Bat House | Build a bat house for your backyard

Build a bat house for your backyard

While many people consider bats pesky, dangerous and even frightening, the truth is that they do a great service for people seeking to protect gardens and crops. Flying insects that are active at night – moths, mosquitoes, beetles, etc. – can wreak havoc on crops, gorging on them after the sun goes down. Bats are these insects' primary predator, and one bat eats hundreds of these flying nuisances per hour. Just imagine what an entire colony of bats could do to protect your crops and gardens!

  • Make sure there's a source of fresh water within a quarter-mile of the bat house.
  • Keep the entrance to the house free of obstacles, such as tree branches. Bats like to swoop in unobstructed space.
  • Your bat house plans should not include lights; in fact, if you place the bat house near a source of light, it's virtually assured that it will remain empty.
  • Use untreated wood; it contains no harmful chemicals.
  • Keep the surfaces inside the house rough; this allows the bats to grip its floor or walls more easily.
