This bat recessed brick is used in conjunction with the IB VL 12 in new construction or renovation. Before installation, the small wood concrete blocks in the sides are removed. These wood concrete blocks can be easily cut out. The recessed bricks can be switched to the left or right. Several IB VL 16 recessed bricks can also be placed side by side in the wall, creating a large bat box in the cavity.

As a summer, mating and maternity enclosure (when at least 3 are connected) possible for:

  • Common, rough and small dwarf bat
  • Latent flyer
  • Bicolored bat

In mild winters, possible use by:

  • Common dwarf bat

For bats, the more space they have available to them the better!

  • The recessed brick can be applied to any wind direction.
  • Place the recessed brick as high as possible in the facade (bottom of brick at least 3 meters)
  • Keep the approach route to the hive clear. Do not allow trees or shrubs to grow in front of the wall or place blinds or the like above the recessed brick.
  • Do not place the recessed brick over a door, window or balcony due to bat droppings
  • The location of the built-in stone must not be illuminated, so do not place lighting near or on the built-in stone
  • When multiple stones are used per site (in combination with the IB VL 12), they serve as summer or mating habitat and possibly as small maternity quarters.
  • It is up to the user to determine how best to mount the bricks together. There are several options, such as connecting the recessed bricks with coupling plates and screws or with cavity anchors. Sometimes they are also glued. Mounting hardware is not included.

No maintenance is possible with this built-in stone as it is not accessible.
