Cedar Bat Box


This handcrafted cedar Bat Box is a fun and unique addition to any backyard habitat. Handcrafted from cedar planks with a simple minimalist design, this bat box is more than just a pretty face. Along with looking great, being a conversation piece, and giving the bats a place to shelter, it also works as a headquarters for those unheralded yard defenders, the bat! Bats can eat almost ¾ of their body weight in insects each night, so say goodbye to those mosquitoes! And while bees are doing the pollinating work during the day, the bats are on the night shift! Bats pollinate plants and lead to more flowers or vegetables on your plants. Lastly, and most importantly, who doesn’t want to stand on their porch at night, listening to the bats feasting on mosquitoes and think to themselves, “I am Batman!”. The Bat Box comes with a hook attached for ease of hanging on a post, tree, or house!

This Bat Box should be mounted at least 10 feet above the ground, but 12 to 20 feet is even better (if you can get that high!). Choose a sunny location on the east or south facing side of your house, a pole, or a tree when looking for the perfect spot! Bat boxes work best with at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight. If only partial-day sun is available bats prefer morning sun.

This item was handcrafted by my father, a retiree in Reno, NV, who honed his skills by creating amazing gifts for family and friends during the lockdowns of 2020. Having multiple health issues, paired with a global pandemic, kept him from spending his retirement as he planned. Never being one to sit still he spent his time in his small woodshop creating over 100 bird feeders, bird houses, whirligigs, and custom holiday items, all of which he gifted to family, friends, and neighbors. Seeing the happiness his work brought others, he worked with a local women's shelter and created over 30 handcrafted wood toys, which were donated to bring a smile to the children's faces who were staying. He is now sharing his talent and unique abilities with the world through Four Seasons Handmade Woodcrafts!

Bat Box is 5.5”x5”x16.5”
