For those who know the great importance bats are to the environment and why we should conserve their populations, here is an easy to mount or install Bat Cottage for 30 Bats to live in and prosper. Your neighbors will know you are doing your part to keep flowers pollinated and pesky bugs under control with this Bat Cottage because of the wood burnt image of a bat in flight on the front of the house.
What are the benefits of having bats in my backyard?
One small bat can eat up to twelve hundred mosquitoes hourly. Bats have a natural immunity to West Nile Disease, which is known to be carried to humans by mosquitoes.
Bats can eradicate West Nile from your area by eating up all the disease carrying, blood thirsty pests! Besides mosquitoes, bats can help control the populations of plant damaging beetles, moths, and leafhoppers.
Bats that use this house: 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.
Materials: tall body, overhanging, sloped roof, and 1" thick ventilation gap handily meet bats' needs, the wooden construction offers a natural hint, the rough interior surface and profusely grooved, vertical dividers aid bats in gripping the piece, and the 4 chambers allow them to naturally divide into nursery and bachelor colonies. The angled roof directs rain away from the nest.
Size: 7"W x 10"D x 17.5"H
