At it is all about habitat.

BAT BOXES, also called Bat Houses, attract and encourage bats to come and to stay. Bats help control insect populations and their presence can be an element of your Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program. Some species of bats specialize in beetles and eat all sorts of other insects including pecan nut casebearer moths. We build Bat Boxes for customers in the Central Texas area, from Dallas/Fort Worth to Austin and Waco. Let us build a Bat House for you.

Custom-made Bat Boxes are available in three styles, the “Rocket” box, the “Nursery” box, and the BAT CABINETTE (a scaled-down version of the Nursery Bat Box, designed especially for the suburban gardener who wants insect control without the chemicals). They are made from your choice of wood: cedar, yellow pine, or exterior grade plywood. Also, you may choose to have your Bat Box unpainted, painted, or custom-painted in your own color choice.

BIRD NEST BOXES, also called birdhouses, provide your feathered visitors with a safe shelter to raise their young. Custom-made Bird Boxes are available for cavity nesting songbirds, such as chickadees, titmouses, and wrens. We also make cavity nesting Bird Boxes for screech owls, barn owls, and wood ducks. Our specialty item is the Bluebird Nesting Box. You may choose painted or unpainted pine or unpainted cedar Bird Nest Boxes for all these designs.

BREAKING NEWS: introduces modifications in the birdbox design. This includes a hinged door for easy cleanup, accessed with a simple rotation of an L-pin, a handy door knob, a door stop, and even tiny grooves on the interior wall for fledglings to climb out of the box.
