2 Double Chamber on One Pole and 2 Triple Chamber on Another Pole

Mr. S. from New Mexico contacted me in late Jan of 2021 about installing some bat houses at his summer home in Lake Ann, Mi. when weather permits in June or July. After numerous emails back and forth, I agreed with MR.S. on the selection of location for the installation of two poles with four bat house. The poles were to be placed on an old section of railroad bed that ran alongside the lake; it was abandon in the late 1800 (so we didn't have to worry about trains). We decided on installing two double chamber houses on one 20 ft steel pole and two triple chamber houses on the second 20 ft steel pole.

We installed two 20'sections of 2 3/8" schedule 40 steel pipe painted black, two Secure EZ-up Brackets, two double cell bat house and two triple cell bat house. All of the houses were painted Hunter Green.

Job went well with the terrain being all sand. The poles are about 100' above grade level of the lake on a flat area where the railroad tracks once laid. Area gets about 5 to 6 hours of daily sun.

Bat Shelter Complex Installation

2 Single Chamber - 2 Three Chamber - 1 Five chamber

I received an email from Mr. F. asking if we would come out and take a look at his property for some Bat House. On 3/29/21 I meet him at his home to review the layout of his property. We both agreed that the Bat House Shelter Complex would work great for what he was looking to achieve.

We installed 5 bat houses on three 2 3/8" O.D. steel pipes with our Easy-up-Brackets and proper pole mounting brackets. The poles were spaced roughly 125' to 150' away from each other. We installed a different color of stain on each house to see if the light and dark colors would have a bearing on heat within the houses and have any bearing on the occupancy.

Unknown to us Mr. F was taken a video of us installing one of the poles with two three cell units.

Bat Shelter Complex Installation

2 Single Chamber - 2 Three Chamber - 1 Five chamber

I received a phone call from Mr. S. on Friday in late Oct 2020 about looking at his water front property located in 'HELL, MI'. He was interested in having some bat houses installed possibly. So on Sat morning we planned to meet for me to look at his property.

When I arrived Mike and I walked his property that was located right on a private lake. We wanted to see what options we had for installing some Bat Houses. He was interested in an alternative way to control the mosquitos issue without using pesticides.

After careful consideration as to how the 6/7 acres of property was located to the lake I decided that this would be an ideal location to install our Bat Shelter Complex as his house was right on the lake with a great patio up close to the lake so they could enjoy the beautiful view of the sunset during the summer months.

The patio is laid out in such a way that you are up close to the two to three acres of property that is acutely lake water frontage. So after our review with Mike he gave me the OK to proceed with the installation of the Bat Shelter Complex.

We installed all of the houses on 2 3/8" steel poles set in concrete and the Easy-up-Bracket mounted to the pole in the ground. All bat houses where attached to the steel pole with our Back to Back brackets and the single pole bracket. We installed a total of 5 bat houses on the separate three poles. All houses were stained black.

Ms. M. contacted us in late Oct 2020 about getting an inspection on her property. So, with the weather headed towards winter we had to act fast.

"BBY LLC responded quickly to my email inquiry and were out the same week to look at my yard and identify the best spots to install the bat houses. The work was done within the next week and both the bat houses and the poles look nice and blend in with the existing landscaping. Phil answered all my questions and was polite and professional from start to finish - I am very happy with the work and and am looking forward to welcoming these amazing creatures to their new homes - hopefully next Summer. Thanks Phil, for a nice job." Amy M., Holt MI., 10-31-20

We installed 0ne Single chamber & One triple chamber facing South/Southeast. Both are painted Hunters Green. We used our Single pole mounting bracket and the Easy-up-Swivel Bracket for the pole and bat house Installation. The houses were set at the edge of Ms. M. wild flower garden which will draw bugs for the bats dinner.

Mr. Stefan K. from Brighton, Mi. contacted me about looking at his property up north in Houghton Lk., MI. about installing some Bat Houses. We had already installed two at his residence in Brighton. So I headed up north one day to look at his property deep in the woods of northern Mi. and made a determination that two houses would work out just fine for his little piece of paradise up north. We installed one Single Chamber and one Triple Chamber. Both were painted Dark Green and installed on 2 3/8" black steel pipe with our Single pole mounting bracket and the Easy-up-Swivel Bracket. The installation went just fine without any trees close by and a source of water in an wide open area of the property so the bats would be able to get a drink when need be. A great location for hunting Mosquitoes at dinner time.

"Thanks Phil. Great location for the houses." Stefan K., Houghton Lk., MI., 8-21-19

Installation of Bat Shelter Complex

The Bat Shelter Complex contains: 2 Single Chambers, 2 Three Chambers, 1 Five Chamber, 2 Back-to-back Mounting Brackets, 1 Single Pole Mounting Bracket


On or about 7/21/19 I received an email from Mr. D. about a BIG problem he was having with bats in his house. He thought he wanted some bat houses installed with the hopes of the bats taking up residence in them instead of his home.

Tad lives in Fennville, Mi. about 172 miles from our shop and he wanted to know if we would be willing to travel that far. I told him we can come out on an inspection but there would be an inspection service fee that is refundable back to him if we do the work. He was quite willing to have us come out so we set up a day 7/29/19 for us to meet.

Once I got to Tad’s home he showed me where the bats were going in and out of an overhang at the first story level at the soffit area of the home. He already contacted someone to do the repair work on the house once he was sure all the bats have gone for the winter. I proceeded to inspect his property, about 3 acres of nice clear land with only his house and a few trees.

I told him he had a great location to install the Bat Shelter Complex because he had no tall trees to deal with and just a few large evergreens on the property. Tad once again confirmed that he wants the bats to stay around, so if this is what it takes to make the bats happy then he wants it done. He had already looked at the Bat Shelter Complex on our website so he was familiar with it.

A nearby neighbor has a large pond so water was not an issue, and without tall dense trees this will work out just fine. I gave him the price for the Bat Shelter Complex installation and he asked me when we could do the work. I told him we could be back out in a couple three weeks once he placed his order. All houses were stained a dark gray.

Thanks Phil! looks great. I hope the bats will like them. Tad D., Fennville, MI., 8/19/19
