The Schwegler 1FFH bat box is suitable for all bat species inhabiting forests and woodland, and provides a suitable Summer roost site from Spring to late Autumn.
The rear compartment is perfectly designed for larger species and is sufficiently large for female colonies and their young, as well as groups of noctule bats. Species inhabiting crevices, such as the Natterer's and Nathusius’ pipistrelle bat, can use the small cavities of the forward compartment as a safe daytime sleeping area. The narrow entrance hole provides sleeping bats with extra protection against predators and disturbances.
Both daytime sleeping areas feature clinging surfaces made of untreated wood and Schwegler Wood-concrete. The grooved design makes it possible for even younger, less adept animals to cling safely to the walls. Individuals can choose a sleeping area which offers them the best possible ambient climate whenever the weather changes.
The Schwegler Universal Bat Box 1FFH can be installed on trees, masts, towers and flat surfaces. Four supports built into the semi-circular rear surface ensure the box is stable in windy weather. The 1FFH is best installed 3 to 5 metres above the ground. Ensure a clear flight path to the 1FFH to encourage bats to inhabit it. The Schwegler Universal 1FFH bat box is also self-cleaning and maintenance free.
