Upside Down Ornamental Bat House


Looking for some clever outdoor decor? You might consider hanging a birdhouse upside down to make an ornamental bat house, like product designers estres did with this ingenious work called Mus. Part of the charm of Mus is that it presents the presences of bats as a desirable thing, because bats are often seen as pests even though they can be beneficial to humans by eating pesky insects. It’s nice to see bats getting a little decorative TLC, just as long as they stay outside!
