There are several bat species that can use this bat box, it depends on the species that occur locally and where the bat box is hung. The hive is suitable as a summer and/or mating habitat. In mild winters, the hive can also serve as a shelter.

The cabinet is finished in white so that the temperature inside the cabinet will heat up less quickly when placed in sunny warm places. This bat box is also available in the color black (VK MP 05). Black has the advantage that the temperature inside the cabinet can warm up quickly if the cabinet is placed in a shady, cooler place.

This cabinet is made of waterproof bonded exterior plywood. On the inside of the back wall and on one side of the partition, this bat box is finished with spray cork for good grip. The cabinet comes with dowels and screws for mounting.

  • Place the bat box in a suitable location on the facade. Use the dowels and screws provided
