This large maternity box has four chambers and is designed to provide bats with a safe, suitable space for breeding. It is beautifully finished in wood which has been painted black for maximum heat absorption. The bottom of the box, beneath the entrance, has a rough textured ladder which gives bats a good surface on which to land and enter the cavity. The roof is sloped to permit rainwater runoff and the front of the box has an attractive bat motif.
This box is suitable for siting on an external wall or on a tree. It should ideally be positioned between 2-5 metres above the ground in a position where the bats have a clear flight path to the entrance. Facing the box in a south or south-west direction will provide it with at least a few hours of sun and will make sure the box is warm.
