Product Details

Wakefield premium bat houses are hand-crafted in the USA and made of only the finest, sustainably-grown Eastern White Pine Wood. Eastern White Pine is an ideal material for bat houses because it provides superior insulation during the summer and winter months while remaining light in weight and easy to hang. The Wakefield Bat House features a single chamber, capable of holding up to 12 bats. Bats are one of the most important environmental health contributors to the planet; many plants are dependent upon them for pollination.


As a nocturnal animal, bats are out when the insects are and can eat up to 600 mosquitoes per hour, or between 3,000 - 7,000 mosquitoes per day! In fact, the insect suppression provided by bats to U.S. farmers is valued at up to 50 billion dollars per year! Having bats in your yard can drastically reduce the population of mosquitoes and make your summer nights much more enjoyable. And despite popular belief, bats are generally quite harmless to people; they do not attack humans and are far less prone to rabies than even household dogs or cats.


The Wakefield Bat House features an extended landing pad and an interior covered with screening to provide bats with a maximum foothold. It is also specially designed to include an echolocation slot, making it easy for the bats to locate the cavity. Your bat house should be located in a sunny location, 10 to 15 feet above the ground, and preferably on the side of a building where there isn't any shade. It is common for bats to wait up to 18 months before occupying a new bat house. Fall or winter is a good time to put up a bat house in hopes of occupants the following Spring. Each Wakefield Bat House is built to last and includes a brochure that describes the species, placement, and maintenance of the bat house.
