About this Batty Item

Three Chamber Bat House - BCI Certified

This three 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.

Now approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation (MTBC).

Featuring an Integrated Mounting Cleat for easy hanging!

Watch as we build a three 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 5.25"
     Weight:   24 lbs.
     Bat Capacity*:  about 250
     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space:   750

 

*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. The Bats Love It 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2020

    Hello Habitat For Bats,

    I wanted to send you some pics of your 3 chamber bat house that I bought back around the end of March 2020.

    I live in a urban area , a suburb of Houston Texas.

    I installed it on the southeast side of my 2 story house the last week of May. I had to add a 1/2 spacer across the bottom
    and use some tapered shims on the cleat and the spacer because I mounted it on lap board hardy plank siding.

    Well it took about 3 months for the bats to find it and move in to their new home.

    I was so happy when I noticed there were signs of bat habitation in the bat house.

    I noticed the grass had discolored directly underneath the bat house and a lot of bat turds on the side of my house.

    I have attached some pics. Feel free to use them if you want to.

    Thanks for a good quality bat house that the bats found in moved into,

    Chris


  2. Best Bat House 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2020

    I purchased this bat house several years ago and I have a fairly large colony of bats that return to use it every season. I just purchased another bat house with the hopes that the colony will continue to expand. The bat houses are well-made, sturdy, and look much better (visually) than most others that I've seen. I'm very happy with them and so are the bats!


  3. Just what we expected! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2020

    The 3 chamber bat house arrived with a little ding from shipping but is very well built and looks fabulous in it's new home. My husband was able to install it pretty easily.
    Now we wait for the guests!

    Response: We apologize for your bat house "having a little ding from shipping". Glad they didn't totally destroy it.


  4. Impressed with Fit and Finish of the 3 Chamber Bat House 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    After researching many bat houses, I settled on this one because of several positive reviews. But mostly what convinced me to buy here was the honesty that was conveyed from the proprietier. When the question was asked in the Q&A section as to how many bats the houses could support, I felt that the answer provided was very realistic and not driven off of a best case scenario. Very pleased with the quality and I expect it will last a long time. Now if I can just get some tenants.


  5. Great bat house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2016

    The bat house is really high quality and it even looks good too. When my tried to get the post/house into the ground, the whole thing crashed. Nothing was broken!
