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.


The bat box can be placed on both a tree or a façade. Preferably choose a sunny spot but do not place the cabinet under or in artificial light, and avoid placing where the rain can directly access the box.

To hang up the bat box remove the front of the box, you can do this by unscrewing the Allen screw. Two holes are pre-drilled in the rear wall of the box, and you can therefore hang the box with the supplied screws. DO NOT tighten the screws too tight, just tighten enough. Preferably hang several boxes together. When placing in bunkers, cellars, attics and stables, place the cabinets as high as possible against the façade or posts, they should be hung at a minimum height of 3 meters.


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.
