Artificial roosts may be attempted where there is a loss of natural habitat. Occasionally they are used to mitigate other unintended roosts, like people’s attics. When we talk about artificial bat roosts, most people think of bat houses. Believe it or not, artificial roosts for bat mitigation or management can be categorized into no less than seven groups! Other man-made roosts bats may be found in include Artificial Bark, Artificial Trees, Bridges, Culverts, Old Buildings, and even purposely build Artificial Caves!
Our 4 and 6 chamber bat houses feature a rotomolded exterior requires no assembly or painting, and outlasts any all-wood bat house. These bat houses have crevices suitable for species found all over North America.
Our Triple Chamber bat house is also suitable for everywhere in North America. The larger mass of this bat house makes it more likely to be used in cooler climates. Double Chamber bat houses feature two crevice widths which may be ideal for southern states where different bat species may prefer both crevice types. Our Single Chamber bat house is also good for Gulf Coast states, but is specially targeted towards the endangered Florida Bonneted bats in south Florida. All of our wood bat houses are available as do-it-yourself kits.
