I don’t have any trees in my yard, I live in an urban area of Jeffersonville IN, but I would love to build a bat house. I do have an area that gets about 8 hrs of sunlight. What type of pole and how tall should it be if I were going to install a bat house on it? Do you, or can you recommend any kits?
Hello - I recommend a 4''x6'' x 16' treated post, it should be $50 or less from a local lumber yard (Lowes/Home Depot doesn't carry that length). Add a post protector to extend the life of the post. https://batmanagement.com/products/post-protector-4-in-x-6-in-x-42-in Also at the lumber yard will be 60 lb bags of concrete mix for $4 a bag, you may want 2 bags. A 3' deep hole that isn't much bigger than the post will use all the concrete, if the hole is a little big, add a few rocks. More info installing is in our manual with the bat houses and also in our learning center: https://batmanagement.com/blogs/bat-roosts and also some videos: https://batmanagement.com/pages/video-bat-house-how-tos
