Our BCM Three Chamber Bat House Kit, All wood saves you the bother of dealing with large sheets of plywood, painstaking roughening, and gathering some supplies. All parts are ready for assembly. Included in this kit are: a 16-page assembly manual, painting instructions for your locality, 2 slotted sides, roughened yellow pine front and back, two roughened baffles, landing screen, screws, roof, roof supports, construction adhesive, and a black asphalt roofing shingle.
Our decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating.
Each interior surface has been permenantly roughened by hand in various directions for the best "batholds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups have been documented becoming trapped under it. The finished box requires exterior paint or stain to complete.
Approved by Bat Conservation International. Invented and built in Pennsylvania. A pole mount is suggested if planning to use this box on a post.
Assembling with a child? We suggest helping squeeze the caulking gun. When drilling, it may be best for the adult to start each screw partway into the wood, then letting Junior squeeze the drill trigger and set the screw.
Kit includes: 16-page manual, back, front, sides, roof strips, baffles, asphalt roofing material, fiberglass screen for landing area, and construction adhesive.
Tools required: screwdriver (preferably electric 14 volt or higher), heavy-duty staple gun, utility knife, paint, and caulking gun. Tools shown for illustration and not included in kit.
Shipped by UPS Ground from Pennsylvania. 6% PA sales tax will be added to orders shipped to Pennsylvania.
