Our neighbor bought one of these ages ago and finally gave it up as a bad job last spring. For Halloween this year, we spray painted it black and orange and filled the bat logo in with rhinestones. We hung it up on the porch and bought some cheap plastic bats to hang around it. Super cute!

The family of bats that moved in last weekend thought so too!

Now my porch reeks of bat droppings and my children fear the night, but this thing ABSOLUTELY attracts and and shelters our nocturnal companions. Apparently the other, unsatisfied reviewers haven't considered catering to the discriminating aesthetic tastes of their batty neighbors. For bats at least, it's all about the upgrades.

One way to encourage bats to move to your bat box is to take damp soil and fill the bottom of the box. After a few days, empty out the soil and hang the box. This works even better if you use real bat droppings from a nearby bat colony, if you can get them. This process gets rid of the scent of humans that could otherwise be preventing the bats from colonizing your bat house.

So, I will preface my review by saying one should research the proper way to install a bat house before putting it up. To be honest, mine has yet to be properly hung, but it is painted black (which is suggested for my state). Bat Conservation International has some good references online about where to place them. Don't lose patience; bats may not move in immediately. Don't fall for the many myths about bats, just KNOW: they can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes in 1 hour! That's a pretty sweet deal if you can find it in your heart to see how adorably cute these mammals are and let them live a peaceful life in your vicinity. They are basically flying puppies! Which by the way ANY mammal can transmit rabies and "Worldwide, more than 55,000 people are estimated to die of rabies each year (World Health Organization), primarily from contacts with rabid dogs." So remember you still say, "AWWW" when you see a dog roaming outside...you damn sure have the same ability to do so for mosquito-assasinating bats. I just hope all our bat species still exist in 10 years given the awful human introduction of a new aggressive, deadly fungus into their cave homes. The fungus (P.distructans) is to them what the black plague was for humans. :(

Made like a piece of furniture. Nothing cheap or shoddy in the construction. I hope the bats enjoy their new home and all my Florida insects. Comes with location instructions and fasteners. Worth the price.

There are numerous problems with the Audubon bat shelter model NABAT. First, the design is entirely too small to attract bats, as I've now learned from the Bat Conservation Management website (no affliation.) Audubon Model NABAT fails basic design requirements to be certified, notably the NABAT is roughly 11" tall and 8" wide, but BCM stipulates 20" minimum height and 14" minimum width. Simply put, the NABAT model is too small to meet the temperature needs of bats. Aside from the basic design failure, the person who drove the screws through my roof top to the side members failed to ensure the screw was straight before torquing it. This caused the screw to shoot off-center, creating the side member to get a very large split. Clamps and wood allowed me to fix the side member, but now the threaded hole that aligns with the hole in the roof top is still crooked. In addition to the screwdriving issues, there is no caulking or gap seal on any joints. BCM insists bats need this for a usable house. So, I now have a poorly designed house that won't help bats. I'll install it, watch what happens, and compare this house with one that I'm going to build according to the free plans offered by Bat Conservation International (batcon dot org). Bottom line: do your homework and learn what the bat conservationists recommend before buying a house. Make sure it meets conservationists recommendations.

I have built larger bat houses so I know how they should be made & this one fits the bill! I as short on time after moving so I got this one & set it up, after a couple of years it is occupied by bats (4 I believe). Just make sure to get it set-up per the directions and you should be good to go:-)

This is the perfect bat house. Exactly as described and very simple to install on a tree or a barn side. The problem is trying to get bats to find the house to roost. It would great if the instructions provided a method to "bait" the house, although I understand this is not how bat houses work; so perhaps that is a moot point. I have only had the house up for about a month with no bats yet; but I have seen bats nearby so perhaps more time is needed. The instructions suggest waiting up to a year.

This is our second bat house. We are trying to get the bats who live in our shutters to move. Unfortunately, our bats come back to the shutters, ignoring the 2 bat houses, which we have put at the recommended heights and in the recommended places. Igor, Vladimir, and the rest of the gang have returned to the shutters for 3 years now despite our blocking the entrance with mesh. We don't have the heart to evict them.

Anyhow, the bat house is home to a gang of rowdy squirrels, who like to sit on the house and gnaw on the wood.

I guess we'll have to look for a neon "vacancy" sign for the bat house . If anyone has any ideas how to train our bats, please let us know.
