Zone & Paint Color

The bat box color greatly affects whether or not bats will take up residency. Darker colors absorb more sunlight which will create hotter internal temperatures. Consult the map below to determine what color will work best for your location. If you are unsure which zone to choose, then please contact us and we can help!

Bat box paint color recommendations are based on the average daily high temperatures in July.

  • Zone 1 (blue areas) less than 85˚ = Black paint color
  • Zone 2 (green areas) 85˚-95˚ = Dark gray paint color
  • Zone 3 (yellow areas) 95˚-100˚ = Medium gray paint color
  • Zone 4 (light pink areas) 100˚+ = Light gray paint color

BCI Zone Map

Chambers

Chambers are partitions inside the bat box. These chambers give the bats a place to roost (space for bats to live). The higher number of chambers, the more space available, which can increase the number of bats that choose to reside inside the bat house.

Ventilation

Ventilation slots help reduce the internal temperature of the bat house. The ideal internal temperature is between 80° and 100° degrees Fahrenheit.

Bat houses in zones 2, 3, and 4 come with ventilation slots and holes as these regions have an average temperature in July of 85 degrees or more. Zone 1 does not come with ventilation slots do to it pertains to a cooler regions.

The number of slots we use are based on BCI recommendations. Please contact us if you want to modify the number of vents.

What Makes Our Bat Houses Unique

  • Built to Bat Conservation International standards.
  • Custom made to work optimally in your geographic location. If we notice anything off with your order we will contact you and make the appropriate adjustments.
  • We use environmentally friendly materials such as nontoxic wood stain and  wood from pine trees already damaged in storms and natural disasters.
  • Shingled roof to prevent leakage from rain and snow.
  • Chambers are 7/8 inches apart which offer bats an optimal place to roost while also deterring unwanted guests such as bees, hornets and squirrels.
  • We use marine grade plastic netting (on the landing only) that will allow bats to land and take off safely without getting tangled.
  • All joints are attached with 2" screws and sealed with exterior silicone caulk-glue to ensure a water and air tight seal.

Great Bat house and personalized customer service

Paul did a wonderful job on our large rocket box bat house. He was willing to make a minor adjustment for us which I appreciate. My husband was so impressed with the bat house that he felt like it needed a customized pivot pole.
We saw 2 bats checking it out the second night it was up!

Absolutely amazing service and product

Paul and Sue set the benchmark of what customer service should be. We ordered from Canada and they worked with us on a solution that saved us time and money to get their beautiful boxes across the border to our new family farm. Paul answered my relentless barrage of questions without ever making me feel bad. We can't wait to put them up when the ground thaws. Thank you so much Paul and Sue. Every time we look at them we will be filled with good memories.
