BCM Double Chamber Bat House

Product Description

Our Double Chamber Bat House is suitable for all climates particularly where species diversity is mixed between bats preferring several sizes of roost chambers. Built in PA by BCM, this is solid full featured wooden bat house. Not sold elsewhere. Material: all wood.

This Double Chamber Bat House is built with both 0.75'' and 1'' roost chambers. This is particularly useful in the Gulf Coast states where Mexican/Brazilian free tails, Southeastern myotis, big brown bats, little brown bats, and even Florida bonneted bats all have overlap in various areas. Because double chamber bat houses do not have quite the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to color dark and consider mounting on sunny sides of buildings in cooler climates.

We have assembled all the critical elements of the box, including the roof and the interior crevices. The exterior is tough 1/2'' thick plywood with all seams glued and sealed. Our decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.

No drilling or screw driving is required except when mounting to a post or building. Each interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best "batholds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups can become trapped under it. This box should be painted appropriately for your area, and generally plan on black or a shade of brown (see color chart for your area). Minimal caulking is recommended to finish the roof, then the roofing shingle should be attached. Includes 16-page manual with complete finishing, site determination, installation, and maintenance instructions.

Approved by Bat Conservation International. Created and built in Pennsylvania. A pole mount is suggested if placing this box on a post. 

How to finish this bat house:

  1. Paint or stain a color according to your climate (see manual). Use 3 or more coats.
  2. Use adhesive to caulk around the roof, and then glue on the included roofing shingle. You may add a tube of exterior grade adhesive to your order at checkout to save a trip to the hardware store.
  3. Screw the bat house to the pole mount and a 4''x6''x16' post (~$35 at local lumber yards) cemented 3' into the ground, or attach to the sunny side of a structure. Metal telescoping poles sold by bird house vendors are too flimsy for any of our bat houses.
  4. Use the remaining adhesive to coat the upper mounting lip of the bat house that will be exposed to weather
  5. Touch up the paint and say "Just add bats!"

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • How high above the ground should I set up my bat house?

    The bat house should be situated at least 10’ above the ground. 

  • What color should my bat house be?

    Because bats need an adequate amount of warmth during the day, solar exposure is very important when setting up a bat house. However bats can also get too warm, so coordinating bat house color with your geographic location can aid in having a successful bat house. Refer to the temperature zone map located on our Four-Chamber bat house page

  • Cedar vs. yellow pine wood for the most durable bat house and lowest maintenance?

    The wood thickness has something to do with it,  how many screws are used to hold it all together, and how well the bat houses have been finished (how many coats of paint used, etc.). So, material is actually not a big player in this in my opinion. True cedar may be more insect resistant, but either box will probably fall apart from normal weathering long before insect damage comes into play.
    BCM pre-scratches all interior surfaces of all kits in multiple directions, so bats have the maximum ability to hold on. We do not use screen that bats can become trapped under.

    The longest lasting bat houses will be the plastic shells such as the Four Chamber Premium.
