Esschert Design Silhouette Two Chamber Bat House, 20 bats

Provide lasting and thematic roosting spots for bats with this Esschert Design Silhouette Two Chamber Bat House. These flying mammals typically dine on nocturnal insects, making them a wonderful, natural form of pest control. They also readily shelter in manmade houses, and this stylized, two chamber unit fantastically meets their needs. Sustainably sourced wood with a soft green hue creates the rectangular frame, while an overhanging roof with metal cover protects the interior from the elements. A black panel divides the piece into two chambers, and its bottom edge sports arches and a point, evoking a bat's tail. The green, shorter panel in front of this one is cut to mimic a bat's outstretched wings and lifted ears, for a remarkable and familiar motif. Horizontal lines throughout each panel help bats grip the unit, and metal tabs on the top and base make it easy to place the home against a wall. The wooden construction remains durable for many seasons, and the 0.5" gaps between each chamber provide small bats access to them. Offer these superheroes of pest control a wonderful daytime hideaway using this Silhouette Two Chamber Bat House.
