About this product

The 2FN Bat Box has two entrances - one at the front and one at the rear against the tree. Bats often creep into the rear entrance but leave by the front. It has a domed roof to allow the bats to form roosting clusters for warmth, and an increased internal height compared to the Schwegler 2F bat box. This design has proved highly successful with noctule and Bechstein's bats; up to 28 noctule bats with 9 young have been recorded in a 2FN. This bat box is also designed to be effective against small predators and excludes draughts and light. Due to the opening on the bottom, this bat box does not require cleaning.

The 2FN 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 2FN is painted black to absorb warmth. It also provides a good rough surface for bats to cling on to and climb.

The 2FN bat box should be sited in trees and is best positioned at a height of between 3m and 6m. Bat boxes should ideally be sited in open sunny positions. Please note that once bats have inhabited a roost site they may only be disturbed by licensed bat workers.

  • Great box
    By Firstname 22 Oct 2020 Written for Black
    Bit tricky to fit from a ladder as 6" nail head doesnt fit throguh lopop in wire hanger and the wire is the toughest stuff on the planet so isnt easily bent or twisted. Bit fragile had five broken now during transit for delivery to us. Usually front panel breaks, two boxes bottoms broken too.
    That said this box type is the one we find most occupancy in of the various ones we have used and they seem to be used in preference to 2Fs.
    With better material mix so dont break as easily this would be an excellent choice BUt with breakages CJ Wildlife boxes are a good competitor for construction and durability.

  • Bird and bat box
    By Austin 8 Apr 2021 Written for Black
    This box has a front entrance and a back entrance which blue tits or great tits frequently use for nesting and by some bats after nesting.
    Contrary to a previous review, this box can be hung by inclining the box slightly to one side and it will slide over the head of the heavy duty aluminum nail. I have purchased and hung dozens of these and very few have been damaged on arrival or after many years of exposure.
