If a bat house is placed directly on a flat structure or post, this feature is defeated as the structure will seal off the vent. The mount provides space so that the rear vent may perform as intended. We include a \"Perch Panel\" that can be attached to your wood post which provides protection against predators, while increasing the roost space to accommodate ~32 bats. Perch Panels are not needed when mounting to brick or stone, as those surfaces are already rough enough for bats to roost on.

Florida bonneted bats prefer small harem families and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. 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. \u003cem\u003eFurther north we suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building.\u003c\/em\u003e Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates. Because of the low cost and easy mounting, several DayRoost bat houses are perfect to place in several locations around your property, with somewhat different solar exposures. \u003cem\u003eThis dramatically increases the chances of initially training bats to a bat house and discovering what exposure your local bats are looking for.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eOur decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eEach interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best \"batholds\" possible.

Florida bonneted bats prefer small harem families and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. 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. \u003cem\u003eFurther north we suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building.\u003c\/em\u003e Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates. Because of the low cost and easy mounting, several DayRoost bat houses are perfect to place in several locations around your property, with somewhat different solar exposures. \u003cem\u003eThis dramatically increases the chances of initially training bats to a bat house and discovering what exposure your local bats are looking for.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eOur decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eEach interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best \"batholds\" possible.
