The General Purpose Wood Concrete Bat Box is a tree mounted bat box designed to suit crevice and cavity dwelling bat species in the UK. It is constructed from wood concrete which is a mix of wood fibres and concrete which makes the box very durable and long-lasting. This material is also breathable reducing the risk of condensation issues and offering a more thermally stable climate for roosting bats.
It features two entrances, one on the bottom of the box which allows bats to crawl into the box from a tree, and one on the front which offers a clear flight path for bats. The entrance hole on the base of the box also allows the box to be self cleaning, reducing the maintenance required. The internal chamber is divided into two chambers, which can help with excluding small predators, and it features a domed roof to allow bats to form roosting clusters for warmth.
