when should I install my bat house?

I recently got a bat house from you and I’m wondering when I should install it. Winter is fast approaching and I know the bats have left so I’m thinking next spring?

In fact the best time to install your bat house would be now. This is because bats seem to like houses which have “cured”. If you wait till next spring, the new smell of the house might prevent any from moving in once they return to you region. But if you get it out now and let it cure over the winter, you’ll stand a good chance of getting bats to move in next spring. And don’t remember to follow our MOUNTING GUIDELINES when installing your house. Hopefully you have a good location already picked out where you know bats are active. Good luck!
