This handmade bat box is designed for multiple species. It has twin vertical chambers and an angled cut-away front showing ladder style grooves. 

Bats face many threats in the UK; help them out by offering an additional roost site. Boxes are most likely to be used if they are placed in an area where bats are likely to feed, such as near rivers and ponds, woodland and parkland.

  • Made from untreated, solid, high quality, durable timber.
  • Decorative finish on the front is water-based paint only.
  • Design approved by The Bat Conservation Trust.
  • Aimed at conservation professionals and pro-landscapers.

Siting

The bat box should be sited high up between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree 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.

The chambers may be accessed for inspection by licensed bat workers via the hinged roof which is secured by a brass catch and removable screw. 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.
