DayLodge - DIY Kit - Triple Chamber, Plywood

Product Description

DayLodge DIY Kit arrives with pre-cut and pre-roughened parts, screws, adhesive, asphalt shingle, and mounting screws (however, the same bat house is available assembled) for those looking to speed up their bat house project. Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation

The DayLodge features a very strong, and very simple roof construction that creates a super solid bat house that will last many, many years. It is capped by a solid piece of 1/2'' thick recycled plastic lumber, and will last decades. It is suitable for kids ~8 and up with supervision, workshops, school projects, scout projects, or anyone wishing to build their own solid, modern bat house without fabricating parts. This is the easiest to assemble 3 chamber bat house BCM has offered. 

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. 

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. Standard size caulking gun
  3. Utility knife (refresh bat holds after painting).
  4. Cordless drill, Phillips bit, 8mm socket tip (or 8mm socket wrench)
  5. 1/4'' drill bit to help start the 6'' long TimberLOK mounting screws straight 
  6. 1/8'' drill bit (optional, to slightly predrill holes to help young kids assemble)
  7. 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. 

 

In the Box of a DayLodge DIY Kit: 

  1. DayLodge parts: front, back, sides, 2 roost panels, recycled plastic roof, roof block, 35 screws (min), 1-tube adhesive caulking
  2. (2) 6'' TimberLOK mounting screws
  3. (3) 1-1/2'' exterior mounting screws
  4. Manual

Our DayLodge bat house is based on a tried and true design suitable across all of North America. 

  • 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 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.

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.
