color of house
Hi- this depends a bit on your location. High elevations and northern states should be black or dark brown or dark green. Gulf coast states should be medium. From there its a matter of setting up a few bat houses and let the local bats tell you what they are looking for, by watching when the leave and arrive thru the year.
What do I use to attach shingle to roof of bat house? I got my assembled bat house with mount. Everything was done and included but the shingle.
Hi! You want to apply several coats of paint or stain the bat house first, then use a large amount of the included construction adhesive to attach the shingle. Also apply where the shingle meets the back. This is the spot that will fail first. After installing, you might consider putting flashing over the entire top of the bat house.
