A single chamber FSC certified timber nesting box for bats, fits into any garden, woodland or house wall site. Provides a roost for a variety of species such as Pippistrelle, Noctule, Leisler's, Natterer's, Daubentons and Brown Long-eared bats. The box is accessed by the bats through a narrow entrance slot at the base to prevent predation. Site high up between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree using the pre-drilled back plate hanger. The ideal aspect is so the box receives only part sun during the day North, South West or South East. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation. Bats are very sensitive to smell and will be deterred by any treatments applied. It is illegal for any member of the public to disturb a roost, handle or kill any bat. Bat boxes, therefore, may only be inspected by a licensed bat worker. However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance; look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt. 43 x 18 x 16.4cm.
