Not all bats are for Halloween part 1

Home Inspector with Der Hous Inspector

Why would a homeowner want to install a bat house?

  • As housing developments expand into animal habitats and forests are cleared for logging and development, bats are having a harder time finding natural places to roost. Bat houses provide shelter for these troubled mammals.
  • Bats are an effective, natural and safe method of pest control. A single brown bat can consume up to 600 mosquitoes, beetles and moths per hour, many of which would otherwise wind up in and around houses where they destroy wood, fabric and food, and annoy building occupants and potentially spread disease.
  • Bats roosting in the attic of a house may leave for a nearby bat house, saving the homeowner the trouble of harming the bats or forcing them to move.

I have feeling the HOA's in the Houston area would not look favorably on a bat house in someones back yard. If you live in the country with some type of land with no HOA then probably not a problem and like you said maybe a good idea.
