The Schwegler 2FN bat box is a highly successful 'general purpose' box for woodland bat species such as the Common Noctule (Nyctalus noctula). Made of Woodcrete, it will last for years and being breathable it provides a stable environment inside. (The exterior black paint helps to absorb warmth). It can be fitted against trees in woods, forests and parks, allowing the bat to land on the tree and then crawl in through the rear entrance (and later on leave by the front). The domed roof provides an increased internal height and also enables the bats to hang in clusters. The larger space (and larger entrances) accommodate larger bat species. Inside there is a secondary floor. This provides protection against small predators, wind and bright light.Occupants: This model has been successfully in use for many years for woodland species of bats. On one occasion 28 Noctule bats with 9 young Bats were recorded in a 2FN bat box. Also useful for Bechstein's bats, Lesser noctule, Daubenton's and Nathusius' pipistrelle.
- External Dimensions:
- W 16cm diameter
- H 38cm
- Weight: 4.9kg
- Installation: Attach to a tree using the aluminium nail (included), at least 3m high in a sunny location. Droppings can fall directly out of the bottom of the bat box cavity, so the unit is mostly self-cleaning. However, if a large number of bats use the box, then we do recommend checking/cleaning the unit by removing the front panel.
- Includes nest box, hanger and aluminium nail.
