QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
Would the DayRoost - Single Chamber bat house be suitable for the types of bats we get in southern Ontario? (hoary bat, the eastern red bat, the silver-haired bat, the big brown bat, the tricolored bat, the little brown myotis bat, the northern long-eared myotis and the eastern small-footed myotis.)
Of all those only the big brown, little brown, Northern long ear, and maybe the tricolored bats are known to use artificial roosts such as bat houses. Any of the bat houses we sell might attract those species, but there is not guarantee with wildlife and it may take a few seasons before there is any activity. I would recommend mounting a single chamber bat house on a building for best chance, preferably one on the full sun side and perhaps one on the side that gets morning sun, then is shaded in afternoon.
I plan on a ColonyLodge unit for a Christmas present and thought I should have a second non-maternity type bat house for a bachelor pad on the back side. Is this a good thing to plan? If so, what do I need to buy for that purpose? A Day Roost?
There is no specific bat house for bachelors and they roost literally anywhere. The purpose of bat houses are primarily for females to raise young. The recommended approach is to install several bat houses in various solar exposures in an area. Direct morning sun is a must-have, and full day sun is also good. Your local bats will select what they need, and they may use all of the bat houses just at different times of the year. If you end up with a bad placement, such as trees shade out a bat house, you might get some bachelors in it, but they probably don’t “need” it. Back-to-back bat houses are generally more successful than a single bat house, probably because that configuration offers some different compartments to split up socially, and different temperatures. Honestly any bat house on the backside of another may be useful; there is no set rules in that area.
Can a bat house on a post be placed in a wooded area?
If you are in a warm climate, the Gulf Coast states for example, you may get Mexican free tails or Southeastern bats at various times of the year. If you are in a northern or high elevation climate, the bat house needs ~6 or more hours of -direct- morning sun to be warm enough for bats to consider using it. It may take several seasons for bats to use it, so patience is key. -JC
if we find we don't need the mounting kit can we return it for a refund?
Yes if returned within 30 days of purchase. Shipping is mot refundable.
what kind of paint should be used to paint the bat house? thanks!
Any exterior paint or stain is fine; whatever your hardware store recommends for outdoor plywood. You can also use black spray paint to spray intto the bottom of the bat house just to darken it down. Also can spray the edges of the mounts and Perch Panel for asthetics. Remember to re-scratch the landing area AND the rear of the bat house around the rear vent with a utility knife after painting, as thick paint will fill in the grooves.
