Bat Houses

Bats are a species in alarming decline. Myths and misunderstandings about bats, as well as a loss of habitat have lead to much of their population loss. Bats are primary predators of night-flying insects, and play a vital role in the balance of nature. A single little brown myotis bat can catch hundreds of mosquitos in an hour. A colony of big brown bats can reduce a farms infestation of up to 33 million rootworms each summer.
Bear Creek Lumber was asked to donate to a local Eagle scout project that would create nesting boxes for bats. The boxes are small, requiring limited amounts of lumber. Built with 1 x 6 or 1 x 10, the houses are easily assembled, and can be placed throughout a community. Bear Creek Lumber was happy to oblige. The company has always been dedicated to conservation, and has donated materials for bat projects in the past.
