Overview

The BATchelor Pad holds up to 30 bats in a single chamber. It's features include a large screened landing pad, roughened interior surface and an echolocation slot.

Designed for cooler locations preferred by solitary males, but also suitable for a small nursing colony. Bats generally like to separate by gender, with females and children in a larger house, and the males in smaller houses.

If you have problems with mosquitoes, install this bat house to encourage bats to live nearby. Bats sleep during the day, and emerge at night to eat bugs such as mosquitoes, moths, flies, and gnats. Unless you stay up and watch, you might never even see the bats. The ultimate in low-impact, non-toxic pest control, bats are a great way of reducing your insect population in a natural way. They also perform vital ecological roles of pollinating flowers and dispersing fruit seeds; many tropical plant species depend entirely on bats for the distribution of their seeds.

Bats live across North America, but since they’re small, fast, and nocturnal, you may have never noticed them in your neighbourhood. Since this bat house is such an ideal home for them, within a month or so you should have some bats starting to live there.

Features & Benefits:

  • House is rough-sawn
  • Provides shelter for up to 30 bats
  • 1.25" deep chamber
  • Landing platform so bats can get in and out easily
  • Ventilation slot promotes air circulation
  • Echolocation slot on the front of the item helps bats return to the roos
  • Handcrafted from 1" white pine for insulation and durability
  • Mounting hardware not included (2/1-1/2" wood screws recommended)
  • Made in the USA

How To Use:

Where you mount your bat house plays an important role in whether it will be occupied. Bats like warm conditions. Houses can be mounted on poles, sides of buildings, and dead trees. You can place a bat house on a live tree if the tree is tall and the foliage starts above the bat house. Houses should be mounted at least 15 feet above the ground. The higher the house is mounted, the better your chances are of attracting bats.

Bat houses should face south to southeast to take advantage of the morning sun. In northern States and Canada, bat houses need to receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight. You can also paint the house black to absorb heat. Be sure to use water-based, non-toxic, latex paint when painting the house. Southern states may want to place the bat house in direct sun, but unpainted. Extreme southern areas may want to paint the bat house white to reflect the heat.

About Coveside Conservation:

All wildlife nests / boxes are correct in every detail for each species and come with species specific literature and mounting instructions.

All of our nest boxes are crafted of custom milled, premium grade, sustainably grown, Eastern white pine, from Robbins Lumber mill in Maine. Robbins Lumber is a leader in responsible forestry management practices. They replant where they harvest, secure the soil from erosion, preserve wildlife habitats and ensure that a sixth generation of the Robbins family can depend on a healthy and productive forest.

  • Product Quality: Customers tell us again and again that the Coveside products are “the best on the market” with the unique rougher-head finish and secure construction.
  • Environmental Concern: The dimensions are correct for each species and care is given to ventilation and drainage for the well being of the inhabitants.
  • Conservationists Prefer: Coveside products are manufactured from eastern white pine which is preferable because it is a second-growth tree which rejuvenates quickly.
  • Educational Materials: Each product comes with a brochure and a card telling about the wildlife inhabitant that will use it, recommending ideas for location and suggestions for maintenance procedures.
  • Experts Select: Coveside habitats were selected to be on permanent display in the United States Arboretums Buchheister National Bird Garden in Washington, DC and the Wildlife Garden at River Farm Gardens of the American Horticultural Society in Alexandria, VA.
