Abstract

A new design for an easy-to-build bat trap is presented here with details for its construction. This trap was assembled from widely available polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubing and fittings. It was used in a variety of different landscape types under various environmental conditions. The trap functioned effectively and efficiently without harm to the animals. Captures included many individuals from several bat species.
