The 1FQ Bat Roost is ideal for all types of bats which inhabit buildings. The shape and design make it equally attractive to bats as a roost or nursery and it is also very attractive to the human eye, which is an important consideration.

The structure of the 1FQ has been designed with bat behaviour in mind. For example, the outside of the front panel has been roughened to enable the animals to land and hang onto it securely. Access is via a step-like recess which enables even young and inexperienced bats, to safely access the box. The inside of the box has rough pieces of wood incorporated which provide good insulation and are also used by the bats as perches. The internal layout provides three different areas from which bats can hang and which offer different levels of light and temperature. There are also non-slip areas, gaps ranging from 1.5 to 3.5cm in width and various places for individuals to hide.

Installation of the 1FQ is achieved using the four screws and plugs provided. The back panel is initially screwed onto the wall (using four screws) and then the front panel is attached to this. It can easily be attached to most types of external brick, timber or concrete and can also be placed inside a roof space. (If fixing to timber then the gaps between the wall and the box should be sealed with silicone to prevent moisture being trapped here). The box should be positioned a minimum of three metres above the ground and where there is a clear flight path for bats entering and leaving. If desired, the front panel can be painted to match your building using an air-permeable paint.

1FQ bat box
by Thurston Watson in the United Kingdom (28-08-2013)

Well built - yes

But easy on the eye No - these bat boxes look out of place on an old barn and there are really few alternatives if you want a potential maternity bat box. It would be great if there was a bat box similar to this that mimicked stone work so that it just blended in!!
