Chavenage Wall Mounted Bat Box

Chavenage Wall Mounted Bat Box is a single chamber quality nesting box for bats. These protected mammals have lost many roosts in recent years. This natural timber Bat Box will provide a roost for a variety of species. Eg:- Pippistrelle, Noctule, Leisler’s, Natterer’s, Daubentons and Brown Long-eared bats.

It will fit into any garden, woodland, or a house wall site. It is made from untreated solid, high quality, durable FSC certified timber which provides longevity and excellent insulation. Bats are very sensitive to smell and will be deterred by any treatments applied. The box is accessed by the bats through a narrow entrance slot at the base to prevent predation.

The bat box should be sited high up between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree using the pre-drilled back plate hanger. The ideal aspect is so the box receives only part sun during the day North, South West or South East. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation.

Bats are a schedule 1 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.
