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 built Artificial Caves!
Our 4 Chamber Universal Bat House and Bat Bunker Plus bat houses feature a rotomolded exterior requires no assembly or painting, and should outlast any all-wood bat house. These bat houses have different crevice widths suitable for species found all over North America, so these are great "one size fits all" options that last a long time.
The Super Rocket Roost simulates a dead tree, allowing bats to enter into crevices found under an industrial-quality plastic shell. Two kinds of crevices are found the length of the roost, allowing bats to find just what they are looking for. It's a different look, easy to install, and should be successful in all but the hottest regions.
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. The crevices are all 3/4'' wide for larger colonies of Mexican free tails, southeastern myotis, little brown bats, and other species similar in size.
Lower cost Double Chamber bat houses feature two different crevice widths for different species around the country. From pallid bats in the desert to free tails in the south, to big browns in the north, and myotis everywhere in between, wherever you are you probably have a bat species that would find this bat house interesting.
Our Single Chamber bat house is good for Gulf Coast states, or anywhere you might mount to a building so as to take advantage of radiant heat. It 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, in order to reduce costs.
