- Upon initial inspection the construction is incredibly sturdy. The house feels heavy-duty.
- The nylon mesh is tight and secure, as well as appearing rugged.
- The upper panels are sealed, confirmed by attempting to remove a forward slat.
- The house smells pretty cedar-y. I hope the bats don't wait until it's aired out to move in. I've heard different experiences with that.
I will be staining the house a dark stain to absorb heat, as we are further North in the U.S.
I will update my review when the bats finally move in.
UPDATE: It's been less than two months since installing the Triple Chamber OBC Bat House. I also used Holley Bat Attract Scent. Today (39 days since install) we have our first bat (photo in customer photos). It's a little brown, and we live in Northeast Iowa.
To help ensure you get bats, follow the hanging and painting instructions:

The good news is that it does have netting that is well placed and attached firmly and it has a front vent (a little smaller than the 1/2 inch recommended and a little lower than the 6 inches recommended).
It does not have rear side vents in the back chamber (I drilled some holes to accomplish this). And it was not as wide or tall as was recommended. Don't know how much impact this will have on getting bats. But it does not meet optimal specifications.
In addition, I was disappointed to find that the chambers go down only about 1/2 of the length of the house (only to about where the front vent starts (about 12 inches from the top). So you've lost 1/2 the potential space for bats. Also, I noticed that there was a 1/2" brace running the length of the middle chamber, which means that you have two small compartments about 6" wide rather than one 13" wide chamber. Don't know what impact this will have on bat attraction, but this does not seem good. Bat Conservation International suggests such a brace only if the house is more than 24" wide.
I used Thompson Water Seal Transparent Sequoia Red to stain and seal the house. I removed the staples from the netting on the landing area so that I could paint this as was recommended by Bat Conservation International. Then restapled after dry. If you paint over the netting, you destroy its usefulness. I used three coats as BCI recommends rather than the one or two that Thompson recommends. Each coat made the appearance darker. I live on the Gulf Coast in Houston with an average July high temperature at about 95 degrees, where a light to dark coating is recommended. This is on the darker side, but I believe that it will be fine as I've placed it on the East side of my house for morning sun.
The big problem was the short length of the chambers. 12" vs the 20 inches recommended. The length is to allow movement so that the colony can adjust the temperature.
I decided to purchase another house, about $35 more expensive, but which met all Bat Conservation International specifications, and which was in fact certified by Bat Conservation International. There are much better, and much worse, bat houses out there.
I used to get bats in the patio umbrellas on my deck every year but since I purchase this house along with S&K Telescoping Bat House Tri-Pole with Ground Socket, 15' and Bat Attract Scent the bats are where I want them and happy enough to come back home every summer. I never have to do anything to the house, I just watch them go out to hunt every evening.
If you want bats you need to understand what they want in regards to a habitat. They don't like houses on or near trees, less than 15' from the ground and they prefer a sunny to a shady location for the heat (like in an attic)
We are in the Texas Hill Country where bats are abundant. I honestly didn't think we could get them so soon. We did use a bat attractant and mounted the house under a high eave on a single story home.
