Product Description

This large bat house is built to the specifications of Bat Conservation International.  The chambers are best made for the little brown bat, but just email us if you'd like us to make one with larger chambers for other bat scpecies.  This bat house measures 16" X 24" X 6" and works best when hung at least 15' up and mounted on the south east side of a building to catch the morning sun.  Don't put the house so high on the building, that the overhang of the building shades the bat house. 

This bat house may also be mounted to a post, pole or even a tree, however the odds of attracting bats drops, when placed on a post or pole and declines even further if placed in a tree.  This bat house is perfect for nearly the entire United States, using quality dark stain and then two coats of varnish to keep the bats nice and warm throughout the year, while looking great for many years to come.  The only part of the United States we would not recommend this bat house is in Central Texas, Southern California and the southern half of Arizona. 

Unlike other bat houses, this bat house is made with no holes in the top of the house, which will prolong the life of the bat house.  In addition, every seam is glued and caulked, to provide the bats with an airtight chamber above the ventilation slot, exactly as recommended by BATCON, (Bat Conservation International). 

Made in the USA in Argyle, Wisconsin!

Why are our bat houses better?

  1. "Dad's" bat houses are all 100% glued, then sealed with a strong exterior grade caulk, so they are totally wind and water proof.
  2. Our houses come ready to hang, they don't require you to paint or stain them.
  3. Our houses are lined with nylon mesh, secured with stainless steel staples, so the mesh will stay put for years and years to come.
  4. Look at the top of the house.  Ours does not have a screw hole in it.  We come from below with our screws, so the top is solid wood, more weather resistant than other bat houses.
  5. Ours is bigger.  The cute little bat houses...well, they are just that, they are meant to look cute, not attract bats.  Our bat houses are built to the size recommended by the Organization for Bat Conservation and Bat Conservation International.  They WILL attract bats!

Our Dad's Bat Houses are APPROVED by the OBC, Organization for Bat Conservation.  A donation will be made to the OBC for each bat house sold.  Learn more about the OBC, including becoming a member by clicking here.  They have a ton of information on their website about bats.
