A quick and fun DIY project!

Now with Free Shipping, it’s even easier to invite a colony of up to 100 insect-eating bats into your yard with the OBC Do-It-Yourself, Single Chamber Bat House Kit. This bat house has been specially designed by bat researchers to promote high occupancy rates. In fact, our bat houses have a greater than 80% occupancy rate, as compared to only 10% with some other designs.

Key Features of an OBC Bat House:

  • All OBC bat houses are made with sustainably sourced, quality cedar, which weathers well and retains heat
  • Thinner chambers and a predator guard give protection
  • The interior chamber is covered with a polyethylene mesh to aid in maneuverability and help baby bats to grip
  • An extra long landing platform for safety
  • A slanted roof for proper rain run-off
  • A ventilation slot for good air circulation
  • Proceeds go back into conservation work
  • Our bat houses are 100% made in the United States
  • Each bat house kit comes with assembly and mounting instructions as well as information about bats

This house may be mounted to a vertical surface with the predrilled holes on the top. If you wish to drill extra holes on the bottom for additional security, feel free!  Finally, you may caulk the bat house kit during assembly for extra heat insolation and water-proofing. *Please note: Mounting a bat house to a pole will require additional special hardware not included.*

Single-celled bat houses are great for urban areas or houses with backyards. They make wonderful and unique gifts too!

Bats that use this house include big brown, cave, eastern pipistrelle, evening, little brown, Mexican free-tailed, northern long-eared, pallid, Pallas’ mastiff, Rafinesque’s big-eared, southeastern, and Yuma bat.

Please allow up to 7-10 days for delivery.

OBC is a nonprofit organization that has been working to educate, inspire, and activate people around the United States to save bats for over 20 years! All proceeds from the sale of our store items go towards promoting bat conservation, care for our animals at the Bat Zone, and spurring our outreach programs.

    This is nice and easy to put together. It’d be nice if there was a pre-painted option with a white logo. I spray painted it black for heat absorption, but now you can’t see the cool bat logo.

  2. Why does this cost the same as the already assembled Single Chamber Bat House (https://batconservation.org/shop/bat-house-test-copy/)?

    • The independent company that we work with, Looker, is the one that creates the prices! So this might be a good question to ask them! 🙂
