I live in Petaluma California which is southern Sonoma County. We have mild winters and two and three-quarter acre property. I’m wondering where I should place a bat house. Summers can be very hot sometimes reaching 106°F. Should I be looking for shaded area near the redwood trees in our yard or the backside of the barn on our property?
I don’t think you can lose with the sunny side of the barn but put the bat house high enough so that the eves of the barn shade the bat house in the afternoon. Ideally you’d want it to get hit with direct sun in the morning, then shaded in the afternoon. It is best to try multiple bat houses in different locations if trying to attract them to a new location. The DayRoost bat houses we offer are inexpensive for those kinds of experiments.
