  • so, i got a bathouse for my birthday a couple years ago, and i think with our new place, i'd like to put it up somewhere. we are directly on the bay in long beach. i don't think i want it attached to the house (stinky guano?). so, here are some ideas. if anybody has any suggestions, that would be great!
     
    1) attach a 10 - 20 ft tall pole to the bulkhead and put the bathouse there, facing south.
    2) attach a 10 - 20ft pole over the carport, which would be about 50ft off the bay and also facing south. i guess the bat poop would get on the carport, so not a huge problem (i think)
     
    don't really have any other ideas. any thing i should be considering?

  • Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.
