Integrated Eco Bat Box, Crevice, Red
Product code: 10554
The Integrated Eco Bat Boxes are designed to be built into buildings and are sized to replace six standard UK bricks. The built-in bat boxes are equally well suited to brick walls, timber cladding, random stone or external insulation where it can provide a permanent roost space for bats. The box consists of an external shell of UV stabilised recycled plastic to provide sealed, long lasting weather protection whilst internally it features a wooden box made from FSC Certified orientated strand board (OSB) providing a roost chamber for the bats.
In the UK, different bat species have different roost requirements, so to accommodate as wide a range of bats as possible, the box is available in two variants, crevice and cavity.
Externally the two variants are identical but differ internally. The crevice box features two internal crevices 22mm wide, ideal for common pipistrelle and soprano pipistrelle bats. The cavity box is ideal for cavity roosting bats with a single internal cavity 60mm wide with rough walls and roof for bats to hang from.
The box requires no maintenance as it is designed with angled baffles which mean droppings simply fall out of the entrance slot. The box is available with either green or brick coloured front panels to fit tastefully into your building. We suggest these built in bat boxes should be positioned as high as possible in a sheltered sunny place. Ideally, several boxes should be put up facing in different directions to provide a range of conditions.
Bats need time to find and explore new homes, and it may be several years before boxes have residents – be patient!
Droppings on the landing area and chittering noises from inside on warm afternoons and evenings are signs of occupation. Integrated Eco Bat Box A built-in bat box designed to provide a permanent bat roost in buildings. Sized to replace six standard UK bricks without obstructing the cavity. Equally suited to fitting in timber cladding, random stone and external insulation. Self-cleaning design requires no maintenance.
