Certification & Vendor List

Many commercial bat houses are not suitable for bats because of inadequate design or construction, or they lack proper instructions concerning painting, placement, sun exposure and mounting. BCI's Bat Approved Certification Program has worked since 1998 to improve the quality of bat houses and to provide some guidance for anyone interested in purchasing a bat house.

Manufacturers who wish to earn the Bat Approved certification must submit a finished bat house for evaluation. Only those houses that meet all criteria are certified. All certifications are for a two-year period, after which the bat house and instructions must be re-evaluated.

Here is a list of vendors that BCI has certified for bat houses intended to serve as artificial roosting habitat for most bat species found in the United States and Canada.
