When the management goals are to house approximately 2,600 bats and aesthetics of multiple Seven Chamber Steel the Bat Houses are not an option, the Mini Bat Condo is the solution. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003eThe \"Bat Motel\"structure was originally designed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission to fill the void between the 300 bat capacity \"bat house\" and the 7,000+ capacity \"bat condo\". Over the years we have modified the design and it is now evolved into a scaled down version of the highly successful, sturdy Bat Condo. Previously land managers on a budget but with a significant bat challenge could only install multiple houses to provide enough alternate habitat. For most folks five or ten separate bat houses on individual posts throughout the property is unrealistic.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003eWe took the full size idea, scaled it down, and improved upon it. At 4' square and approximately 6' high at the peak, approximately 68 roost baffles create the core of the roost. Roof crevices create a \"triple layer roof\" where bats may roost against the inside of the roof-- perhaps the most valuable crevices available. The \"floor\" of the Mini Condo is a closed bottom that provides some protection for downed pups. The inside of the doors is coated with fiberglass for longevity and ease of guano dumping. The best bat entrances of the full size condo are preserved here, the entire sides of the Mini Condo form a gigantic landing plate for bats to land and enter under the eves. As with our smaller house designs, the bottom third of the Mini Condo is vented to assure a temperature gradient.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: center;\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/127329347\" width=\"480\" height=\"270\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style88\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eInstallation.\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eBecause a Mini Condo uses stand off bases so the posts do not directly contact the ground, on the first visit we will help you site the bat house and then install the foundation.

BCM Mini Bat Condo

Product Description
$850.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

A midsize bat colony needs a mid-sized bat structure. When the management goals are to house approximately 2,600 bats and aesthetics of multiple Seven Chamber Steel the Bat Houses are not an option, the Mini Bat Condo is the solution.

The "Bat Motel"structure was originally designed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission to fill the void between the 300 bat capacity "bat house" and the 7,000+ capacity "bat condo". Over the years we have modified the design and it is now evolved into a scaled down version of the highly successful, sturdy Bat Condo. Previously land managers on a budget but with a significant bat challenge could only install multiple houses to provide enough alternate habitat. For most folks five or ten separate bat houses on individual posts throughout the property is unrealistic.

We took the full size idea, scaled it down, and improved upon it. At 4' square and approximately 6' high at the peak, approximately 68 roost baffles create the core of the roost. Roof crevices create a "triple layer roof" where bats may roost against the inside of the roof-- perhaps the most valuable crevices available. The "floor" of the Mini Condo is a closed bottom that provides some protection for downed pups. The inside of the doors is coated with fiberglass for longevity and ease of guano dumping. The best bat entrances of the full size condo are preserved here, the entire sides of the Mini Condo form a gigantic landing plate for bats to land and enter under the eves. As with our smaller house designs, the bottom third of the Mini Condo is vented to assure a temperature gradient.

Installation. Because a Mini Condo uses stand off bases so the posts do not directly contact the ground, on the first visit we will help you site the bat house and then install the foundation. A few days must pass for the foundation to set. If the installation site is accessible by truck, we will install a mostly assembled Mini Condo using a crane. We usually build the Mini Condo in one or two major sections at our shop, then finish assembly onsite, adding baffles, siding, and trim before finally painting. Properly installing and completing a Mini Condo will take a full day.

Cost. An $850 deposit is required. Total cost of a Mini Condo will be the $4500-$8000 range depending on shipping and other factors. Commercial shipping is not an option due to the odd sizes of the prefabricated parts. BCM takes care of a site survey/placement recommendations, delivery, assembling on site, setting posts, mounting, and finishing a new Motel. Includes, well, everything...just add bats. Motels are made-to-order, please plan your project accordingly and call or write for quote for installation to your area and lead time required.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask 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

  • 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
