I am hoping some of the bat people can assist me here.

I have recently been reading about micro bat box designs, with the hope of making one in the future.   There seems to be quite a bit of conflicting information about various designs, but most seem to emphasise that a north facing aspect for maximum heat is important. 

While I can understand the need for this in winter, I would imagine that attaching one to the north side of my house (uncovered, bare brick) would result in some ridiculous summer temps. I am trying to avoid any mass casualties, such as the ones that occurred last summer in QLD (although I believe those were not micro bats).

Any thoughts on box placement in Canberra?
