The weight of the wooden bat house requires that a mount be used to properly support the box on a narrow pole. This pressure treated mount includes all necessary hardware. Instructions are located in our bat house manual, but the short version is:
1. Set the mount on the post, predrill holes into the post.
Countersunk holes have been pre-drilled. A 4''x4''' or 4''x6'' pressure treated post is recommended and must be purchased locally. Use a 14' or 16' long post. A pole mount is not necessary if planning to attach the box to a wide, flat structure, though using spacers between the box and structure is still a good idea.
This pole mount may not work with bat houses not manufactured by BCM. Not for use on metal poles without some end user modifications. This pole mount is NOT REQUIRED for our Seven Chamber Steel Bat House or the Bat Can Bat House as the mounting brackets are built in to those products. Please see the bat house manual for mounting tips. The current pole mount may slightly differ from photo.
