Why should I care about bats?

As primary predators of night flying insects, bats play a vital role in maintaining the balance of nature. By consuming vast numbers of pests, they rank among humanity's most valuable allies.

How long has BCI been the leading expert in bat houses?

BCI has been researching bat houses since the early 1980's. Since then, we have been on the cutting edge of bat house design and research.

We have analyzed more than 15 years of data from thousands of volunteer Research Associates to determine the most effective ways to attract bats to your bat house. BCI's Bat House Project can help you select (or build) and install successful bat houses.
