Triple Chamber Bat Box
A traditional bat box with access slit at the base and access ladder. This extra long box is made from FSC-certified European redwood, and has two fixed internal dividing panels providing three chambers. Inside, grooves in the wood provide a rough interior for the bats to grip onto easily. The lid is located at the bottom and is hinged for inspection. The box is constructed with stainless steel screws that won't rust.
Wooden boxes are subject to fluctating temperatures, so site three boxes around a tree facing different directions, in a fairly sheltered position, to provide the best choice of environments for the bats. Wooden boxes should not be painted or treated with any type of preservative, as these can harm the bats. The box can be expected to last 5-10 years.
