In this step we will be attaching the ceiling
and the plastic mesh to the back of the bat house. The mesh is used so the bats have something
to climb up and use with their claws to get into the house with. To install the ceiling
we take our three-quarter inch piece of ceiling stalk that we cut, we line it up with the
top edge of our side rails, this way, and then we drill through the sides with our screws.
Ensuring that the ceiling is flat and square to the back. Again, only drawing the screws
down to flush with the sidewalls. Now, we take the plastic mesh, we unroll it, and we cut it. You can use a
pair of scissors for this, or a pair of tin snips to cut this plastic mesh with. Unroll
the plastic mesh into the bottom, take your staple gun, put about four staples across
the bottom and up the sidewalls about every six inches, and then put it at a staple across
the top. With our bird house, we require a second mesh next to the first. Again, line
the bottom up, you add your staples at the bottom, and again about every six inches up
the mesh to the top. When you’re finished your mesh and ceiling should look similar
to this. And this is how you add the mesh and the ceiling to your bat house.
