Tree Hanging Woodstone Bat Box
Specifically designed to reproduce the same habitat as a natural hollow tree bat roost site, this tree hanging bat box has 4 integral bat roosting chambers to accommodate large numbers of bats.
This bat roosting box is painted black to absorb the heat of the sun and provide the warmth that the bats require. The concrete and wood fibre mix make this bat box durable and maintenance-free.
Mounting brackets are provided for the bat roost but for more exposed locations there are also two fixing eyes on the side of the bat box that allow a rope or wire to be passed around a tree trunk. Ideally sited on a sturdy tree or building in an area where bats are often seen or known to feed. Wet or marshy environments tend to attract bats to feed on insects and take a drink. Place this box at least 2 - 5 meters off the ground and make sure there is a clear flight path for access. If possible, you should try and place in a sheltered area and facing south or southwesterly to get a little heat into the bat box during the day.
WoodStone® is a mixture of sawdust from FSC wood sources and concrete, and it is designed to last for years. It is breathable so there will be no problems with condensation and Woodstone maintains a consistent temperature inside, providing excellent insulation for roosting bats.
