Ready to Hang! This large rustic bat house is hand made of western red cedar beveled siding and OSB board. The three roosting chambers are 3/4" to 1" wide as recommended by Organization for Bat Conservation. This design will allow bats to enter but will deter predators such as squirrels and wasps from building nests. Front and side ventilation slots allow the bat colony to breath and help control temperature variations. The inside chambers and large landing area at the bottom, comes with a plastic mesh. The mesh gives the bats something to cling to and helps them hold on easier. The standard model measures 14" x 5" x 24" and will hold up to 300 bats. An Extra Large model is also available that measures 21" x 7" x 24", has 5 chambers, and can hold twice as many bats (up to 600!).
