BCM Single Chamber Bat House Kit

Product Description

Our Single Chamber Bat House Kit saves you the bother of dealing with large sheets of plywood, painstaking roughening, and gathering some supplies. All parts are ready for assembly. Included in this kit are: a 16-page assembly manual, painting instructions for your locality, 2 sides, roughened yellow pine front and back, screws, roof, roof supports, construction adhesive, and a black asphalt roofing shingle.

Our decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.

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 have been documented becoming trapped under it. The finished box requires exterior paint or stain to complete. A pole mount is suggested if planning to use this box on a post.

Assembling with a child? We suggest helping squeeze the caulking gun. When drilling, it may be best for the adult to start each screw partway into the wood, then letting Junior squeeze the drill trigger and set the screw.

Our Single Chamber Bat House is suitable for warm climates, the Gulf Coast states, and especially if targeting the federally endangered Florida bonneted bat in the south half of Florida.  This Single Chamber Bat House is built with the Florida bonneted bat in mind. This species prefers small harem families of bats and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. It is also the largest bat in North America and therefore prefers somewhat larger roost crevices. Since it is located in the southern half of Florida, this single chamber bat house will get plenty warm enough to sustain bonneted bats year-round. If targeting bonneted bats, mount 15' or more above ground in as wide open a space as possible. Of course, other species may use this bat house as well, particularly Mexican/Brazilian free tails and big brown bats found around all the Gulf Coast states and NM, AZ, and low elevations of CA. Further north we only suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, as most other species will prefer 0.75'' crevice spacing and may not use this bat house. Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask BCM a Question
    • I may not have been clear on my question. The single chamber house you have for sale states that it's for warm climates. Do you have one that is suitable for the climate of Rhode Island and what the difference would be? I think they have large brown bats. Thanks

      Hi for big brown bats you'll want the Double Chamber bat house, or the Four Chamber Universal bat house, or the Super Rocket Roost. These three models have some larger crevices that big brown bats seem to occupt first. However, big brown bats have been known to go into all the model bat houses on our site. Paint your black and place it at least 10' above ground in full sun if possible.

    • Is the pole kit to secure the box on top of a pole or on the side of a pole? We have a 4"x4" post we were going to put it on. What is included in the kit? Thanks!

      Hi - the Pole Mount Kit contains 2- PT 2x4 countersunk for lag bolts. You bolt these to your posts with the included lag bolts at the appropriate distance at the top of the post then at the bottom of the bat house. Check out the video on the product page and you will see how it goes together. The pole mount essentially allows you to mount the relatively wide bat house to a narrow post.
