Why do bats need my support? Bats play a niche role in an interconnected natural system that is directly responsible for the health of ecosystems and human economies around the world.
Why do I need a bat house? Because you’d like to support bats while enjoying a yard with fewer mosquitos! (Did you know? A single Little Brown bat, a common North American species, can consume up to 1,000 mosquitoes an hour!)
Would any color do? No. The internal temperature of the bat house is one of the most important factors in a successful occupancy, and the two main things that affect that temperature are: the color of the bat house and the location/direction it is installed in. Please select a bat house color according to your region in the provided color map.
How many will I need? It depends on the size of your property, but installing about 2 bat houses per acre has worked best for our customers.
Would any bat box do? Not quite! You need a high-quality bat house that can sustain the weather and that is designed to attract bats and give them the shelter they need.
WHITEHORSE is proud to present its new collection of bat houses for outdoors. Our premium 4-compartment bat boxes are built to satisfy bats, and you!
A Unique 4-Compartment Design
This bat house has proved to be exceptionally successful when mounted on houses or buildings, and WHITEHORSE is proud to be the first American company to introduce this unique bat house design to North America.
A Quality That We Stand By
Made from western cedar wood that weathers well and is naturally resistant to rot and insects. This bat box is also constructed in a way that will make it last longer than similar products. Tip: the right house color will provide the roost temperature that bats need in your area, so make sure you select a bat house color according to your location in the provided map.
No Corners Cut
We use a dado-style construction for the joints to keep the chambers dark and dry. We also assemble the bat house with decking screws instead of nails because otherwise it is only a matter of time until the weather separates the nails- leaving the chambers exposed, and rendering the bat house an unsuitable roosting choice for bats.
Easy to Install
All of our bat houses come with exterior-grade mounting hardware. Watch the short video we put together with basic instructions on how to prepare your bat house for mounting. Remember the following important tips:
Avoid installing your bat house on a tree
Mount it at least 10 to 12 feet above ground
Pick a spot where it can receive at least 7 hours of direct sunlight
Enjoy a Richer and More Balanced Soil
Bat droppings (guano) are a powerful natural fungicide that help cleans out toxins from your soil while enriching it with valuable nutrients and improving its texture and drainage. As a fertilizer, guano also helps keep your plants green while strengthening the roots and stems! Tip: use a shallow tray underneath the bat house to collect the droppings, and use protective gloves while handling guano to safeguard your health.
The wood used in making this bat house is 100% FSC (SAI, 2019). That means it is sourced from a forest that is managed with consideration for people and wildlife.
Support Bat Populations
We are beyond excited that you will be supporting bats in your area by giving them a home! And so we created a free guide for you with the 5 tried and proven methods to attract bats and keep them coming back, and none of them include using bat guano or a bat attractant spray because, according to MTBC and BCI, they simply don’t work! (Pictured here catching an insect is a Brazilian free-tailed bat, one of the species that are known to use bat houses in the US)
