Attractively decorated with a cast-iron star, this triple-celled bat house has earned Bat Conservation International's "Bat Approved" Certification. This house was designed based on the results of more than 10 years of research and meets all 10 criteria as outlined by Bat Conservation International.
Bat houses of this design, which holds up to 300 bats, have been proven to have a greater than 80% occupancy rate.
The interior surface and landing platform is made of rough cut cedar making it easy for bats to cling when roosting and landing. The 1/4" ventilation gap in the front of the house, in conjunction with the birthing chamber in the attic space, serves to maintain proper temperature and helps with air circulation. The roof is slanted forward at 30 degrees for better rain run-off.
3/4" chamber(s) give protection from predators, and deter wasps and hornets which prefer 1 1/2" chambers.
This bat house weathers beautifully as it is made of weather-resistant
Western Red Cedar.
Comes with mounting instructions/screws. 29"H x 14"W x 4.5" depth
