Fauna Pole for Birds and Bats
Fauna Poles are a system designed to help you attract a variety of species, creating a variety of nesting areas in a relatively small space. Various combinations are possible for the Fauna Poles, we advise that you please contact us to discuss your requirements.
This Fauna Pole is suitable both birds and bats. The top of the pole has two nest boxes that would be suitable for pigeons, below this are two large and two medium sized bat boxes and then the bottom of the pole consists of two Woodstone® nest boxes. The variety of bats that use the boxes depends on what species occur locally.
A variety of combinations can be used for these poles, as they are made to order. We can advise on the combinations that offer the greatest potential for your site. The towers can be supplied for installation using your own site staff or we can quote for a package that includes delivery and installation using trusted and experienced contractors.
The wooden pole is 8 meters long and should be placed approximately 1.5 meters deep, we advise in concrete.
Every year the stability and quality of the wooden pole must be checked for wood rot and stability of the installation. The assembly of the nest boxes must also be checked annually.
The nest boxes must be cleaned in the autumn/winter. If there are no bats in the boces they can be cleaned once a year with a brush with a long handle.
