Species such as the Lesser Noctule and the Common Noctule, as well as Daubenton’s, Nathusius’s Pipistrelle and Bechstein’s Bat, are typical representatives of Bats that live in woods and forests. They prefer Bat Boxes as closed systems, as in nature they prefer, for example, woodpecker cavities and hollow tree branches. However, as old, diseased or dead trees tend not to be available or rather are removed from managed forests, natural roosts for Bats have become scarce. Bat Boxes can provide a remedy and are readily accepted by the animals. So-called “House Bats” are mainly those that like to roost in buildings, for example, in roller shutter boxes, behind window shutters, niches and gaps. These are, above all, Serotine, Mouse-Eared and Pipistrelle Bats. These Bats prefer, for example, flat boxes or round boxes with several hanging panel partitions.
This general purpose Bat Box is ideally suited as an introduction to Bat protection. At the same time it is a readily accepted resting and temporary roost. The textured and spherical interior roof area allows the Bats to hang optimally. If the Bat Box is not occupied after several years for whatever reason, e.g. due to a non-species-appropriate biotope structure, it can be converted into a Type 2M Nest Box by replacing the front panel. Providing accommodation for a large number of Bats and offering good value for money, this Bat Box should be an integral part of any measures to protect these animals.
The front panel can be removed for inspection and cleaning.
