About this product

The 2F is the standard and most popular bat box and is ideal as a starter box to see if there are bats in your area or to provide much needed secure roosting space. It has been designed as a summer roosting space for bats and has a simple entrance hole at the front. The Schwegler 2F has a removable front panel and can be converted in to a bird nest box using a replacement 1B front panel if there is no evidence of bat activity after a couple of years. The 2F is manufactured from long-lasting Woodcrete, which is a blend of wood, concrete and clay which will not rot, leak, crack or warp, and will last for at least 20 - 25 years, making it suitable for long-term mitigation projects.  Woodcrete is breathable and maintains a stable temperature inside the box and the 2F is painted black to absorb warmth.  It also provides a good rough surface for bats to cling on to and climb.

The 2F bat box can be sited in trees or on buildings and is best positioned at a height of between 3 to 6 metres.  Bat boxes should ideally be sited in open sunny positions and in groups of 3 to 5 boxes facing different directions to provide a variety of micro-habitats.  Please note that once bats have inhabited a roost site they may only be disturbed by licensed bat workers.

Schwegler bat and bird 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 nest and roost sites and to provide a stable environment.  A separate replacement front panel is also available.
