Reviews from customers who self-installed their bat houses.
Do you live in Michigan on a large parcel of land like Kid Rock or on your own private sanctuary in Colorado. No matter what state you live in or what size property you have, you still have the insect / mosquito problem. These are just a few examples of installations by every day people that have installed their bat house after consulting with us about the best location for their new bat house installation. Proper "location is everything" when installing a bat house. Proper installation will help with pest control on a daily basis (or should I say, mightily).

Hi Phil, Our bat house is up and looks great! The house is really well built and looks fantastic – it’s a great addition to the yard. And the installation guys really liked your Easy-Up mount and brackets – they had never done a bat house before and everything went very smoothly.
Thank you for not only for making a great product but also for all of your helpful advice, guidance, and many prompt responses to questions throughout this process.
Looking forward to some bats soon! Mr.B. Thanks again, Barrington, IL.
4 Cell Deluxe Bat House Apartment Complex on Tree
Mr. J. H. Purchased a Four Cell Deluxe Apartment Complex painted green and a Wood Post mounting bracket to install his bat house on a Hugh Oak tree in his back yard.
The bat house faces southeast. Thanks to family members, they were able to mount the bat house 30 ft. up from ground level with lots of clear space above and around the house so the bats have a free flight path.
Congratulations go out to Mr. H. and his family members for all the effort they put into this bat house installation. Strafford, NH
Four Chamber Deluxe Apartment Complex Painted Kidskin
"I've seen bats flying around our yard and thought it would be fun to have a house, so I did some research on bat house manufactures before I choose your bat house for my backyard installation. I thought your houses looked to be of much better quality than others I'd seen, and all the measurements were correct. Phil was also responsive to my questions, and you also sold the brackets to mount the house so I didn't have to go to the hassle of making my own."
Mr. N lives In an area about 26 miles west of Fort Worth Texas that gets very hot, 95 to over 100̊ in mid summer, so he choose our new light paint shade, (Kidskin) a light tan. He also purchased our single pole mounting bracket to install his bat house on. He was fortunate enough to have an old flagpole mast to install the new house on. A 20' above ground level pole worked just fine for Mr. N.
The day Mr. N. decided to install his new bat house it was 65 degrees, not a hot day in Texas but a nice day to be outside so he and two of his friends went to work and by days end the house was up and ready for tenets next spring.
Nice job Mr. C.N. Southlake, Texas.
3 Cell Self-Installed Bat Houses
3 cell, painted black, single unit pole mounting bracket, easy-up-bracket
Hi Phil, Our bat house is up and awaiting occupants! Here's a photo you may use for your website. My 1-3rd grade students just loved studying bats. Our unit include a visit from the curator of mammals from the Field Museum of Natural History. The grand finale was helping to dig the hole and pour the concrete for the bat house pole. (Next fall we'll create a sign to explain its purpose.) Hope you're enjoying some nice weather. Best, Karen, Chiaravalle Montessori School, Evanston, Il.
3 Chamber. Natural finish. No brackets
"I received the bat house the other day and have already stained it with a medium/dark water-based stain. I am very impressed with the quality of the house, the workmanship and attention to detail. If this house doesn't become inhabited it will be a true shame as any bat would be proud to call this home."
"Even more so, I am impressed with the informational packet you included and the personalized letter on top of that. It is very nice to obtain a product that is not mass produced and have a creator behind it that cares about their work."
"Is there a place that I can leave a review for you? These days, internet reviews seem to be a significant factor in purchase decisions and being your product is not on a major website like Amazon I was curious if there is some other source of referral that would benefit your future sales. Chris G., Babylon, NY
3 Chamber, Painted Black, Copper Roofing, Mounting Bracket & Easy-Up-Bracket
"Hi Phil, Here is a photo of our new bat house located in a field of wildflowers and close to 2 creeks. We just love the bat house, great construction. The easy up bracket and mounting bracket made our job so very easy. Thank you again for a great product! "Stacey, Williston, VT.
3 Cell Deluxe Nursery Bat House on Light Pole
Mr. M. S. Chose to purchase a Triple Cell Deluxe Nursery bat house and installed it on a light pole 20 ft. above ground level behind his workshop. It is painted black and faces southeast. Nice job Mr. S. Highland, MI
3 Chamber Nursery Bat House on Pole
Mrs. L.N. and family decided to purchase a Triple Chamber Nursery bat house painted black. They also knew why and where they would put the bat house up, so they bought a single pole mounting bracket to erect their new bat house on a pole in their back yard where that bat house would get full sun and the bats would have free flight. Nice clear open area for the bats. Great choice Mrs. N. Oakdale, MH
Three Chamber, Black Paint, Pole Bracket
"Hi Phil, We loved our experience with BatsBirdsYards.com, the free shipping was great, the communication when we had questions was great, they are BCI certified and seem to really know what they are doing to make sure the bat house you put up is going to be beneficial and likely to be used. We have no bats yet but I feel very confident that we have the information we need to properly care for our bat house into the future with our BatsBirdsYards house. The instructions they included were great, although the easy up pole probably would have make our lives easier for mounting on a steel pole we installed. Can't wait to see if we have any visitors for next summer! Thanks", Kate & Andrew, Westerville, Ohio
3 Cell Bat House on Pole
Mr. K. is a custom home builder. Ever since he built his own personal home in South Lyon he has had an issue with bats wanting to take up residence in his house during and after construction. The property has a nice large pond at the edge of a most gracious landscaped yard, which makes for a perfect setting for bat habitat.
Mr. K. purchased a Three Cell unfinished bat house and painted it black. He had a pretty good idea where he wanted his bat house, but not sure. So after a conversation with us, he made his final decision on a location and how he would install his new bat house. The bat house faces due South for full sun exposure.
Within 4 weeks of Mr. K. installing a bat exclusion unit on his home, and installing the bat house, we received an email from Mr. K. that the bats have a new zip code and have taken up residency in the new bat house. Looks like you made a great choice for the location of your bat house. Nice job Mr. K. South Lyon, MI
3 Chamber Bat Houses with Wall Mounting Bracket. Single Chamber on Wood Post
"I hung the new three chamber bat house today using the building brackets that you recommended. The brackets are very simple, sturdy and made the installation much easier. I like how the brackets keep the bat house away from the house and they look good too. I have attached photos of the new 3-chamber and the single chamber that I put on a pole a couple of weeks ago. At the moment, I have one little brown bat who is living in the single chamber. Thanks again." Greg, Morrisville, NC

Mrs. M. from New York state purchased (2) Three chamber bat houses painted black, with copper roof. She also purchased our Back-to-Back mounting bracket and our new Easy-Up Swivel Pole Bracket. She had them installed at her vacation home in NC.
2 Cell Self-Installed Bat Houses
Double Chamber, Painted Dark Green, Copper Roof, Wall Bracket
Hi Phil, The bat house looks great. I am glad I bought the wall bracket, it made the mounting pretty simple. Also love the copper roof. The bat landing area is about 13 feet off the ground and the top of the house is over 15 feet off the ground. There is about a 35-40 feet radius open area from the South wall/bat house to the woods. Here's hoping that they find it! Jim, Indianapolis, IN.
2 Cell Deluxe Clubhouse on Wall
Mrs. W. is a Do-it yourself type of person, so she bought a Two Cell Deluxe Clubhouse, with a natural finish.
She painted it a dark brown and installed it on the wall of a structure in her yard so it gets full sun.
Notice the overhang of the roof, added protection from all the rain that they get in OR. You did a fine job Ann. Hillsboro, OR
Single Cell Self-Installed Bat Houses

Finally got the bat house up today. We love the quality of your work. We hope our bats will to. Thanks Phil for stopping over to show us where the best location would be for us to install the bat house. Rich & Jen, Waterford, Mi.
