high as you can get it on a shade side to keep the light and heat down attract them with fruit like oranges or something tacked to the out side cut one in half stick it on a nail. the fruit will attract and grow gnats and fruit fly's around the box the bats will be attracted to eat.

I have a variety of bleeding heart that I can't figure out the actual name is. It is more like a vine and has small flower clusters that are pink. The seed pods are round and green.
