You can make them yourself or purchase them. You can attach them to your home, a fence, or a pole at a height of 12-20 feet. Bats prefer them not to be attached to trees because it’s too shady, branches can get in their way, and it would make them an easy snack for predators. Making your yard bat-friendly ensures that you can enjoy their company while having a natural pest control system.
