Bat house diy – In general, if colony is placed on roof or eaves of house, it is very likely that it will not cause discomfort, and we will be able to live with colony without any inconvenience.

If a high number is observed during spring or summer, it is most likely a breeding colony, which will include adult females and their offspring. Pups are usually born in June and during first 3-4 weeks are not able to fly, so they remain constantly inside bat house diy.
