Original Wooden Bat Box
Original Wooden Bat Box offers two chambers and a valuable high capacity roost for a variety of species.
It will fit into any garden, woodland, or a house wall site. Made from solid, high quality, durable FSC certified timber provides longevity and excellent insulation—the narrow entrance slot and strong timber help to discourage predators. A swing panel allows for cleaning, if required, by a licensed bat worker.
The bat box should be sited high up between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree using the pre-drilled back plate hanger. The ideal aspect is so the box receives only part sun during the day – facing north, south-west or south-east. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route, you are more likely to get an 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.
