Our Rocket Core mimics a dead tree with both \"wedge\" roost crevices and more traditional vertical baffles. This is a great choice in forest environments suitable for small colonies of a wide range of species. A 1\/4'' thick heavy-duty custom outdoor UV-resistant plastic shell protects the roost for a no maintenance roost\u003cstrong\u003e. \u003c\/strong\u003e The larger mass of the Super Rocket Roost retains heat longer into the night and provides more roost crevices for more bats.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe BCM Rocket Roost is intended to be added to an existing 4''x6''x16' treated post. Bats may land on, but never roost against the treated post. F\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eor warm climates consider installing in part (afternoon) or full shade. As with all bat houses, multiple location or roost designs can increase the chances of occupancy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThanks to \"White Nose Syndrome\" that has killed millions of bats in North America, the landscape of the bat population has changed. Rocket Roosts tend to attract small families of bats but of a wider range of species, whereas larger nursery bat houses tend to attract a large number of just a few species. Some bats prefer small roosts which end up being less obvious to predators and less prone to parasite overload. So, one bat roost does not fit all, and BCM Rocket Roosts are a great complement to nursery style bat houses especially on forest edges.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRocket boxes are highly successful and perform better than many other designs. \u003cstrong\u003eOur 4'' test units had big brown bats occupy in less than 10 days at one site, while at another location little brown bats were recorded the first time it was surveyed 45 days after installation.\u003c\/strong\u003e At one location, \u003cstrong\u003eour Super Rocket Roost had little brown bats occupying in approximately one month.\u003c\/strong\u003e Rocket Roosts are great\u003cspan\u003e for large mitigation projects were a number of long-term replacement roosts are necessary, \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ewhile being far more cost effective than other solutions\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eContents:\u003c\/strong\u003e (1) 8'' diameter, 56'' tall Super Rocket Roost with heavy-duty plastic exterior and associated hardware.

Our Rocket Core mimics a dead tree with both \"wedge\" roost crevices and more traditional vertical baffles. This is a great choice in forest environments suitable for small colonies of a wide range of species. A 1\/4'' thick heavy-duty custom outdoor UV-resistant plastic shell protects the roost for a no maintenance roost\u003cstrong\u003e. \u003c\/strong\u003e The larger mass of the Super Rocket Roost retains heat longer into the night and provides more roost crevices for more bats.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe BCM Rocket Roost is intended to be added to an existing 4''x6''x16' treated post. Bats may land on, but never roost against the treated post. F\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eor warm climates consider installing in part (afternoon) or full shade. As with all bat houses, multiple location or roost designs can increase the chances of occupancy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThanks to \"White Nose Syndrome\" that has killed millions of bats in North America, the landscape of the bat population has changed. Rocket Roosts tend to attract small families of bats but of a wider range of species, whereas larger nursery bat houses tend to attract a large number of just a few species. Some bats prefer small roosts which end up being less obvious to predators and less prone to parasite overload. So, one bat roost does not fit all, and BCM Rocket Roosts are a great complement to nursery style bat houses especially on forest edges.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRocket boxes are highly successful and perform better than many other designs. \u003cstrong\u003eOur 4'' test units had big brown bats occupy in less than 10 days at one site, while at another location little brown bats were recorded the first time it was surveyed 45 days after installation.\u003c\/strong\u003e At one location, \u003cstrong\u003eour Super Rocket Roost had little brown bats occupying in approximately one month.\u003c\/strong\u003e Rocket Roosts are great\u003cspan\u003e for large mitigation projects were a number of long-term replacement roosts are necessary, \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ewhile being far more cost effective than other solutions\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eContents:\u003c\/strong\u003e (1) 8'' diameter, 56'' tall Super Rocket Roost with heavy-duty plastic exterior and associated hardware.

We start with traditional crevices carved out of an untreated wood post, mimicking a dead tree bats are familiar with. Then a heavy-duty custom outdoor UV-resistant plastic shell protects the roost for a no maintenance roost. Designed so guano naturally falls out, so no cleaning is required. This extra tall design is vented to safely house bats even on hot summer days.\u003cstrong\u003e \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe BCM Rocket Roost can be added to a 4''x4'' post, 4''x6'' post or add a 2x4 spacer and attach to any flat surface. Available in green only; for warm climates consider installing in part (afternoon) or full shade. As with all bat houses, multiple location or roost designs can increase the chances of occupancy. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThanks to \"White Nose Syndrome\" that has killed millions of bats in North America, the landscape of the bat population has changed. Rocket Roosts tend to attract small families of bats but of a wider range of species, whereas larger nursery bat houses tend to attract a large number of just a few species. Some bats prefer small roosts which end up being less obvious to predators and less prone to parasite overload. So, one bat roost does not fit all, and BCM Rocket Roosts are a great complement to nursery style bat houses especially on forest edges.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRocket boxes are highly successful and perform better than many other designs. Our test units had big brown bats occupy in less than 10 days at one site, while at another location little brown bats were recorded the first time it was surveyed 45 days after installation.

successful design. We start with traditional crevices carved out of an untreated wood post, mimicking a dead tree bats are familiar with. Then a heavy-duty custom outdoor UV-resistant plastic shell protects the roost for a no maintenance roost. Designed so guano naturally falls out, so no cleaning is required. This extra tall design is vented to safely house bats even on hot summer days.\u003cstrong\u003e \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe BCM Rocket Roost can be added to a 4''x4'' post, 4''x6'' post or add a 2x4 spacer and attach to any flat surface. Available in green only; for warm climates consider installing in part (afternoon) or full shade. As with all bat houses, multiple location or roost designs can increase the chances of occupancy. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThanks to \"White Nose Syndrome\" that has killed millions of bats in North America, the landscape of the bat population has changed. Rocket Roosts tend to attract small families of bats but of a wider range of species, whereas larger nursery bat houses tend to attract a large number of just a few species. Some bats prefer small roosts which end up being less obvious to predators and less prone to parasite overload. So, one bat roost does not fit all, and BCM Rocket Roosts are a great complement to nursery style bat houses especially on forest edges.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRocket boxes are highly successful and perform better than many other designs. Our test units had big brown bats occupy in less than 10 days at one site, while at another location little brown bats were recorded the first time it was surveyed 45 days after installation.
