About this product

Please note shipping requirements: This box must be delivered on a pallet incurring a minimum shipping charge of £35.00 plus VAT for standard delivery in the UK. We will advise you of the actual cost by email before we process your order.

This highly sophisticated Bat Roost is designed for the safe hibernation of bats in winter as well as for roosting, forming of colonies and raising of young during summer. The layered structure of the bat roost materials means that the 1WQ has excellent insulating properties whilst guaranteeing air convection and permeability. As with all Schwegler products, this extremely durable box will last for many decades, maintenance free.

The interior of the 1WQ provides a selection of surface textures and areas with different hanging depths making it easy for different bat species to find their ideal position throughout the year. The entrance area is also purposely designed to allow the bats good grip during their approach and entry. This is particularly important for juvenile and inexperienced bats. 

This roost is suitable for typical building-inhabiting species such as Pipistrelles, Serotines, Noctules or Bechsteins. 

Installation:

Installation is easy using the four screws and plugs provided. The unit is detachable into two parts. First the base part is screwed to the wall and then the front-cover is attached, covering the mounting screws. The 1WQ can be easily attached to most types of external brick, timber or concrete walls. It can also be placed inside a roof space or inside historic buildings.
