Bat House Exterior Sizes

4 Chamber, approximately 20 inches high x 5-1/4 inches wide x 6-1/4 inches deep, will house 40 to 75 bats, weighs approximately 7 pounds before packaging for shipment.

Instructions For Placement of Your Bat House

Select a location that will provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily and facing a southern direction. The bat house should be mounted at least 15 feet above ground level. It can be mounted on a house, garage, barn, wood pole, metal pipe, tree, etc. It should not be hung from a rope or chain. It should be mounted rigidly to maintain it’s orientation to the south. Avoid placement above doors, windows, and walkways. If a location with 6 hours of sunlight is not available, the house can be painted with nontoxic black paint on the exterior only. Never paint or stain the interior. After you have your house installed, be patient. Bats locate the houses by sight, so if your house is mounted on a tree in dense foliage, it may take longer for the bats to find it.
