Segovia Build-in Woodstone® Bat Box
There are various bat species that can use this bat box, this depends on the species that occur locally and where the bat box is hung.
The attractive design is suitable for crevice roosting bats and has a rough interior to provide lots of grip. Bats need to increase their body temperature before flight so prefer warm roosting spots, which is why many of our bat boxes have a black exterior to absorb heat from the sun. Woodstone® isn’t just strong, it also has good thermal insulation, reducing temperature fluctuations inside the box and helping to make this an ideal roost site.
Preferably choose a sunny spot but do not place the box under or in artificial light, and avoid placing where the rain can directly access the box.
The bat boxes must be cleaned once a year in winter, but first check whether the boxes are not occupied. With a special brush with a long handle, all cobwebs and other dirt (such as faeces) can be removed. The suitability of the nest box and the suspension must also be checked annually.
