How can I build a habitat that will attract bats?

    Find out which type of bats inhabit your area and tailor the habitat you create to their preferences. Evening bats, free-tailed bats and big brown bats like to roost in old dead trees. They hide behind loose bark, in cracks within the trunk or branches, or in holes carved out by birds or insects. Seminole bats, yellow bats and pipistrelles, on the other hand, often roost in Spanish moss. Yellow bats will also roost in old dead palm fronds. In general, bats like old dead trees and bat houses made of wood provide a very similar type of roosting habitat. Bat houses should be located at least ten foot above the ground (the higher the better) and should be exposed to sunlight much of the day.
