The Heath Deluxe Bat House provides a safe and comfortable home for a colony of 20 or more bats. Pair the aromatic cedar construction with bats' insect-eating habits, and you've got a natural insect repellent for your backyard! This single chamber home features horizontal grooves from the 2½" landing area throughout the inside to make clinging a cinch while bats are resting. A ventilation gap in front provides plenty of airflow, regulating the inside temperature. Mount this bat house 15' high on a tree or pole facing south to guarantee sunlight during the day.
