About this product

The Schwegler 1FS Large Colony Box provides bats with a very large internal space. This allows high numbers of bats to congregate together and makes it very popular for accomodating large colonies in summer. It is particularly attractive to Noctule (Nyctalus noctula), Nathusius' Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus nathusii) and Common Long-eared Bat (Plecotus auritus) and nurseries containing 70-100 bats have been observed. The large internal space and variety of hanging places makes it ideal for bats to use as a nursing area. The 1FS is suitable for both summer and winter quarters but for a specific over-wintering box we recommend the 1FW Hibernation Box

The front panel consists of three grooved wooden panels and the special roof panel with an insulated grill is ideal for bats to cling to. A special panel is fitted on the inside of the roof, with an insulated grille onto which the bats can easily grip or hang on to.

The front panel can be easily removed for cleaning and inspection. If the box is being used by large numbers of bats it is advisable to check it regularly to remove the droppings.

Supplied with a galvanised hanger, mounting block and aluminium nail.

Schwegler bat boxes are backed by conservation organisations, government agencies and forestry experts and have the highest occupation rates of all nest boxes. They are carefully designed to mimic natural roost sites and provide a stable environment.
