There are various bat species that will be able to use this type of woodstone bat box although this will depend on the species that occur locally and where
the bat box is hung of course.
The attractive bat box design is most suited to crevice roosting bats and has a rough interior to provide ample grip for them to cling to. Bats
need to increase their body temperature before flight so they prefer warm roosting spots, which is why many bat boxes
have a black exterior to absorb heat from the sun. Woodstone® isn’t just strong, it also has good thermal insulation which in turn reduces temperature fluctuations inside the bat box making this an ideal bat roost box.
This particular bat box has two entrances with an integrated pocket barrier, one at the front and one at the bottom. The inside has a
wooden construction where the bats can hang between, and the top of the closet has a free space where the bats can hang
together. The wooden construction is removable, ideal for monitoring and cleaning.
The multi chamber bat box can be placed on either a tree or a façade. Choose a sunny position where possible but do not place the bat box under artificial light. Preferably hang several boxes together at a minimum height of approximately 3 meters.
