Bats land on grey landing pad and climb up into chambers. Bat Bungalows can be mounted on buildings or poles. We include mounting instructions with all orders. Mounting instructions can also be seen here:
The success of your Bat Bungalow depends on a number of factors, including the exterior color and sunlight exposure. Full, all-day sun is often successful in all but the hottest climates, and houses should be mounted at least 12 feet above ground.
Our Bat Bungalows are designed to maximize your success in attracting bats, and bats are nature's most efficient way of eliminating mosquitoes and other bugs! We use specifications recommended by Bat Conservation International, and quality building materials, such as exterior grade (not pressure treated) 1/2" 4/5 ply BCX plywood. The inside panels are hand-routered and stained, making for an easy climb into the chamber, rather than painted, as the paint fills the grooves created by the router. We do not use any materials, such as screens or plastic mesh, that will deteriorate over time. All connecting surfaces are sealed tight with caulking and then screwed together.
Each Bat Bungalow is individually handcrafted in the USA.

The screws are countersunk and filled with wood filler so there are no visible screws, giving the house a clean, finished look. Outer surfaces are primed and then painted using two coats of exterior grade, water-based flat paint. We provide four colors to choose from, maximizing temperature efficiency and attracting bats with the goal of keeping them comfortable, whether they migrate or roost year-round.
We can leave the flat exterior surfaces of your Bat Bungalow unfinished for you to paint or stain. The interior surfaces and routered landing pad extending from the base will be stained as seen here.
