A quick and fun DIY project!

Invite a colony of up to 100 insect-eating bats into your yard with the do-it-yourself OBC single chamber bat house kit. This bat house has been designed by bat researchers in order to promote occupancy rates. The interior chamber surfaces and long landing platform are fitted with polyethylene mesh to aid in maneuverability. Bat houses with only grooved wood inside do not adequately allow for baby bats to grip. The slanted roof and fully caulked sides offer warmer temperatures and prevent the bat house from rain and chill. This house may be mounted to a vertical surface with the predrilled hole on the top and bottom.

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 kit comes with assembly and mounting instructions as well as information about bats

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

    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 (

    • 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! 🙂
