Conservation Bat Box
The ladder style grooves allow bats to climb into either chamber it prefers. Designed for multi-species, the chambers may accessed for inspection by licensed bat workers via the hinged roof which is secured by a removable screw.
This box handmade from untreated solid, high quality, durable sustainably timber which provides longevity and excellent insulation. Bats are so sensitive to smell and will be deterred by any treatments applied. The decorative finish on the front is water-based paint only. The design of the bat box means that bat droppings will fall to the floor so cleaning by a licenced bat worker is'nt necessary.
The bat box should be sited high up. Between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree. It should be hung using the pre-drilled recycled plastic hanger. The ideal aspect is so the box receives only part sun during the day North, South West or South East. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation.
