Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a Certified Bat House! This bat house is simply too small for bats. The minimum size is 14" wide and at least a 20" tall chamber(s). Also, the chambers should be no more than 3/4" in depth. This maybe a fun project but it is simply conVERsational not conSERvational. For a REAL bat house that works, search for a Certified bat house builder. Preferably constructed from rough cut cedar. October 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great bat house! This bat house was easy to assemble. My son and I enjoyed putting it together and hanging it in our yard. Now we are just waiting for the bats to move in! July 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terrific for the money! I bought two to make as a gift for a friend. Followed the directions EXACTLY on the first house and of course, the hanging insert was slightly too large to "slide inside" after assembly. :P I ended up using that one as a template for decorating later. When building the second one, I made sure to attach the hanging insert BEFORE fully assembling the house and that worked out much better. I can't paint well so I ink stamped it and then polyeurothaned it for durability. I think it came out cute. January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by These were a great deal and lots of fun We had eight kids ages 4-8 make these bat houses and they turned out great. The kids needed a decent amount of parent help, but they could do a lot on their own and the whole project took about 15-20 minutes, well within their attention zone. They then decorated them and made them their own. So fun! April 10, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst purchase ever junk ...poorly made and cheaply made . Will not last more then one year outside ....pure junk July 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bathouse I should have researched more before purchasing. This bathouse is to small. October 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Image for bat house very deceiving. From the image accompanying the product, the bat house to be made of better materials than what i received. The roof and the back of the house are made of some 3/16" laminate not at all suited for long lasting exterior use. In addition, bat's need a rough surface to attach themselves more easily. While the directions caution the purchaser to avoid sanding the interior surfaces, they are already too smooth. Not very bat friendly. I am returning all but one of the six I purchased because I opened one of them. December 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bat Houses Great for Kids I bought 25 of these kits for my 8-9 year old Brownies. We had studied bat conservation for Earth Day and this was our final activity. They worked in pairs. With adult supervision, each team was able to build two bat houses (one for each girl) in an hour. They LOVED this activity. My only complaints are: the directions were not real clear...the pictures did not match the actual items in the kit, so it was hard to figure out which piece was indicated. Fortunately, it's not a complicated kit so we could do it without instructions. Also, the nails provided were bigger (and therefor harder to use) than needed. If I were to do it again, I'd pick up a box of 1.5 inch finishing nails to use instead. That said, I would definitely recommend this product. (I did think the price was a tad high, but there was a free shipping promo at the time so that helped a lot...because this item is not in the stores.) May 15, 2010
