MEDIUM BAT HOUSE
1) Hardware cloth is throughout the inside providing a secure material for your bats to hang onto.
2) Hardware cloth is used on the landing pad. This gives the bats something to hold onto when they are trying to enter your house.
3) All seams and cracks are sealed to prevent parasites from easy access to nest sites.
4) Each house has a shingled roof to keep water out and act as a solar collector for heating the house.
5) There is an attic space which is sealed off from the main living chamber. This attic serves as a heat retainer as well as a noise buffer.
6) Each house comes with a hanger so it is ready to be mounted.
MEDIUM BAT HOUSE SIZE AND COLOR OPTIONS
The Bat Houses pictured above are two chambered. They will hold 25 to 50 bats comfortably. Their dimensions are 32" Tall by 13" Wide x 3 1/2" Deep. The unfinished house comes with shingles, rainguard and mounting hardware.
These houses measure 36 inches tall, 12 inches wide and 7 inches deep. They have four chambers, are constructed with galvanized hardware and have tar papered roofs sealed with silicone. They should last a long time providing all the needed shelter and warmth bats need. We have constructed them to meet the guidelines set forth for wetlands and they have been installed all across the country. However, you may want to purchase just one to see if it meets with your local agents approval before you have us make several only to find your agent wanted them an inch wider or taller. If you have a need for many houses but want to first make sure it will comply, buy just one and let the agents review it for to see if they want any changes made. If we have to make revisions you can return it for full credit with no risk of loss. Once the exact specs are determined and agreed upon, we will be able to make them to spec. Their price may change but we will let you know ahead of time. Though the production may take 2-4 weeks, depending on adjustments and quantities ordered, we are prepared to make them to spec.

We were recently interviewed for a segment FOX 5 NEWS ran during their evening news program. The segment talked about bats, why they are good to have around the house and features owner Jonathan Schaefer along with some of the Bat Houses we have been selling. The segment is about 4 minutes long so we posted it as two files, each about 2 minutes long and about 5 Megs in size. If you have a high speed internet connection, you will be able to stream these files playing them as they download. However, if you are using a dial up connection, you will be better off downloading them first and then playing them in their entirety. Click on the link below to go to our Video Page where you will find these files or look below this link for the other pages of our on line catalog. The story was very positive for Bats and may just be showing a changing feeling amongst the general population when it comes to this misunderstood creature.
