Bat House Mount Kit - for wood posts & siding

Product Description

Setup made Easy.

The Bat House Mount Kit makes mounting your bat house to a wood post or siding of a building quick and easy! The main purpose of this mount is to provide provide the proper amount of support when used with a narrow post. Secondly, 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 go even a step further by making the rear vent just wide enough for bats to exit the bat house, and occupy the space between the mounting surface and bat house! We include a "Perch Panel" that can be attached to your post which provides protection against predators, while increasing the roost space to accomodate ~32 bats.

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. If planning to attach the bat house to a wide, flat structure, we still recommended using spacers between the box and structure to create the cooling off roost space behind the bat house. Lag bolts may not be appropriate for your mounting surface, you may consider 3'' deck or metal screws, or some other fastener depending on your situation. To mount on brick or stone, use a hammer drill and 1/4''x3'' Tapcon concrete screws available locally, which will include the proper drill bit. 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: 

  • DreamRoost and DreamRoost Kit
  • 3-Chamber Wooden Bat House and Kit
  • Four-Chamber Universal Bat House
  • Single Chamber Bat House

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

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.
