Description

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 box will be used during the summer and in mild winters for roosting and shelter.

The box has been designed in conjunction with wildlife experts and includes a single narrow cavity making it ideal for crevice roosting bats. The box is made using sustainable materials and no chemical additives are using during production.

Our unique WoodStone® material offers good thermal insulation and therefore creates a more stable internal temperature and rough surface to ensure bats have enough grip to access the box. In addition to creating optimal conditions within the box, WoodStone® habitats also help protect inhabitants from predators.

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.

Siting

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

Hang the bat box with the supplied screws. In the back of the box there is a "keyhole" where the mounted screw can be hooked. The pre-drilled hole in the landing board allows you to secure the bat box. 

Preferably hang several boxes together. When placing in attics and stables, place the boxes as high as possible against the façade or posts - they should be hung at a minimum height of 3 metres (approx. 10 feet).
