Reduce mosquitoes and pests
A common bat can eat thousands of insects in a single night, making them the perfect substitute for nasty pesticides. By eating everything from beetles to mosquitoes, bats help keep your garden and your family safe.
Provide a safe habitat
Bats are under threat all over the world, and they need our help. BatBnB offers a perfect home for them to raise their pups and stay safe from predators.
LEarn to Love this animal
The idea that bats are vicious monsters thirsting for your blood is a myth. In reality, bats avoid people. They sleep during the day and hunt pests at night. Treat them with respect, and they’ll be your best neighbors.
how it works
Each unit can be placed on a wall, shed, barn or pole in your yard. When local bats emerge from hibernation, they'll find your BatBnB and gladly call it home.
Painted surfaces, western red cedar and heat from direct sunlight attract the bats to the house.
Bats enter from the bottom of the bathouse. The landing pad’s surface is for easy gripping.
At night the bats are ready to go out and catch dinner. They use the height of the unit to drop out of the house and gain momentum for flight.
We are working in close concert with Merlin Tuttle of Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation to help design a bat house that is perfectly suitable for the animal's needs so that the bats can comfortably raise their pups in a safe environment. Merlin Tuttle's organization is leading the field in cutting edge research and bat related advocacy efforts and we are honored to have him advising our team.
We encourage the entire BatBnB community to visit www.merlintuttle.org to immerse themselves in research and consider making a donation to their organization.
We’ve also partnered with the Organization for Bat Conservation to allow every backer to register their BatBnB and help record occupancy rates. This offers researchers valuable insights into global population trends.
Providing bats with safe homes is important, but supporting policy efforts is critical to finding long-term solutions. That’s why we are donating a portion of profits from every sale to conservation groups who are on the front lines impacting policy change.
