About this Batty Item

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. Has a small chamber at the top for birthing bats.
Now approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation (MTBC).

Featuring an Integrated Mounting Cleat for easy hanging!

Watch as we build a four chamber bat house:

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.  The roof is painted with a complimentary 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.  Select from 3 different colors, based upon the average (July) high temperatures for your area.  If your average July temperature is 84 degrees or less, please go back to "Finished Bat Houses" and select a cold weather bat house.

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".

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!

  1. Very Roomy House for Expanding Colony 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2021

    Let me start by saying I have ordered from this company previously and was pleased with the bat house I purchased then, as I am now with my most-recent purchase. I bought another house because the bat colony I have had for several years, continues to expand. The craftsmanship on each bat house I have purchased is exceptional. The bats have found them quickly and appear content because the colony expands each year when they return. Shipping was prompt and the houses were packaged to ensure damage-free delivery.

  2. Great bat house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jan 2021

    Product came well wrapped and in about ten days. Product was very well constructed, and accompanied by complete installation instructions. I mounted it way up high, on the side of my house. I painted it to match the color of my house. After a couple of weeks, still have not seen any bats, but it is winter here in Tucson.

  3. New bat House 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2019

    We just got this bat house and mounted it in an area as stated. I mounted it to a 4x4x20' post prior to putting it up. Mounting went smooth and setting the post equally as smooth. The house looks great and blends in even though its in a clearing in our back yard. We just put it up in December so we're still waiting for some inhabitants, but we've just started seeing them around the house and seeing as spring is coming it's only a matter of time.

    I sent an email to ask some additional questions and called and both times I received prompt and courteous information. Would recommend the seller for this point alone. I have no complaints except that I put it up in the winter.

  4. Our bats LOVE this house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    We have a barn which has three bat boxes on the west side. This past Spring I removed the oldest house and replaced it with this new 4-chambered condo. It took the bats a month or so to detect the change, but once they found it, word quickly spread. We do bi-weekly emergence counts for our state Dept. of Environ. Protection, and we often have 50-60 bats coming out of the new house, and 1 or 2, or no, bats coming from the others. An additional time-averaged measure of occupancy if the size of the guano piles beneath each house; the new one has by far the largest pile beneath it.
    The previous respondents’ comments about “do all the prep work first and THEN haul this monster up the ladder” are spot on. I hung it from a rope, and it made it MUCH easier to manhandle two stories into the air. The hanging cleat is WONDERful. All in all, I give this 6 stars out of 5.

  5. Very Nice. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2017

    The bat house was very well made and I received it in a very reasonable time. Now I just need them to use their new home.
