Florida bonneted bats prefer small harem families and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. Since it is located in the southern half of Florida, this single chamber bat house will get plenty warm enough to sustain bonneted bats year-round. If targeting bonneted bats, mount 15' or more above ground in as wide open a space as possible. Of course, other species may use this bat house as well, particularly Mexican\/Brazilian free tails and big brown bats found around all the Gulf Coast states and NM, AZ, and low elevations of CA. \u003cem\u003eFurther north we suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building.\u003c\/em\u003e Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates. Because of the low cost and easy mounting, several DayRoost bat houses are perfect to place in several locations around your property, with somewhat different solar exposures. \u003cem\u003eThis dramatically increases the chances of initially training bats to a bat house and discovering what exposure your local bats are looking for.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eOur decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eEach interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best \"batholds\" possible.

Florida bonneted bats prefer small harem families and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. Since it is located in the southern half of Florida, this single chamber bat house will get plenty warm enough to sustain bonneted bats year-round. If targeting bonneted bats, mount 15' or more above ground in as wide open a space as possible. Of course, other species may use this bat house as well, particularly Mexican\/Brazilian free tails and big brown bats found around all the Gulf Coast states and NM, AZ, and low elevations of CA. \u003cem\u003eFurther north we suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building.\u003c\/em\u003e Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates. Because of the low cost and easy mounting, several DayRoost bat houses are perfect to place in several locations around your property, with somewhat different solar exposures. \u003cem\u003eThis dramatically increases the chances of initially training bats to a bat house and discovering what exposure your local bats are looking for.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eOur decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eEach interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best \"batholds\" possible.

Our DayRoost Bat House Kit saves you the bother of dealing with large sheets of plywood, painstaking roughening, and gathering some supplies. All parts are ready for assembly. Included in this kit are: an assembly manual, painting instructions for your locality, 2 sides, roughened yellow pine front and back, screws, black recycled plastic roof, roof block, and construction adhesive.

Our DayRoost Bat House is suitable for mounting on buildings anywhere in North America, warm climates, the Gulf Coast states, and especially if targeting the federally endangered Florida bonneted bat in the south half of Florida. Handmade in Pennsylvania by BCM, this is a very solid plywood bat house with a virtually indestructible recycled black plastic roof.

  • Assembles in ~15 minutes, then paint and hang!
  • Single Chamber - mount on buildings for best results
  • 1/2'' Recycled plastic roof - unbeatable durability
  • Interior permanently roughened in random directions, better for bats!
  • 1/2'' Exterior Plywood 
  • Experiment with multiple DayRoosts and attract bats into a new area
  • Perfect for a low cost, very solid bat house, made in USA
  • Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation

This single chamber bat house is designed with the Florida bonneted bat in mind, but over a dozen species in North America might make our DayRoost their home. Florida bonneted bats prefer small harem families and may not take advantage of large multi-chamber bat houses. Since it is located in the southern half of Florida, this single chamber bat house will get plenty warm enough to sustain bonneted bats year-round. If targeting bonneted bats, mount 15' or more above ground in as wide open a space as possible. Of course, other species may use this bat house as well, particularly Mexican/Brazilian free tails and big brown bats found around all the Gulf Coast states and NM, AZ, and low elevations of CA. Further north we suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building. Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates. Because of the low cost and easy mounting, several DayRoost bat houses are perfect to place in several locations around your property, with somewhat different solar exposures. This dramatically increases the chances of initially training bats to a bat house and discovering what exposure your local bats are looking for.

Our decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.

Each interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best "batholds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups have been documented becoming trapped under it. The finished box requires exterior paint or stain to complete. We have Mount Kits available for attaching this bat house to a post, siding, or brick/stone which will add another chamber of roost space.

Assembling with a child? We suggest helping squeeze the caulking gun. When drilling, it may be best for the adult to start each screw partway into the wood, then letting Junior squeeze the drill trigger and set the screw.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask BCM a Question
    • Is the siding mount kit appropriate for vinyl siding? How far up should I mount the bat houses? The south/west facing wall on my house is next to my driveway. Thank you!! Excited to get these kits and give some bats a good home.

      Hi please check out All About Bats as there are some pros and cons to mounting on a building. Might get droppings on a parked car which will damage the finish over time. The bottom of the bat house should be 10' or more above ground. If you are in a hot climate, it could go almost under the eves so it is shaded in the hot afternoon. If in a cool climate, don't put it up so high under the eves. https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals Thanks!

    • Hello, we live in the city of Virginia Beach. My son wants to put up a bat box, but I’m not sure we have the right space. Would bats want to use it if we put it high on the side of our house?

      Mounting on buildings can be very successfull, and is the best place for a small bat house. I would not mount directly over a window, or directly over a walkway. For more mounting pros and cons see our All About Bat Houses manual: https://batmanagement.com/pages/manuals

    • We live in upsate New York. Can I mount this on a pole instead of on a building? The "pole mount" link above isn't working. Thanks for any help!!

      A single chamber bat house like this will be more successful mounted on a building. It takes advantage of the thermal mass/heat of the building. 
       
      However, you have big brown bats in your area that actually like it cooler than some other species. So, If going on a post give it a shot! I would paint the bat house black, and still put another on a building in the sun, and see what happens.
