QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
Can I get plans for a bat condo to build in NY?
A bat condo was really designed/intended for little brown bats, southeastern bats, and Mexican free tail bats. Unfortunately WNS has all but eliminated little brown bats from your area and Mexican free tails & southeasterns do not live in your area naturally. I cannot recommend a bat “condo” size structure for anywhere in the NE, unless there is a demonstrable colony of a significant size nearby. Bats today are better served by numerous, smaller structures. These have advantages over a single large structure, one being cost for sure, but there are other biological reasons. I offer 3 structures that are larger than a typical single bat house, but smaller than a bat “condo”. Depending on how many acres you have, you might consider a few installations to provide bats with a few options. The 3 structures are: https://batmanagement.com/products/super-duplex-bat-house https://batmanagement.com/products/modular-mini-bat-condo-2x2 and https://batmanagement.com/products/modular-mini-bat-condo-3x3 You would want to select the darker colors and the “northern roof” roof option for optimal solar heating. If you have the luxury of space, I would suggest one structure in full sun and another that is in full sun in the morning, then perhaps some shade in the afterno
I have recently found bats living in my attic in Yukon, from the noise and activity I suspect it’s a sizeable colony. I will need to wait until the fall when they leave to their winter roost to seal everything up, however in the meantime I am looking for the best option to give them a roost when they return in the spring. This option looks like it might work for them, we have an Acre and many full sun areas on the property. I absolutely love having bats around, I just don’t love them in my home. We have the plan to seal off the entrances (once we officially find all of them, we suspect at least a couple). Would you recommend this structure for my area?
I would install ColonyLodge bat houses next to the main entry crevices bats are using to get into the building. - thanks!
How do you know when it is safe to dump guano, without accidentally dumping those downed pups? I would be concerned that I was risking hurting someone. Is there a best time of day/year to do this? I'm in central Texas.
Hello- you would empty guano in the "off" pup season, in winter for example. Pups that are in the guano likely will not survive. Bat houses with close bottoms are really more suited for northern/high elevation locations that need to be closed up more to hold heat. A closed bottom would not be appropriate for Mexican free tails as their large number would cause a lot of guano management. For TX, choose an open bottom design like our 2x2 or 3x3 Modular Condos. https://batmanagement.com/products/modular-mini-bat-condo-2x2
