10 feet off the ground. Facing South East.
Mesh will rust from the urine. rough up the plywood for them to climb on.
Ours did not.
What was the question?
I don't know the limit but we've seen 2 - 4 bats come out of ours on occasion.
Hi Dan, I apprcit hat you are trying to do here but I would hot advise same. This model is a very poor excusefor a Bat house. I mlstakenly purchased and built one myself.. It has been elevted to 10 ft and secured tomy dock for at least 8 mos.No Bats. To begin with it is too small and he interior panel provided is too thin to curf for a bats grip. I suggest you start with a std width board 6 or 8 mln. By 3 quarters and go from there. I am a 92 year old x Boy Scout if can help let me know. Walt
Don't cut a hole in it. The slot in the bottom is ideal for bats and discourages squirrels. Squirrels are another reason to not mount the Bat house in a tree.
Actually, it comes with bat SEED. So you plant the seed underneath the house and they sprout into juvenile bats in 4-8 weeks.
