If a bat house is placed directly on a flat structure or post, this feature is defeated as the structure will seal off the vent. The mount provides space so that the rear vent may perform as intended. We include a \"Perch Panel\" that can be attached to your wood post which provides protection against predators, while increasing the roost space to accommodate ~32 bats. Perch Panels are not needed when mounting to brick or stone, as those surfaces are already rough enough for bats to roost on. Three variations are available, choose the option most appropriate for your mounting surface:\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWood Post Mount Kit:\u003c\/strong\u003e This pressure treated mount is pre-drilled for lag bolts, cut to size, and includes (4) 3\/8''x3'' lag bolts for mounting to a wood post.

Because stone is irregular it can be a challenge to find mount points, extra anchors are already provided. No Perch Panel is necessary as bats easily can roost on the rough stone and brick in the space behind the bat house our kits create. Anchors are rated over 600 lbs. pull out strength in brick and must be embedded at least 1''. A hammer drill must be used to drill the pilot holes. \u003cem\u003eNOTE: one masonry bit will drill a large number of holes; multiple kits on the same order may not include a bit for every kit.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTE: Two slightly different sizes are for the ColonyLodge and the DayLodge\/DayRoost series; please be sure to choose the matching mount!\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWhat about mounting to a tree?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e While we do not recommend mounting to a tree (it may be too shaded in some regions or provide easy access for predators), we recognize sometimes an existing tree is the best option. The best kit for tree mounting is the Wood Post Kit because of the countersunk holes. T\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003ehe lag bolts that come with the Wood Post Kit are galvanized and could hurt (or even kill) the tree over time. We suggest you obtain stainless steel lag bolts locally (these are least likely to harm the tree) and only use two - 3\/8 x 3.5’' bolts instead of the 4 bolts we normally use for a post. The tree's irregular shape will probably only allow one bolt in each the Upper and Lower bracket and fewer bolts is less likely to harm the tree.

Bat House Mounting Made Easy.

Our Bat House Mount Kit makes mounting your bat house to a wood post, building, or other structure quick and easy! Two slightly different sizes are for the ColonyLodge and the DayLodge/DayRoost series; please be sure to choose the matching mount! The purpose of this mount is to:

  • Provide provide the proper amount of support when used with a relatively narrow wood post.
  • Provide space behind the bat house for the rear vent to function as intended.
  • Provides an extra roost crevice -behind- the bat house for hot days, and is particularly effective when mounted on a building.
  • Reduces guano/urine staining on a building.
  • Greatly simplify installing on irregular stone or brick.

Our bat houses feature a rear vent / exit to help keeps bats cooler on hot days. If a bat house is placed directly on a flat structure or post, this feature is defeated as the structure will seal off the vent. The mount provides space so that the rear vent may perform as intended. We include a "Perch Panel" that can be attached to your wood post which provides protection against predators, while increasing the roost space to accommodate ~32 bats. Perch Panels are not needed when mounting to brick or stone, as those surfaces are already rough enough for bats to roost on. Three variations are available, choose the option most appropriate for your mounting surface:

  • Wood Post Mount Kit: This pressure treated mount is pre-drilled for lag bolts, cut to size, and includes (4) 3/8''x3'' lag bolts for mounting to a wood post. Includes a "Perch Panel" intended to be installed on your wood post creating more roost space. Kit includes pre-drilled Upper Mount, Lower Mount, bolts, washers, Perch Panel, and screws for the Perch Panel.

  • Siding Mount Kit: This is intended for vinyl, metal, and wood siding. Eight  (8) exterior grade coated screws 3'' long are included and intended to screw into wood material behind your siding. A Perch Panel is included as your siding is likely too smooth for bats to grip. Includes a pressure treated Upper and Lower Mount, (4) 3'' exterior screws, Perch Panel, and (3) 2'' exterior screws for the Perch Panel.

  • Back/Stone Mount Kit: This kit includes pressure treated Upper and Lower Mounts. Hardware includes six (6) - 3/16'' x 3 1/4'' long concrete screws and one 5/32'' masonry bit to drill into stone, brick, or block. Because stone is irregular it can be a challenge to find mount points, extra anchors are already provided. No Perch Panel is necessary as bats easily can roost on the rough stone and brick in the space behind the bat house our kits create. Anchors are rated over 600 lbs. pull out strength in brick and must be embedded at least 1''. A hammer drill must be used to drill the pilot holes. NOTE: one masonry bit will drill a large number of holes; multiple kits on the same order may not include a bit for every kit.


NOTE: Two slightly different sizes are for the ColonyLodge and the DayLodge/DayRoost series; please be sure to choose the matching mount!

 

What about mounting to a tree?

 While we do not recommend mounting to a tree (it may be too shaded in some regions or provide easy access for predators), we recognize sometimes an existing tree is the best option. The best kit for tree mounting is the Wood Post Kit because of the countersunk holes. The lag bolts that come with the Wood Post Kit are galvanized and could hurt (or even kill) the tree over time. We suggest you obtain stainless steel lag bolts locally (these are least likely to harm the tree) and only use two - 3/8 x 3.5’' bolts instead of the 4 bolts we normally use for a post. The tree's irregular shape will probably only allow one bolt in each the Upper and Lower bracket and fewer bolts is less likely to harm the tree. While unlikely, there is no guarantee this method will not harm the tree.

Please see these articles in our Learning Center for considerations for installing on posts vs. buildings, and how to install onto stonework.

To be used with: 

Note: the bat house is NOT included with the purchase of a Mount.

You don't need this Mount Kit with the Rocket Roost, Super Rocket Roost, DreamRoost, or DreamLodge, as those bat houses have their own mounting scheme incorporated into the design. 

How size post should I use when mounting a bat house?

After 2.5'+ of the pole is cemented into the ground, the -bottom- of the bat house should be ~10' above the ground or higher. A 4''x6''x16' treated post is typical. If you live in the Gulf states, AZ, NM, and CA, you might consider an 18' or even 20' post for your Mexican free tail bats which like a little higher drop zone. The minimum length post for our bat houses is 14'. Be aware 4''x6''x16' posts are not typically stocked at big box home improvement stores, though they may special order one. Seek a local lumber yard, marine decking supply, or farm supply store.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • We want to mount a bat house on a tree, but aren’t sure what kind of mounting we need for that?

     I tend not to recommend placing bat houses on trees, there are instances where this can be successful. Generally it is hard to find a tree that allows a bat house to get enough direct sun, and some caution that predators can more easily climb/perch in trees. If you want to go with a tree, the “wood post mount kit” is most appropriate. By attaching the brackets to the Perch Panel, this keeps the brackets aligned and possible then to easily place onto a round, uneven tree.    You take a chance of weakening or even killing a tree when driving bolts into it. The mount kit includes galvanized bolts which are not appropriate for a live tree. Please replace with similar stainless steel lag bolts from a local hardware store. Typically we put 4 bolts total into the mounts into a post. If this is a live tree you might consider just putting 2 bolts in total, one in top, one in bottom, to minimize the chance of weakening the tree. -JC

  • Why do I need a post mount kit?

    The Mount Kit forms a secure connection between the narrow post and the wide bat house, and we improve on it a bit by turning the middle space into potential roost. The Mount Kit consists of 2 brackets that attach to your post, and a panel that attaches between the brackets on the post as well. The bat house then fits over all of this. All of the manuals are located here: https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals

  • For the Siding Mount - I have 6 long + 3 short (galvanized?) screws.

    Because this is a siding mount you have mounts that have no pilot holes in them, and 6 - very long deck screws. This is to fasten the 2x4 mounts to siding- try to get at least one or two screws into the framing behind the siding. Once to find a spot for a screw, you might want to pilot hole the 2x4. The location of course depends on your exact location so that’s why nothing is pre-drilled.    Three screws simply hold the perch panel to your siding; we assume it is metal or vinyl or painted wood siding, and that perch panel just gives bats something rough to roost on should they hang out on the back of the bat house. Don’t forget to take a utility knife and add a lot of scratches on the back side of the ColonyLodge in the area around the vent and where the perch panel will be.    For the latest manuals please see: https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals

  • Hi there. I'm looking into purchasing two day lodge kits, as well as two post mount kits. I'm looking to put up both houses back-to-back on a single post. Is there any recommended modification to the houses/post mount kits to allow transit between the two houses if desired?

    We can make a kit for this if desired, but the general DIY idea is: Start by installing the two post mount kits; the upper and lower mounts on both sides should be symetrical. Cut an inch off the Perch Panel to be sure there is a 1'' gap both above and below the panel. You could add more panels inside if desired, 3/4'' apart, but they should always be 1'' below the inside of the roof. Roof: add 1x (0.75'') spacers across the top and then cover with plywood and white aluminum (cool climate use brown aluminum, or black shingles. The "roof" of this center section is intentionally vented to give bats lots of options; the main bat houses should have airtight roofs. There is a rear vent on all our bat houses. scratch the back of the bat houses so it can be used as a roost, and everything in-between the two houses needs to be heavily scratched (use a utility knife.) Contact sales@batmanagement.com for questions or if you'd like us to create a kit for this configuration.
