Bat House, Handmade Wooden Bats House Single Chamber, Insect Mosquito Control, Outdoor Gardening Tool, Wall Mount, Item #508858977
What? You don't like bats?! Now that's to be expected with all the hype about about Vampires and Zombies. And who new that Vampires are so good looking! Just look at Antonio Banderas, Tom Cruz and Brad Pitt in "Interview With A Vampire". Yea...that's what I am talking about. And if you haven't seen the movie...I suggest you go rent it. Okay...anyways...Bats EAT those little pesky mosquitoes that suck your blood and give you nasty welts that you scratch until they bleed. Ouch! In fact! They eat 1000 mosquitoes an hour!!! Hello! Now do you want a bat house?
I've constructed this bat house with all elements in mind and to the specifications of the Bat Conservation. The interior is left raw, as well as the landing pad that I've cut small lines in with a razor blade for their tiny claws (which are very sharp and can hold on to most surfaces) The interior is rough fence board which gives ample grabbing power for the bats.
NOTE: NOT VALID WITH FREE SHIPPING.
BAT HOUSE DIMENSIONS:
Interior - Single Chamber
17" Of Bat Space
3/4" Deep Crawl Space Chamber (they love it small and tight to keep warm)
Entire bat's house:
22-1/2" long x 11" wide x 2" deep
The roof is 4-1/2" deep x 15"
The outside of bat house has been painted with exterior Hunt Club Green over Grey Primer to absorb the heat from the sun (inside is left raw for bats safety). The front is accented with Espresso Brown and a cool pattern. You may also use this on your front porch as a decorative piece and bats will find it as a place to crawl in and rest until dusk when they're in flight for mosquitoes.
The sides are glued, nailed together for durability and longevity, along with biscuit joined seams. This single chamber will hold up to 25 or more bats, depending on your area and population of these critters and which species. Bat house is to be mounted 15 feet (preferably on the South side where sunny) or it can be mounted on a high post in center of garden. Hang bat house up under your tallest eaves to invite our batty friends to come and eat all those pesky bugs.
Bats are in need of a place to thrive, raise their young and be safe so our environment can benefit from their ability to eat 1000 mosquitoes in one hour. That's a lot of bugs and I know I don't like to get bit when I'm enjoying dinner out on my patio in the evening. Plus, it's fun to watch bats scurry through the sky at dusk.

Wood birdhouses (and all my creations) are made from raw untreated fence material which makes it easier on the birds by allowing the roughness of the interior for birds to grab, along with a dowel that protrudes through for extra grabbing power. Each birdhouse I build has a unique roof design, by me, which allows for ventilation air flow on each underside of eaves. Every decorative bird house or functional birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door on either the right or left hand side for nest removal. Whether you choose to use it indoors for decorative home accent or hang it on your patio, tree, fence or just sitting on a shelf, it's meant for small cavity nesting birds. Birdhouse accent materials are adhered with clear silicone that is weatherproof and freeze proof for that extra longevity outdoors. The bottom of each birdhouse has drainage holes on each corner to allow unwanted water from rain to escape, leaving birds and their nest dry. I use quality glue, nails and decorative screws to hold my birdhouses together.
