There are so many reasons to love night-crawling bats. They pollinate plants, eat insects which help bug control, and their dropping is also one of the world’s richest fertilizers. If you are a bat lover who wishes to save bats from extinction, then you should try making safe habitats for them. People with such conservative vision can now provide them a perfect space through BatBnB, a designer bat house that can be hung on a wall, shed, or pole in your backyard. Lexington-based Christopher Rannefors and Harrison Broadhurst have designed it to be a beautiful, long-lasting bat house. It is specifically designed birdhouse that suits your yard or house while serving as an attractive habitat for bats.
Each BatBnB unit consists of sustainably sourced western red cedar covered in a water-based finish to stay protected outdoors. These bat houses soak sunlight in the day time to encapsulate warmth, while there are vents on the bottom to retain ideal temperature. Moreover, there are grooved pads for easy and safe landing of bats on bottom of the bathouse. After full day’s hibernation, bats will come out in the night time and help reduce mosquitoes and other harmful pests around the neighborhood.
Place a BatBnB in your backyard, and it will be a great natural pest control solution for your backyard. With this bat house, you can motivate your children to protect the endangered wildlife as well.
The design team has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the project, and they have successfully achieved the funding goal that nicely depicts changing perspective of people toward bats. Early bird price for BatBnB bat house starts from US$199 with an expected shipping in February 2018.
