This Schwegler 2F bat box is the ideal ‘starter’ box to see if there are bats in your area. If it is not occupied after a number of years, it is easily converted to a 2M Bird Box by simply changing the front panel.
- In The Field
Bats love warmth which is why their roosts generally face south. This is also why SCHWEGLER Bat Boxes are painted black to absorb heat. Ideal places to put up bat boxes include: open, sunny positions on woodland tracks, in clearings or where the wind has blown trees over, quiet tree-lined roads, large gardens, cemeteries and many other sites. Proximity to water such as ponds or streams is always advantageous. Because bats may suddenly decide to move to another location, it is best to hang up groups of 3 to 5 boxes close together. They should be hung at heights of between 3 and 6 m.
Do not renovate buildings which contain bat roosts (or clean out bat boxes) before the beginning of September; it is only then that most of them leave their summer quarters, and bats are much more sensitive to disturbance than birds. When cleaning out bat boxes, simply remove the droppings and do not use any sprays.
