BUILD: BAT BOX
This project is intended to provide a safe space for groups of small bats around your property. Bats are very sensitive to weather changes and most intakes at rehabs are due to a member becoming separated from their group during inclement weather.
The outside of the box can be painted or stained to decorate it and help protect it against the elements. Do not treat the inside of the box where bats will be in contact with surfaces.
The overall dimensions can be scaled up for larger bats species. by increasing the depth of the risers.
Mount the box at least 12 feet up (maximum 20 feet) on a sheltering tree or side of building. East and/or south facing directions that receive a minimum of 6-8 hours of sunlight is ideal.
