Red cedar is an essential element when it comes to a successful bat house. Cedar is a natural resistant to mold and insects and attracts bats to their new home. The cedar helps keep the bats free of (WNS). Cedar removes moisture from the air that helps give the bat house the perfect climate to strive and reproduce.  

 

The 1/2" hand cut grooves help the bats hang around.       :)

A FEW TRICKS OF THE TRADE

BATS ONLY!!

A good critter guard will keep chipmunks and squirrels away.

The 3/4" roosting chambers keeps the bats close and helps keep wasps from nesting.

BACKYARD BAT HOUSE  is always looking for ways to improve, and the first thing we learned is that a good roof goes a long way. This single shingle helps water run off and greatly extends the life of the bat house.

GOLDILOCKS TEMPERATURE

Just like my wife keeps reminding me...

The key to a happy home is a happy temperature. Bat houses shouldn't alter in temp throughout the seasons. Allowing the bats to maintain body temp will determine seasonal bat houses. This is why bat houses need multiple deep chambers.

PROPER VENTILATION 

Imagine that - Bats need air too!

I found that by equally distributing air vents 6"  from the top and bottom keeps the bats cooler during summer and warmer during the winter. Bats will move around to find the warm spots. These bat houses have 3 different roosting temps. The higher chamber keep bats the warmest by trapping their body heat.

KEEP A GOOD THING GOING

An all natural wood sealer is the last step in giving longevity to the bat houses.

Boiled linseed has been proven time and time again to seal wood better than any other sealer .
