Kids love this kit - This is the kit we use in our workshops!

 

Tools needed: small power drill

                 Additional tools you may find helpful:  clamps or masking tape

Supplies needed:  paintable latex caulk, paper towels and water-based paint for exterior finish

 

We use high quality building materials:  exterior grade ACX plywood.  All interior surfaces have cut grooves giving bats a permanent gripping surface that will never come loose and entangle or injure the bats.  Kit comes with instructions, screws, nails and a cut-out bat to decorate the front of the house.

 

The manual covers choosing a paint color, as well as, where and how to install your bat house for the best chances of success.

 

Made in the USA using global materials by us in our BatShop!   UPC #869513000125

Specifications:

     Dimensions:  H 28" x W 18" x 4.5 D "

     Weight:   13 lbs.

     Bat Capacity*:   about 150 to 220 (depending on the species)

     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space: 660

 

*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". 

 

Why does it cost so much to ship?  

Our bat houses are full size and certifiable.  They are not toys or small bird house style kits - this kit ships in a 29x17x3 box and ships at 15 lbs.

  1. Very solid well made kit and easy to put together 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2019

    The bat house looks great and we think it will last a very long time. We appreciate the customer service from Habitat for Bats. We had a couple of questions and they helped.
    In Ky we painted this e chamber bat house a medium charcoal color, added shingles. Used 2 X 4's and U-bolts to connect to the pole. We then put it up on a painted 21' pole, 2"ID. then set in concrete in a 4' hole. (4 men to lift it up.) 1st we put a piece of long 9" wide plywood in the hole so the pole would slide down easily as they lifted. Very heavy but was a great choice. Used a level to make sure straight up.
    We are now just waiting to see some guano droppings at the bottom. It has been up up a week and is now May 2. Hope to see some soon to know we have residents. They way patience is needed. We certainly have plenty of mosquito food for them in our neighborhood.


  2. Excellent product - love the design 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2019

    I really appreciated the ease at which this could be put together, and having the screws and drill bit included in the package was appreciated. Instructions were very clear, as well as nice youtube videos for those needing visual learning. Can't wait for my new tenants!


  3. Easy and good looking family project - 3 chamber 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2019

    My son and I enjoyed a nice afternoon assembling the bat house together. Instructions were clear and assembly was a breeze.

    We wall mounted to brick and added a couple of mounting points on the bottom, just in case.

    We're looking forward to some tenants moving in!


  4. Easy to assemble 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2018

    The product arrived quickly and all the pieces were there. It came with clear instructions on how to assemble it and took me less than 20minutes. The wood is sturdy and ready to be painted with no splinters. I am very happy with this purchase.


  5. Consumer's dream 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2017

    Often when you buy a kit, it comes with challenges to construct. Not this one. Everything was precision cut and milled, making construction a breeze. Even the baffles slid in smoothly. Can't go wro with this kit.
