I've had a bat house for a couple of years, but bats don't like it and I know they're around here.

Check out the BatCon link above.  Lots of new info including if the bat house isn't at least
two feet tall, it likely won't get used...  if the bat house is mounted on a tree, it likely won't
get used.  But even with those, the single biggest factor is the nearness of a body of water.

Never heard of a butterfly house :o

Technically, they are butterfly hibernation boxes.  The butterflies only use them (if
they even do) over the winter to hibernate.  They're not like birdhouses that get used
during the warm weather.

So, I entered my AHA account number and linked my login to my account.

Could you describe that process.  I don't see anywhere to enter my AHA number like you're talking about.

I could swear I just read about this in a magazine in the past couple of days.  Now I gotta go find it.

Coleman Extreme here too, although just the 36 quart.  But hey, it is blue.  Uses a simplified version of Denny's batch sparge braid system.
