BCM Bat House Duplex w/Shade Roof

Product Description

Take your backyard bat roost to the next level.

The BCM Bat House Duplex is the newest addition to our line of bat house options, utilizing a custom variation our popular 4-Chamber bat house that maximizes roosting opportunities for nearby bats. Using a back-to-back bat house configuration, the Duplex is specially constructed to allow 2 of our 4-Chamber Universal bat houses to be mounted on a single post, while simultaneously turning the negative space between the houses into viable roosting area. The bat houses feature slots in the backs allowing bats to move into various sized crevices in the middle of the structure, or switch roost boxes to find their preferred microclimate. This configuration may hold approximately ~600 bats!

Bats often prefer roosting in larger structures, which can help buffer nighttime temperature extremes, as well as heat up faster in the morning. The Modular Bat Roost provides this in both size, style, and most importantly, function.

The Shade Roof version. This model incorporates a shade roof for warm climates. The shade roof does not touch the actual roof of the bat houses. Bat houses receive heat from the sun in the morning and evening, but are shaded during the hottest part of the day. This design is highly successful in all the Gulf Coast states as well as low elevations in the West. If you are located north of the Gulf Coast states, you probably should consider our Bat House Duplex with Aluminum Roof so that the bat houses soak up as much heat as possible.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • How can I prevent predators from perching on the roof?

    Should this be a problem there are many anti-bird perching devices that could be attached to the roof to deter this. Seach for "bird spikes" on Amazon to start. If a nest forms, knock it down while it's still in the building stage. If you get a large number of bats, birds of prey will eventually notice and may arrive for the emergence and perch anywhere nearby within sight of the bat house. This is common at very large colonies across the southern US. The number of bats natural predators such as snakes and raptors tke will not cause a colony collapse. However, we want to be careful not to give the predators an unfair advantage.
