Four Chamber Nursery Bat House - BCI Certified
This four chamber bat house is built to meet and exceed all 10 of Bat Conservation International (BCI) certification requirements. We've taken great effort to create a completely finished, durable, practical and easy to install bat house. There is a small chamber at the top for birthing bats. It has features that are designed specifically for locations with colder temperatures (average July temperatures less than 85 degrees).
Now approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation (MTBC).
Featuring an Integrated Mounting Cleat for easy hanging!
We use high quality building materials: exterior grade ACX plywood, weatherproof fasteners, a 50 year polyurethane adhesive caulk, and two coats of premium, self priming exterior water-based paint. 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.
This cold weather bat house does not have vents on the front so the bat house maintains as much heat as possible. It is painted black for maximum heat absorption. Roof has been weatherproofed with a 10X deck paint to improve appearance, durability and solar heating.
Includes a complete manual that covers where and how to install your bat house for the best chance of success.
Made in the USA
Dimension: H 31" x W 20" x D 6.25"
Weight: 28 lbs.
Bat Capacity*: about 350 to 400
Cubic Inches of Roosting Space: 1000
*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".

I did my research prior to buying this bat house. The construction of this house is solid. The friendly people at Habitat For Bats were great with answering questions prior to my purchase. I installed my "Bat Bellagio" house this past weekend. Be sure to follow the suggestions in the manual for best chances of success.
As this was purchased too late in the year to be inhabited, I will just note that it is of very good materials and very well constructed. It is exactly what I had expected, this being my second purchase from Habitats for Bats.
