Instead of pesticides and nasty chemicals, it’s wise to opt for natural insect control in any environment. By erecting a bat house, you’ll provide proper shelter for these little, harmless, and most beneficial species…the brown bat.
Houses should be mounted 15 to 20 feet above ground, on a tree, pole or other structure. Most bat houses are cedar, but newer recycled models are also available. And like most wildlife homes, these houses range from very basic, to more decorative designs.
