Conservation Bat Box
Conservation Bat Box is aimed at conservation professionals and pro landscapers. It has twin vertical chambers with angled cut away front showing ladder style grooves which allows the bat to climb into the preferred chamber. Designed for multi species the chambers may be accessed for inspection by licensed bat workers via the hinged roof which is secured by a removable screw.
Handmade and untreated solid, high quality, durable FSC timber
Provides longevity and excellent insulation.
Bats are very sensitive to smell and will be deterred by any treatments
Decorative finish on the front is water based paint only
Design of the bat box means the bat droppings will fall to the floor
Bat box should be sited high up between 2.5 and 5m on a building or mature tree
The ideal aspect is so that the box receives only part sun during the day
If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation
Bats are a schedule 1 protected species under the Wildlife & Countryside Act. It is illegal for any member of the public to disturb a roost, handle or kill any bat. Bat boxes therefore may only be inspected by a licensed bat worker. However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance, look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt.
