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.

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

Specifications:
     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!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/

  1. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. Excellent quality bat house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2017

    I've finally managed to realize my dream of having a place for bats to call home that I've provided.

    I'm in a location that meets all of the criteria for being successful in attracting bats so it's with great optimism that I purchased this bat house.

    I have to say that the quality exceeds my expectation and no doubt once it's discovered by the local bats it will easily meet their requirements as well.

    Now, the wait begins for word of the new home to spread with the breeze, prospective occupants performing inspections and discovering that indeed luxury accommodations have been provided and there are vacancies to fill!

    The local mosquitoes will soon find a new sheriff is in town, who takes no prisoners!


  4. Best bat house EVER 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2017

    We live in the mountains of north Georgia and had a single chamber bat house that has been inhabited every year since we put it up. This past year we had a bat winter in the house and wanted to encourage that so we started looking for an additional bat house. After much research and reading reviews we went with the four chamber nursery bat house from Habitat For Bats and could not be more pleased. This bat house is incredibly well constructed and is truly awesome!!! We had added a special request on the comment section and were thrilled when the house arrived and was exactly what we had asked for. The instruction booklet was quite helpful and well detailed. I called with a question about the bats themselves and had a wonderful conversation the woman at Habitat For Bats who was very helpful and knowledgeable. We put the bat house up as soon as it arrived and are pleased to say the bats love their new home as much as we do! Hoping when spring arrives there will be even more new residents! Thank you Habitat For Bats!!!
