With the increase in development of new building sites and redevelopment of older buildings, especially in rural areas, availability of roost sites for bat species is becoming more limited. However, bats can be encouraged to remain at old sites or colonise new sites by incorporating artificial roost spaces into the building during the build or renovation process.
The bat brick is a standard sized brick, shaped especially to allow bats to access the cavity of a house. They can be incorporated during both new build or renovation projects. (A cavity chamber may need to be constructed to maintain an area free of insulating material where bats can roost).
The bricks are available in three standard colours - Red, Golden and Brown.
