Description

This bat box consists of four compartments where the slats are angled to create different widths. The hive is applied to facades during temporary mitigation of maternity colonies.

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 especially suitable as a maternity box but can also be used as a summer and/or mating enclosure. In mild winters, the hive can also serve as a shelter.

The cabinet is finished in white so the temperature inside the cabinet is less likely to heat up when placed in a sunny, warm location. The four compartments create different microclimates in the cabinet.

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
  • Place the cabinet at a minimum height of 3 meters.
  • The cabinet is less suitable for placement in trees but this can be done.
  • The cabinet can be placed on any wind direction.
  • Provide a clear approach and egress route for the hive.
