Our Three Chamber Bat House Kit saves you the bother of dealing with large sheets of plywood, painstaking roughening, and gathering some supplies. All parts are ready for assembly. Included in this kit are: a 16-page assembly manual, painting instructions for your locality, 2 slotted sides, roughened yellow pine front and back, two roughened baffles, screws, roof, roof supports, construction adhesive, and a black asphalt roofing shingle.
Our decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.
Each interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best "batholds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups have been documented becoming trapped under it. The finished box requires exterior paint or stain to complete.
Approved by Bat Conservation International. Invented and built in Pennsylvania. A pole mount is suggested if planning to use this box on a post. This kit is demonstrated at Bat Conservation International's annual Bat Conservation and Management Pennsylvania Workshop each year since 2002.
Assembling with a child? We suggest helping squeeze the caulking gun. When drilling, it may be best for the adult to start each screw partway into the wood, then letting Junior squeeze the drill trigger and set the screw.
