Description

This large stall box is suitable for installation against masonry walls and other rough facades. Bats can crawl into the hive in two ways. Through the wall, because the back wall is 2 cm clear and through the openings at the bottom. The cabinet’s open bottom makes it easy to inspect. The three compartments, spaced 19 mm apart, are mutually accessible through holes in the partitions.

There are several bat species that can use this bat box. Among them are the common dwarf bat, moulted dwarf bat, little dwarf bat, bearded bat and fire-bellied bat. This depends on the species occurring locally. This hive is suitable as a maternity enclosure but can also serve as a summer and or mating enclosure. In mild winters, the hive can also serve as a shelter. The compartments (including the space between the wall and the cabinet) create different microclimates in the cabinet.

As a maternity/summer/pair habitat possible for:

  • Bearded bat
  • Common dwarf bat
  • Little dwarf bat
  • Latent flyer (experimental)
  • Lake bat (experimental)
  • Shaggy dwarf bat
  • Bicolored bat (possibly also as a maternity roost)

In mild winters, possible use by:

  • Common dwarf bat

The cabinet is made of waterproof bonded exterior plywood. On the inside of the back wall and on one side of the partition, it is finished with spray cork for good grip. For better cabinet protection and insulation, the outside of the cabinet is also finished with spray cork. The cabinet comes with the appropriate hanging hardware for easy installation.

  • 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.
  • Do not place cabinets over windows and doors.
  • Do not place cabinet on illuminated facades or in light from lampposts etc.
  • Multiple cabinets near each other is preferred. In doing so, vary in wind direction and altitude.

The bat boxes can be cleaned once a year in winter. Preferably during a frost period. First check that the cabinets are not occupied! A special long-handled brush can be used to remove all cobwebs and other debris from the cabinet.
