QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • I just moved to Luray VA 22835. I successfully excluded a large colony of big browns 11 years ago, before I began my home renovation so the colony of bats moved into two back to back bat houses I provided. Problem with a pup catcher is the houses are on a 21' tall metal pole. How can a pup catcher get installed on a metal pole?, the basket would be unsupported. If I could find where to buy the mesh, I could make something to staple to the bat houses.

    Hello - you could find an appropriate sized U bolt from a hardware store that fits around the metal pole, then the lower basket would be attached to that or a wood spacer. The pup catcher should only be installed if there is a problem; otherwise it makes an attractive predator perch. Problems with pups falling out typically are from overheating; you might consider drilling numerous vents 1/3 up from the bottom around the bat house to improve airflow.

  • I live in Reston, VA. I'm interested in a bat house and installation - but I'd prefer mounting to the side of my house rather than a pole. Can someone please advise?

    Hi - Check out our Resources and Free Advice link at the top of our pages. In the Bat Roosts section, the pertiant articles are How to Mount on Stonework and Mounting on Buildings vs. Posts. Email us if you have more questions.

  • How many houses would you recommend on a 20 acre property?

    Hello I would start out with a few bat houses in different locations, possibly even a mixture of Super Rocket Roosts and 4 Chamber Universal bat houses. This gives bats a variety of option and essentially lets the local bats reveal their needs to you.

  • Hello, If I can find some neighbors who also want bat houses installed, can we split the travel cost? I live in Greenbelt MD, which is just around 100 miles away . Thanks for thinking with me!

    Yes, unless we are unable to install all of them in a day. We should be able to install 3, perhaps 4 a day, especially if the soil is easy digging!

  • Hello, we are interested in purchasing a bat house from your company and also potentially in having it installed. We live approximately 120 miles from Carlisle, PA in Manassas, VA. Would we be able to get installation services from BCM given that we are just outside the 100 mile radius? If not, are there any companies in our area that you would recommend for installation? We would like to get professional advice as to the best position on our property to install our house. Thank you for your help.

    Hello- we will install bat houses at your location no problem. Ideally you want a location that receives all day direct sunlight if possible, or at least 6 hours or more of morning sun. Feel free to request a quote for installation email jchenger@batmanagement.com

  • Hi -- I am in Allentown, PA. I am sure I have bats near my house. Years ago, I got a bat house (hanging on my front porch, where I see bats), but I've never seen a bat in it. It could be a bad design AND/OR a bad location. I would love to have some working bat houses on my property, whether attached to the house, or on poles. I know there are different kinds of bats, so that also might be a variable in what kind of success rate there is. If there is a good chance of helping bats, I'd be willing to try it.

    See our resources on bat houses here: https://batmanagement.com/blogs/bat-roosts as one article specifically deals with why bat houses fail. You might be able to refurbish the one you have (caulk around the roof, paint it black, rehang in a very sunny location, scratch up the landing pad and any baffles you can reach).

    The Super Rocket Roost https://batmanagement.com/products/bcm-super-rocket-roost
    and the Universal 4 Chamber https://batmanagement.com/products/universal-four-chamber-premium-bat-house both have a variety of crevice types that would be attractive to big brown and little brown bats in your area. Either should be placed in full all day sun in your area if possible.
