Gallery: Artificial Roosts for Mitigation and Large Colonies

We have been involved with large scale artificial roosts for bats since the mid-1990's when BCM President John Chenger assisted with building a number of 8'x8' Bat Condos during his time with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. That design today is still appropriate as a replacement roost in northern latitudes and high elevations. In Gulf Coast states and low elevations in the West, Mini Condos with open bottoms will better accommodate Mexican free tail bats. We encourage smaller, less expensive roosts with long life expectancy such as our Modular Roost Kits and Super Rocket Roosts, especially where distributing a big colony across many smaller structures makes sense to protect from a catastrophic roost failure.
Note: some photos are of structures that represent early evolutions of what we are building today.
