By installing a bat house you will help provide habitat for bats that are at risk of losing suitable roosting sites. An increased presence of bats will help to control the number of insects around your home and garden. Bats are quite sensitive to temperature and wind, therefore selecting a location for a bat house is critical to establishing a successful bat colony.
Daily minimum of 6 hours direct sunlight
Install at a height of 12-20 feet
Avoid placing near bright artificial lighting
Ideally place near a water source
Keep protected from high winds
Monitor bat activity at dusk, relocate if necessary
