Bat House Details
The single cell or chamber BCI Approved bat house is designed for use by the Male Bat, as the males do not reside with the females once they have had the pups. Male bats are creatures of seclusion (loaners). This bat house is great for a back-to-back application on a pole. It has pre-drilled mounting holes at the top and bottom of the bat house for ease of mounting. 100% Cedar Construction.
Dimensions: 29H x 16W x 2.125D inches.
Capacity: Holds Approximately 100 bats.
The triple cell or triple chamber BCI Approved bat house is designed so the females can give birth to their "one pup" in early spring and raise them during the summer months. Movement between the cells is critical for proper heat temperature while raising the pup. You can use the 4 pre-drilled mounting holes for a double unit back-to-back application on a pole where you have a large bat population or you can just set up one unit. 100% Cedar Construction.
Dimensions: 29H x 16W x 5D Capacity:
Holds Approximately 330 Bats
The five cell/chamber BCI Approved Bat house is the ultimate in a large capacity unit for colonies. Recommended for single unit pole installation. All of bat house units have 4 pre-drilled holes for easy mounting. Inspect your bat house once a year. 100% Cedar Construction
Dimensions: 29H x 19W x 7.75D inches.

Single Pole and the Back to Back mounting brackets are fabricated from 1/8" x 2" strap steel with a 3" x 3" square tube welded to the bracket arms, The sq tube has two 3/8" set screws for secure attachment to the steel pole. The 3/8" bolts eliminate the possibility of the bat house sliping down the pole and makes it very easy for you to adjust for the proper direction of the bat house so one unit faces South/Southeast and the other unit faces North/ Northwest.
The back-to-back application gives the two back-to-back bat house installation a wide range of heat temperature for the bats to chose from. We recommend only using a 2 inch schedule 40 steel pipe for the double bat house installation and the large 5 chamber installation.
The Easy-up-Swivel Mounting Bracket makes an awkward and sometimes difficult job easy, when you install it directly over the top of the 2" pipe you have cemented in the ground. It will fit directly over the top of your 1 1/4", 1 1/2" or 2 " steel pipe that you have placed in the ground. Do not use a pipe any smaller then the 2" I.D. pipe for the back to back installations.
The Easy-Up Bracket allows for easy raising and lowering of your bat house so you can make yearly inspections and provide maintenance as may be required. It is constructed from 3"x3"x 3/16" inch tubular steel and precision machined to accommodate the swivel pipe attachment. The Easy-Up Bracket will not fit over a pipe larger than 2" I.D. = 2 3/8" OD All hardware and installation instructions included with the purchase of the bracket. All mounting brackets have a POWDER COAT FINISH on them for the ultimate in protection against the elements.
Recommendations for Yearly Inspections and Maintenance:
- Inspect your bat house yearly for unwanted house guest such as mud dopers, hornets or wasps.
- Check for cracks in the wood and repair as required.
- Install a fresh coat of paint or stain as needed.
- Make sure your houses are facing the proper direction for the best sun exposure.
- Make sure you keep all trees in the area away from your houses a minimum of 25'
- Make sure you install your houses on two 10' sections (20 ft x 2") I.D. schedule 40 steel pipe that has threads at both ends.
