A bat box has to be made from untreated rough-sawn timber, which ours is.
Importantly for the bats, it is rainproof and draft free.
Importantly for you, the bat box is self-cleaning and maintenance free.
Ideally, the box is best fixed as high as possible in a sheltered wind-free position, exposed to the sun for part of the day.
A clear flight line to the box is necessary.
Our Bat Box has been constructed according to the guidelines of the Kent Bat Society.
