Just hang up this upcycled bat house near your garden or yard to help attract bats - they'll take care of pesky mosquitoes and flies! Handsomely made by Amish craftsmen, our bat house is solidly built from old boards that were used in mushroom beds. This thick reclaimed wood is naturally tough, so no staining is needed.
*Handmade, so dimensions may vary. Mounting hardware not included.
The Story of "Mushroom" WoodThese reclaimed boards were once used in mushroom beds. Made from Cypress and Hemlock, they held the compost in a high humidity environment in where mushrooms were grown. They get their gorgeous brown color from a steaming process used between each crop to kill bacteria.
When the Amish craftsmen get these boards, they power wash them and leave them untreated. You typically don't need to stain this wood because the acid in the mushroom soil created a treatment, making this wood naturally tough. Each shelter is unique - each is handcrafted and has its own beautiful rippled, deep grain pattern. And since they're made from reclaimed wood, you can feel good knowing our planet's resources weren't wasted.
