BCM Double Chamber Bat House DIY Kit

Product Description

Our Double 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 slotted sides, roughened yellow pine front and back, one roughened baffles, 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.

Our Double Chamber Bat House is suitable for all climates particularly where species diversity is mixed between bats preferring several sizes of roost chambers. This Double Chamber Bat House is built with both 0.75'' and 1'' roost chambers. This is particularly useful in the Gulf Coast states where Mexican/Brazilian free tails, Southeastern myotis, big brown bats, little brown bats, and even Florida bonneted bats all have overlap in various areas. Because double chamber bat houses do not have quite the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to color dark and consider mounting on sunny sides of buildings in cooler climates.

This box should be painted appropriately for your area, and generally plan on black or a shade of brown (see color chart for your area). Minimal caulking is recommended to finish the roof, then the roofing shingle should be attached. Includes 16-page manual with complete finishing, site determination, installation, and maintenance instructions. A pole mount is suggested if placing this box on a post. 

 Whats in the box?

Kit includes: 16-page manual, back, front, sides, roof strips, baffle, asphalt roofing material, and construction adhesive.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask BCM a Question
    • I live in Northen Maryland. Do you recommend installing a pup-catcher with this box?

      Usefulness of pup catchers is debatable. Some swear by them while others have witness bats simply refuse to stay in the bat house regardless of the pup catcher. The assumption is something is inheriently wrong with the pups and they will not survive with or without a pup catcher. One theroy is that a bat's first young is subjected to an inordinate amount of pesticide buildup in the mother, and makes the first young less likely to survive. Regardless of the reason why pups fall out of bat houses, some kind of "pup catcher" isn't a bad idea, as long as it doesn't inadvertantly obstruct the flight path into the bat house. Pup catchers are simple screens that extend down from the landing plate. There is a DIY solution here: https://batworld.org/bat-house-pup-catcher/ that we like because it is adaptable to whatever bat house or roost you are having problems with.    Note the “pup catcher” and it’s parts will deteriorate over time and should be considered something that is a temporary fixture to your problem roost. You might consider only installing  it when pups are around... May thru July.
