The rocket box design has been around for years, and Bat Conservation and Management brings a fresh advancement to this successful design. We start with traditional crevices carved out of an untreated wood post, mimicking a dead tree bats are familiar with. Then a heavy-duty custom outdoor UV-resistant plastic shell protects the roost for a no maintenance roost. Designed so guano naturally falls out, so no cleaning is required. This extra tall design is vented to safely house bats even on hot summer days. 

The BCM Rocket Roost can be added to a 4''x4'' post, 4''x6'' post or add a 2x4 spacer and attach to any flat surface. Available in green only; for warm climates consider installing in part (afternoon) or full shade. As with all bat houses, multiple location or roost designs can increase the chances of occupancy. 

Thanks to "White Nose Syndrome" that has killed millions of bats in North America, the landscape of the bat population has changed. Rocket Roosts tend to attract small families of bats but of a wider range of species, whereas larger nursery bat houses tend to attract a large number of just a few species. Some bats prefer small roosts which end up being less obvious to predators and less prone to parasite overload. So, one bat roost does not fit all, and BCM Rocket Roosts are a great complement to nursery style bat houses especially on forest edges.

Rocket boxes are highly successful and perform better than many other designs. Our test units had big brown bats occupy in less than 10 days at one site, while at another location little brown bats were recorded the first time it was surveyed 45 days after installation. Rocket Roosts are great for large mitigation projects were a number of long-term replacement roosts are necessary, while being far more cost effective than other solutions. 

Contents: (1) 4''x4''x6' Rocket Roost (green) with heavy-duty plastic exterior and associated hardware.

You supply: (1)- 80 lb. bag concrete mix. For the base use (1) 4''x4'' or 4''x6'' treated post. 12' is minimum length for the base, this will get the bottom of the Rocket Roost 10' above ground, assuming 2' is in the ground. Use a longer base post up to 16' if you anticipate the vegetation to grow up and possibly shade the roost. You can make a warp-resistant post by using deck screws to attached two 2x4x16' or 2x6x16' PT together; these are available at any lumber supply. In perpetually wet locations, a Post Protector can be used to greatly extend the life of the base post by protecting the ground-air transition zone where most base posts fail.

How to install: Use two supplied lag bolts to attach the Rocket Roost to the post. It is possible to attach up to four Rocket Roosts to a single post if desired.  Place in a hole with 8'' of gravel at the bottom. At least 2' of the post should be below ground resting on the gravel, then backfill with cement mix. In wet locations use this sleeve or this post protector to protect from long term moisture or enable easy lowering if desired.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • You say that the bats will not roost on the treated post. Why is that? If not the wood, what will they cling to—and how do you know?

    Bats do not roost against the treated post because the roosting spaces are not made from treated wood. This applies to both the Rocket Roost and Super Rocket. At most, bats may land on the treated post very briefly but that is the most contact they would have with it. If desired and available in your area, consider using a black locust post instead, as this will outlast a treated post but availability and cost may factor in.

  • How many bats can a regular rocket box hold?

    Up to about 50 for the standard 4''x4'' Rocket Roost. The point of that structure however is not to have a large number of bats in one roost; it is a more general all-purpose roost type that a wide variety of bat species may use, which may be more important than a large nursery bat house stuffed with one species.

  • Can the Rocket be mounted to a metal post? If so, what size?

    Hello- The 4'' Rocket Roost mount point is 2'' thick x 3'' wide extending below the roost. Two lag bolts are supplied to bolt thru the mount point and into the top of a 4''x4'' or larger wood post. You could replace the lag bolts with 5/16'' stainless steel bolts +washers and nylon lock nut (so it doesn't vibrate itself loost from wind), and drill matching holes into any metal post at least 2'' wide or larger.

  • What types of bats will fit in this roost? I live in MN and we have the large brown bat and I think they needed a slightly larger opening to enter the roost?

    All of our bat houses may be used by any species in North America known to use artificial roosts. On 4'' Rocket Roosts, the entrance is enlarged as we have knocked off the corners around the entrance; this may not be apparent on photographs of test models.

  • How, and how often, do you have to clean the rocket roost? It seems if it's on a pole high up, we would not be able to reach it easily to clean it. Our Conservation Commission is considering installing some, based on successful acoustic surveys, but I could not find info on cleaning on your site. The state DEEP wildlife person advised the rocket roost for us, but again, cleaning would be an issue.

    Hello- the Rocket Roost like all our bat houses are specifically designed so that most if not all the guano falls out on its own. So, there's nothing to clean out.
