So you want a Bat House too ? ( who doesn't ? )
OK, OK, I give. From the volume of my EMail, it seems like everyone
wants to know how to be the first on their block to have their very own
Bat House. You know what they say, every neighborhood has one...
Well, here's a couple of ideas :
Purchase Bat Conservation
House Builder's Handbook
I bought a copy and built a new bat house using
the latest information. BCI claims a very high success rate when their
techniques are followed. I'm no longer selling my own plans because BCI's book
is really just the better option. Give it a try.
- Go to your library and get a book. Make sure it is fairly new. There
has been a lot of research lately on new techniques and of the older
books will give incorrect information.
Need a Bird House or a Toad House ?
It seems that many people who end up here also want to get a good book on building
Bird Houses or maybe Toad Houses.
Beastly Abode has plans for birds, toads, butterflies, bats and other
wildlife. I don't know how good the bat house plans are, but the book certainly looks interesting !
I won't even go into how successful my bird house is.
It currently has a squirrel living in it... Hmmm... I once had a bird
try to build a nest in my Bat House. Maybe I should build a Toad House
and it would attract Bats !
