Description
This Bat Box provides a habitat for crevice roosting bats.
Suitable for the Pipistrelles, Soprano Pipistrelles and Barbastelle's. These species make up over three quarters of UK bats.
Based on the tried and tested Kent Bat Box design and made in accordance with Bat Conservation Trust specifications.
This bat box has two bottom entrances with different crevice gaps specifically sized to allow the entrance of the bats but deter other animals and birds.
The bottom entrance also allows bat droppings to fall out so the box does not require cleaning.
The visible bat ladder makes it easy for the bats to enter.
This bat ladder extends inside both front and back all the way to the top.
Constructed from 19mm solid untreated insulating timber - approx 440mm x 240mm x 150mm.
It is recommended to apply a water repellent treatment to the external surfaces but do not use preservatives.
Wood Stain & Protect is available which is water based and animal friendly - Ebony Black is a good choice as it will absorb heat keeping the habitat warm.
Bat boxes are best positioned as high as possible (3-5m) under the eaves of buildings or on trees and should face away from cold east and north winds.
It is recommended to attach the box by attaching battens of wood to the back of the box and then securing the battens to the wall or tree.
Placing several bat boxes in different sites will help provide bats a choice of roosting places.
