hi! my husband and i have always loved seeing the bats fly overhead when we are at our camp but only very occasionally see them at home and tho we live in a wooded area.

so...we're thinking of putting up a bat box. but, it seems like it *might* be one of those things they sell you at the garden shop but does't really work any better than mother nature. does anyone have one that has inhabitants? what kind do you have? how long did it take to get them to move in? where do you have your bat box?

thanks for any help...
