Super Duplex Bat House
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
What are the dimensions of the center baffle cluster, what type of wood is it, and how many are there? I'm looking at the Super Duplex install manual (Step 3), and that is the only part that isn't clear to me. I recently received the two ColonyLodge bat houses and would like to create the Super Duplex. Thanks!
The center baffle cluster is overall 17.5'' tall x11'' wide x5'' deep made from 3/8 plywood heavily scratched on both sides and 3/4'' spacers. We actually have a 1'' gap in the middle of these baffles as well, with the spacers on the ends. Once you put the framing on your 4x6 posts and have that laid out on sawhorses, you will see the void in the middle of the posts that needs filled and essentially cut to fit. Thanks and be sure to send photos of your build and install to BCM's Facebook https://www.facebook.com/batmanagement

Either color may work. Bats may not use the bat house if the barn is easily accessible to them however, and it may take several seasons for some to move in.
