About this product

The Elisa Wood Concrete Batbox is designed to provide an ideal summer roost and nesting space for a variety of bat species, including pipistrelles and Daubenton's. Sitting close to a wall in order to minimise the dangers of strong winds knocking it free, the Elisa features a single internal cavity with an entrance hole at the bottom, meaning that it does not need to be cleaned. It can also be fitted to trees, and has a specially curved back to enable it to sit more securely against a rounded surface. It is constructed from wood concrete, a blend of wood fibres and concrete, which makes it extremely long lasting but comparatively light. It also has excellent thermal properties compared to timber boxes, retaining heat exceptionally well. 

The Elisa is supplied without fittings, as the necessary supports will vary depending on whether the box is going to be mounted on a tree or wall. It does include a strong wire loop to make hanging easier. The ideal position for the Elisa, as with any bat box, is a height of at least 3m from the ground, in a sheltered area exposed to the sun for part of the day (usually south, south-east or south-west) and away from artificial light sources. For more information, take a look at our blog NHBS Guide: Where to hang and how to maintain your bat box.

    By Jonathan 18 Jun 2023
    Erected on 19th May, 5 metres up, facing south, on an exposed tree on the edge of a new woodland coppice clearing in mid Cornwall.
    Has been occupied continually since 2nd June. Easy to erect using a loose ratchet strap secured through the buckle to aluminium nail. Nice snug fit to a tree due to the curved back. Clearly a desired residence! Thank you.
