Some animals have gone above and beyond to improve the lives of humans and give back to nature. They have helped restore forests and even acted as guides for other animals. Sometimes, they are indebted to us, and other times, we are to them. This genius bat house provides shelter to occasional visitors and also helps households eliminate mosquitoes.
Made of sustainably sourced, rot-resistant cedar, the four bat box models feature clean lines and angular edges.
Creators Harrison Broadhurst and Christoper Rännefors ensured that the boxes had features like grip pads, good ventilation, and appropriate spacing between interior panels.
Because bats are insect-loving mammals, you can also say goodbye to any potential mosquito problems.
Broadhurst and Rännefors founded the bat-friendly startup because of concerns over the spread of the Zika virus and an awareness that chemicals used to kill mosquitoes can also poison local wildlife. But the average bat can eat thousands of insects in a single night.
The bat house, playfully dubbed BatBnB, is a clever solution to backyard pests. And where I’m currently living? You can count me in.
