Coveside "Bat"chelor Pad Bat House, 30 batsEncourage natural bat roosting behaviors by adding this Coveside "Bat"chelor Pad Bat House to your yard. These flying mammals naturally separate by gender, with a larger nursery colony comprised of mothers and young bats, and a smaller group of males called the bachelor colony. This tall, single chamber shelter is fantastically sized for up to 30 bats, and its interior netting provides them plenty of gripping spots. Rough hewn pine assists in this endeavor, and the extended length of the domicile offers abundant room for these animals. A downward sloping roof keeps the unit protected from rain, and a 5" long slot on the front provides ventilation, as well as acts as an echolocation slot for bats to return to it. The 0.75" thick, pine boards withstand use for many seasons, and were sustainably sourced for environmental friendliness. Their natural, lighter hue will age to a silvery gray over time for a dynamic look, and attached hardware makes placement against a wall or tree simple. For showcasing the home in an open area, affix a mounting bracket to its back and place the home against a pole. Use this shelter in conjunction with a larger one to encourage bats to create 2 colonies for a fantastic method of natural pest control. House new pollinators in your area by placing this "Bat"chelor Pad Bat House in it. Made in the USA.
