DayLodge - Triple Chamber, Plywood, Fully-Assembled

Product Description

Related instruction manuals for the DayLodge: All About Bat Houses and DayLodge.

Our DayLodge bat house is based on a tried and true design suitable across all of North America. The exterior is tough 1/2'' thick plywood, 1.5'' thick sides, and 1/2'' recycled plastic black roof, assembled with ~35 screws. All exterior seams are glued during assembly. Our iconic bat design on the front, and a slot on the back, are vents helping prevent bats from overheating. DayLodge comes with exterior structural mounting screws that support the entire bat house, eliminating the problem of roofs and backs separating. DayLodge is the strongest, most long lasting plywood bat house BCM has ever produced. Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation

  • Recommended as an all-around bat house that offers capacity with reasonable cost, great for starting new colonies.
  • Sides are 2''x4'', stronger/thicker than competitors.
  • Screenless design is safer for bats. DreamRoost's interior is permanently and severely roughened with random direction overlapping scratches; provides more rough surface for pups than competitors.
  • Rear vent allows bats to cool off between the bat house and the mounting surface. When placed on our Mount Kit or against a wall using appropriate spacers, an additional roost crevice is formed, increasing the usefulness and capacity.
  • Decorative front bat cutout helps protect bats from overheating.
  • Suitable for all climates with appropriate coloring; under DayLodge's virtually indestructible plastic roof is a sold block of wood that buffers temperature changes.
  • Interior 13''x3.5''x1'' Pup Playground attic allows bats to change baffles and avoid predators.
  • 7/8'' and 15/16'' crevices for nationwide use on all bat house loving species.
  • Mounted primarily using two 6'' long heavy duty TimberLOK hex head screws pre-drilled; no stress or seams on the roof for maximum longevity. 
  • Roof is 1/2'' recycled "plastic lumber"; virtually indestructible and UV resistant.
  • 4'' landing area and recessed roost baffles provide a protective overhang.
  • Solid 2x4 interior roof block buffers temperature extremes and creates a super solid roof structure.

All interior surfaces have been permanently roughened by hand in random directions for the best "bat holds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups can be trapped under it. This box should be painted appropriately for your area. 

Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation. Created and built in Pennsylvania, appropriate for use in Canada and all US states except Hawaii.

 

Need multiple bat houses for a larger project? Our generous 20% discount for bat conservation!

Great for workshops, scout groups, and anyone needing lots of roosts fast- we offer 20% off 6 or more assembled DayLodges! Use coupon code BATTYFORBATHOUSES at checkout; offer good only at checkout. Note: Multiple DayLodge bat houses may be packaged in one shipping box.


In the Box of an Assembled DayLodge: 

  1. Assembled DayLodge, 3 chamber bat house, unpainted
  2. (2) 6'' TimberLOK mounting screws
  3. (2) 1-1/2'' exterior mounting screws
  4. Manual is located here: https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals

 

Finishing/Mounting Materials needed: 

  1. Exterior paint or stain or sealant (black, or a shade of brown or green for most climates) Bats -will- move into unpainted bat houses in many areas, but the bat house will last longer when painted, stained, or sealed.
  2. Utility knife (refresh bat holds after painting).
  3. Mount into wood with cordless drill with phillips screw tip & 8mm socket tip (or 8mm socket wrench).
  4. Mount Kit with Pup Perch, optional and sold seperately, but strongly recommended. Should be used with wood posts, siding, brick, or stone. Choose your mounting surface kit below, or make your own spacers. 

How to finish this bat house:

  1. Paint or stain or seal a color according to your climate (see manual). Use 3 or more coats of any exterior brand. Painting may fill in the scratch marks on the landing area, so avoid this area or be sure to refresh scratches using a utility knife.
  2. Screw the Mount Kit and Perch Panel to a 4''x6''x16' treated post (~$45 at local lumber yards), attach the bat house to the Mount, and then cement the post  2.5'+ into the ground. Alternately, attach the bat house to the sunny side of a structure using the Mount Kit or at least your own 2''x4'' spacers. Please see our Learning Center for more considerations before installing a bat house.
  3. Say "Just add bats!"

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask BCM a Question
    • I have heard sketchy information linking bats (among other animals) to corona viruses. Also, I understand that bat guano may be hazardous after incidental contact. Is it safe to be sheltering bats, especially in proximity to one’s home / living area?

      The short answer is yes it is safe. I wouldn’t move it for a few seasons; attaching to buildings often is very successful. If you get a bunch of bats, they will splatter dropping on the siding around the house. On occasion a young one won’t survive and you’ll find it on the ground below the bat house. As long as everyone in the house knows not to play with wild animals/downed bats, you won’t have a problem. The guano is possibly hazardous if it is in large quantities and disturbed after many years; you will never have this scenario with a backyard bat house.    A quick video we helped create with Merlin Tuttle recently is right along your lines here: https://youtu.be/b7HUsWkefmo   Please see my general bat house manual All About Bat Houses here: https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals   A few articles on COVID and a few older heath articles are here: https://batmanagement.com/blogs/human-and-bat-health  

    • What is the best bat house for Tucson, AZ?

      For summer use I suggest mounting a bat house in -full shade- in your area. Probably any color is good; just keep in mind it really must be in full shade all day. Best bat houses in your area face northeast or east. No bat house works on poles in your area, but rather must be installed on buildings or other large structures.   You might try a second bat house on a different side of building, as keeping a few bats around in winter might require another bat house in a different location. Perhaps a location that gets a few hours of direct morning sun and then is shaded. This gives bats some options and by watching where they go you will learn what they are looking for in your local area. You have the Western pipistrelle (“Canyon bats”) and Mexican free-tail bats in Tucson year-round. Both of these -could- use buildings or bat houses year-round, most famously the free-tail bats are in certain bridges around the city and put on a good show in the summer. 

    • Is a \'day lodge\' only used for daytime resting? I want something that the bats can use for long term resting and perhaps even hibernating.

      Bat houses are ususally intended for female bats to raise young in the summer. Indeed they spend all day in the bat house, leave at dusk and return at dawn. The reality is that some may not exit any particular night, and they might start returning an hour after they leave. The same bat house that female bats raise young in when mounted in full sun, may also attract a few solitary males when mounted in the shade, or even a different species. In certain parts of the country, you could have bats year-round in bat houses, even different species at different times of the year. If you want a wide range of bat activity, the best idea is to install several bat houses in different locations so bats have a range of microclimates to pick from. 

    • I live in Petaluma California which is southern Sonoma County. We have mild winters and two and three-quarter acre property. I’m wondering where I should place a bat house. Summers can be very hot sometimes reaching 106°F. Should I be looking for shaded area near the redwood trees in our yard or the backside of the barn on our property?

      I don’t think you can lose with the sunny side of the barn but put the bat house high enough so that the eves of the barn shade the bat house in the afternoon. Ideally you’d want it to get hit with direct sun in the morning, then shaded in the afternoon.    It is best to try multiple bat houses in different locations if trying to attract them to a new location. The DayRoost bat houses we offer are inexpensive for those kinds of experiments.
