This hive is suitable as a summer and/or mating enclosure. In mild winters, the hive can also serve as a shelter. Made of 100% FSC wood concrete, the cabinet is divided into three compartments with wooden panels to create different microclimates in the cabinet.

  • Place the bat box in a suitable location in a tree in a forest, park or garden. Use the large screw hook provided.
  • Place the cabinet at a minimum height of 3 meters.
  • The supplied cables can be looped “loosely” around the trunk of the tree as additional security.
  • The cabinet can also be placed on facades.
  • Place the cabinet in 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.

You can clean the bat boxes once a year in the winter. Preferably during a frost period, check first that the hives are not occupied. A special long-handled brush can be used to remove all cobwebs and other debris (such as feces) in the closet. We also recommend checking the soundness of the nest box and its suspension annually.
