An excellent general-purpose bat box, the Schwegler 2F-DFP Bat Box is suitable for summer use by a wide variety of species (and particularly liked by pipistrelles). It’s the ideal ‘starter’ box to see if there are crevice loving bats in your area. The 2F-DFP is the same shape as the 2F but the front panel is fitted with a second inner wooden grooved panel, creating a space for crevice inhabiting bats.
The front panel can be removed for inspection/cleaning.
Being made of woodcrete the box will last for years and provide a stable environment inside. The unit is also multi-purpose - If it remains occupied after a number of years, it is easily converted to a 2F Bat Box or 2M Bird Box by simply changing the front panel. (Contact us for more information).
Which bat species?
Crevice-dwelling bats such as Nathusius' pipistrelle, Daubenton's bat and Pipistrelle Bats.
Usage (Which part of the life cycle)
Summer use - seasonal roosting.
The 16cm diameter bat box provides a crevice for inside for the bats, with a 4cm x 1.7cm (approx.) entrance via the front panel.
If a larger cavity (rather than a crevice) is required, then the 2F model is needed.
See More Info tab for technical details.
See In The Field Tab for mounting details including which direction the box should face.
Dimensions: 33 x 16 x 16 cm.
Bats are a schedule 5 protected species under the Wildlife & Countryside Act. 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.
