this a small bat house I made for the folks earlier this year. My wife had seen them on the puter and we see bats all the time at their house so we thought hey why not try to make our own. we havent seen if its gonna work yet but will find out when it gets a bit warmer. We have been told the bats are good for keeping the insects down. It’s a nice little 1 day project and easy to build. You can make them a lot bigger than this if you have the space.

I love the little critter on the front. A bat palace for sure.

At the risk of sounding like a “know it all” i have to offer this warning…
Do not put it over anything beloved, or anyplace well traveled…..

I have one of these (not as nice as yours) and it is inhabitated by bats. Wayne is right. The first sign of occupancy is a pile that looks like mice turds beneath the box. I think mine are hibernating now.
