About this Batty Item

Two Chamber Bat House - BCI Certified

This two chamber bat house is built to meet and exceed all 10 of Bat Conservation International (BCI) certification requirements once finished according to the instructions.  We've taken great effort to create a ready to finish, durable, practical and easy to install bat house.

Featuring an Integrated Mounting Cleat for easy hanging!

Watch as we build a two chamber bat house:


We use high quality building materials:  exterior grade ACX plywood, weatherproof fasteners, and a 50 year polyurethane adhesive caulk.  All interior surfaces have cut grooves giving bats a permanent gripping texture that will never come loose and entangle or injure the bats.  Internal baffles are spaced 3/4" apart; the research based, bat preferred spacing.  

Includes a finishing guide and complete manual that covers where and how to install your bat house for the best chance of success.  

Made in the USA

Specifications:
     Dimension:  H 31" x W 20" x D 4"
     Weight:   20 lbs.
     Bat Capacity*:  about 175
     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space:   500

 

*We attempt to be honest with our estimates allowing approx 3 cubic inches for each bat. This includes an allowance for unused space since the bats will not pack the house top to bottom. Some species will crowd in very tightly, others will not.  Here's the math: "Cubic Inches of Roosting space / 3 Cubic Inches = estimate of capacity".

FAQ - Explaining the Bat House Colors (06:54)
We have new bat house colors for 2013. After research and measuring temperatures we have adjusted our bat house colors this year. We now offer 3 shades of brown, Dark, Medium and Light. These colors help keep the temperature inside the bat house to the correct range of 85 to 100 degrees depending on your area. If you are in a cold area you want the Dark Brown. Most areas will be good with the Medium Brown and the hottest areas need the light brown colors.We have placed all three shades of our two chamber bat houses in direct sunlight on a bright sunny day in May here in Georgia. We use a digital infrared thermometer to measure the temperatures inside and on the skin of the bat houses to see the effect of the radiant energy on each bat house. Results were good and support our color choices.Enjoy this brief video and let us know if you have any questions!Visit us at http://www.HabitatForBats.orgGet Your Bat House at our Bat eStore http://eStore.HabitatForBats.orgOur YouTube Channel http://www.YouTube.com/h4bats---Royalty Free Music from SmartSound http://www.smartsound.com/
