Why Buy an OBC Bat House:

  • All OBC bat houses are made with the highest quality cedar, which weathers well and retains heat
  • The house is fully caulked and offers a longer design, which is a key factor in occupancy
  • Thinner chambers and a predator guard give protection
  • The inside is covered with a polyethylene mesh to aid in maneuverability and there is an extra long landing platform. Proper bat house design is a very important factor in occupancy
  • Our bat houses have a greater than 80% occupancy rate, as compared to only 10% with some other designs
  • Proceeds go back into conservation work
  • Our bat houses are 100% made in the United States
  • Each bat house comes with mounting instructions and information about bats

Extra-large bat houses are great for large areas or when evicting large colonies of bats. They make wonderful and unique gifts.

Reviews

  1. This is an excellent product. I bought two of these and placed them on a 6 X 6 post with the opening at 24′. Site selection, positioning, paint colors, are very important for success with bat houses, and there is very good information out there about this.

    The workmanship is excellent and made to exacting standards for successful attraction of bats. They are well worth the modest price of $95.00 given the methods and materials used to achieve optimum success. I posted my bathouses too late in the year to have success, but the following spring we had 60 bats growing to a colony of 150, and in the second year, we had over 200 bats in one of the houses. The bats used it as a nursery, and we had quite a few babies amongst the colony within a few months.

    Unfortunately, I had to move and could not take the bat houses with me to my new home. I left them in place for the next homeowner, but unfortunately they destroyed them and tore them down. Ignorance!

    I have just purchased a new home where I plan to put up additional houses as soon as I have the finances available to purchase, and I plan to buy 6 of these bat houses this time, hoping to help re-energize the devastated bat populations.
