To be upfront, I was initially going to buy a bat house from the Organization for Bat Conservation itself. (The organization was recommended to me by an article in a national gardening magazine on attracting bats to your garden to control insects). However, the organization's bat houses and bat house kits are sold as fund raisers, so they cost a bit more than I was hoping to pay. I looked up their specifications for building bat houses, but decided that it would be easier for me to find something on amazon.com that fit the specifications rather than build my own.
This company was the only one I found that clearly stated whether they followed the organization's recommendations. Some of the other boxes were built to other standards, such as to Audubon Society Standards, which would probably be OK too. However, most of the other vendors listed how easy it would be to attract bats with their boxes without giving an ounce of information on how well their products were constructed. Unfortunately, the reviews for the other boxes did not give much information on construction either. This one met the construction standards that I was looking for, had more than one chamber, and was reasonably priced for the quality.
The bat house arrived on time and well-packed.Read more ›
- Upon initial inspection the construction is incredibly sturdy. The house feels heavy-duty.
- The nylon mesh is tight and secure, as well as appearing rugged.
- The upper panels are sealed, confirmed by attempting to remove a forward slat.
- The house smells pretty cedar-y. I hope the bats don't wait until it's aired out to move in. I've heard different experiences with that.
I will be staining the house a dark stain to absorb heat, as we are further North in the U.S.
I will update my review when the bats finally move in.
UPDATE: It's been less than two months since installing the Triple Chamber OBC Bat House. I also used Holley Bat Attract Scent. Today (39 days since install) we have our first bat (photo in customer photos). It's a little brown, and we live in Northeast Iowa.
To help ensure you get bats, follow the hanging and painting instructions:

Here is their response:
Thank you for your interest in our USA -made Bat Houses!
Concerning the defective bat houses you have read about, we received a load of "interior" plywood in 2011 that was marked as "exterior" and did not realize the mistake until after we had built and shipped a number of bat houses.
Although Looker Products has sold and is now known as Songbird Essentials - Looker Division, the previous owner is standing behind the product and replacing the defective bat houses as they are reported to us. We do stand behind our product and there is no need to replace the plywood yourself.
