BatHouseBunkerPlusBLK2Rotomolded plastic bat house
The Bat Bunker is a unique mixture of technology and simplicity, plastic and wood.  The main component of this revolutionary bat house is its large 36″ x 24″ x 8″  rotationally molded outer shell. The outer shell is a seamless one-piece design that is virtually indestructible and will provide a safe, watertight, and draft-free environment that will last for many years with no maintenance required.

Set it and forget it
Designed for applications where routine maintenance may be unwanted, infrequent, dangerous, or difficult. These bat houses are built from the ground up to never rust, separate, or delaminate, and never need to be painted. The super-duty exterior encases a core of traditional bat-friendly roughened plywood. This model bat house is very similar to those successful designs developed by the PA Game Commission. The Bat Bunker is a Certified Bat House through Bat Conservation International’s Bat House Research Project. Because of the use of recycled material throughout the manufacturing process, Bat Bunkers are great for the environment and provide habitable structures for bats to colonize.

It's in the house
The interior baffles are still made from traditional yellow pine plywood. This helps to add mass, thereby retaining heat at night. Bat Bunkers never need cleaning as the droppings simply fall to the ground. Baffles are estimated to last easily over 20 years, based on similar material used in other bat houses.

Each baffle is individually hand scratched for some of the best bat footholds around. The baffle cluster features pass-thru at the top, allowing bats to easily move between crevices. As with all our bat houses, the baffles do not sit tight against the roof, allowing an "attic space" to form that young pups just love. Baffles form standard 3/4" crevices, suitable for little brown, big brown, Indiana, Northern myotis, Mexican free tailed, and many other bat species across North America. A single Bat Bunker Plus can house approximately 300 Myotis type bats. A single Bat Bunker Plus will accommodate even more Mexican free tail bats. For those in South Florida, please call to order a "sand" colored 4-Chamber Premium Bat House with 1'' baffle spacing specifically for the federally endangered Florida Bonneted Bat. For those in warm climates needing a bat house of this capacity we recommend spray painting the exterior with appropriate light colored paint formulated for plastic that is easily available locally.

Only from BCM
The Bat Bunker Plus is customized and ships completely assembled and painted from our shop in Pennsylvania. BCM bat house experts have upgraded the baffle cluster to provide 6 roosting chambers (to fit 300 bats). This is a significant improvement on the standard 4-chamber (200 bat capacity) design. We have also incorporated the landing plate into the bottom of the molded shell, cleaning up the design and making it less expensive to ship.

Mounting the Bat Bunker Plus
Molded tabs allow for 6-point fastening to pole mount brackets or buildings. Simply attach the mounting bracket to a post or a structure, then hang the Bat Bunker Plus on the mount and fasten together with included lag bolts. The BCM Bat Bunker Plus Pole Mount Bracket is specially designed with a lip to rest the weight of the bat house on during installation. It also thoughtfully adds several inches under the bat house, effectively increasing the size of the landing plate. Two Bat Bunkers can be installed at the top of a single 4’’x6’’ post for high capacity in a small area (use a 16' long post, ~3' in the ground). Use an 18-foot long 6''x6'' post and mount four Bat Bunkers for a potential capacity approaching 1,200 bats.
