The Green & Blue Bat Block is designed to create roosting space for bats within the framework of new builds beneath a rendered surface, or to be retrofitted within existing properties. Once installed, the front of the Bat Block is designed to sit flush with the outside bricks of a build, with the entrance slightly protruding. Depending on the position installed, the Bat Block can become either a summer maternity roost (South or West facing) or a winter hibernation roost (North facing).
The Bat Block features an internal FSC certified wooden panel, a small entrance space to deter larger birds and predators and a "Bat Ladder" at the base of the box to facilitate bats landing and climbing. The Bat Block can be turned into a colony by knocking out the section on the side and installing Bat Blocks next to each other.
Made from cast concrete using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry and is standard UK block size.
The Bat Block should be positioned at least 4m from ground level, away from artificial light sources and in proximity to vegetation and linear features like hedgerow which bats rely on for navigation and food. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation. The Bat Block does not require maintenance as the design allows droppings to fall from the entrance.
