This pole box kit can be used for mitigation and compensation of some bat species. Especially for the common dwarf bat, this pole box has proven effective as a summer/pair habitat and as a maternity box.

A set includes two 6-meter Douglas posts and two times the VK SK 03 stall box. In addition, it comes with bags of quick concrete and corresponding screws for mounting.

This cabinet has an extended back wall. Bats can land on this section and crawl into the hive from there. 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. This depends on the species occurring locally. This hive is suitable as summer, mating and, for some species, maternity housing. In mild winters, the hive can also serve as a shelter.

As a maternity box possible for:

  • Common dwarf bat

As summer/pair housing possible for:

  • Common, rough and small dwarf bat
  • Bearded bat
  • Forest bat
  • Common big-eared bat
  • Water bat
  • Pug bat
  • Frankenstein

In mild winters, possible use by:

  • Common dwarf bat
  • Big-eared bat
  • Preferably place the pole box in partial shade to avoid overheating in extremely hot weather.
  • Place the pole box at least 1 to 1.5 meters deep in the ground. This depends on the soil conditions at the site.
  • The pole box comes with 6 25-kg bags of quick concrete and 8 stainless steel counter head screws for mounting the scaffold.
  • Provide a free entry and exit route
  • Do not place the pole box in lighting of lampposts etc.
  • Multiple pole boxes near each other is preferred.
  • If desired, we can provide full installation services. Contact us for options.

The bat pole box 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 the cobwebs and other dirt in the cabinet.
