your Bat House
Small single chamber bat houses work best attached to a wooden or
masonry structure . Large multi chamber houses, such as the
nursery colony sized ones sold here, work anywhere the smaller bat houses
will. Plus they will also successfully attract bats in locations that
do not contribute thermal mass such as poles or metal sided
buildings. Attaching bat houses to trees is not recomended and should be avoided for a variety of
Nursery colonys for most species of bats need to be 1/4 mile or less
from a good water source. Some limited success with Brazilian
Free-tailed bats and bachelors of
other species has been achieved at greater distances. More than one
mile from water and your probably wasting your time installing a bat
house. As much as I would like to sell you a nice bat house, I hate see
disappointed customers. It is also wasteful of resources to build
things that are never used.
