I told DH that I'd really like a bat box for Mother's Day.
(And no, it isn't any kind of metaphor. Hee hee.) I know Gaiam sells them, but wondered if there were better deals elsewhere. Any information is appreciated! Oh, and we have a really small lot--.18 acres. I just thought we'd mount it on the side of the house on the upper story--any reason not to?

we bought one several years back. I never saw any bats near it, though they were in the area. There are rules on where to place them (height above ground, direction to face, etc)

I just found this resource online, this is on placement of the box:

Very cool! Thanks for sharing that. I found one online for $39, so I think Momma's going to get her bats this summer. We have a perfect spot on our house to place it.

That article talked about painting your box to make it warmer--anyone know if bats migrate and aren't around in the winter? Our area gets pretty doggone hot in the summer...
