The innovative design of the Batcone 2 is ideal when a square shape is better suited to the entry port of a bat colony. It is designed with a built-in solid flange with mounting holes which allows easy and fast installation. It can also be used with the flexible vinyl flange, making it effective for virtually any surface application. For best results with Batcone 2, bend flanges slowly back and forth to prevent breakage. At dawn or dusk, which is the best time to conduct a “bat watch", observe points of entry exit for bats in structure. Incoming /outgoing bat activity will assist in determining number of cones needed for installation. For large bat colonies, use multiple cones for best results. Install cones at entry points, always at a downward angle; this is CRITICAL to seal all other entry / exit points before installing cones strategically to prevent bats from moving to other sections of structure. After bats leave structure to feed and you are certain they are all outside the structure, remove remaining cones and seal all holes.
A Word of Caution: Please note that removing bats during their birthing cycles can result in the offspring becoming trapped inside the structure. Please contact your state wildlife agency or state health department for information regarding bat birthing cycles in your region.
