Will a bat house prevent bats in your home?
Bat houses are a nice way to enrich the exterior of your home and
front yard, and do a favor to bats and ecosystem at the same time.
Both, bat-lovers and homeowners looking to protect their home from
bat infestation, are looking for the right ways to design and
install a bat house that will be comfortable and appealing to these
tender mammals. Those who simply love bats and look forward to have
them living on their estate are putting great efforts into finding
the perfect design for a bat house that will fit the animal’s needs,
so that the colony would find it appealing to roost in it. There are
also those who are looking to use the bat houses to keep the bats
away from their home. The question is, will this method be
Sadly, most people fail in their attempt to keep bats within their
own house so that they wouldn’t roost in their home. The reasons for
that are numerous, but the most obvious one is that creating,
purchasing and maintaining an adequate bat house is a lot harder
than it seems. It requires someone to know the nature, habits and
needs of bat very well, like a bat lover or an enthusiast. A lot of
bat houses that are sold in stores or online are not well-designed
and adjusted to the needs of bats, and those that are, are hard to
spot and recognize unless a person is a bat enthusiast. Even if you
manage to build or purchase a good quality house, proper placement
is a difficult task. Bats need a house that is warm, but not hot.
This means that it needs to be located in a place that has at least
7 hours of early morning alight. Bats like quiet places, so the
house will need to be away from traffic. Bats don’t like to be
disturbed, so the house will need to be in a remote part of the
estate. Also, bats need a permanent source of water and house of
proper height, with a landing plate of adequate size installed. When
we consider all of these together, it becomes clear that finding a
proper placement for a bat house is a difficult task. In most cases,
bat houses fail to deter bats from entering homes.
