This National Trust Bat Box features a tapered landing platform design and a single chamber of FSC certified timber with rough sawn internal landing.
Featuring ladder style grooves which allows the bat to climb into the chamber easily.
The open design reduces the need to clean and allows for easy inspection.
Our contemporary National Trust range is inspired by Stourhead’s 1,060-hectare countryside estate, home to a variety of wildlife including the tree sparrow and 11 out of 18 UK species of bat.
Bats are protected by law and a license is required to handle them.
However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance, look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt.
Site 3-5 metres high on a tree post or building facing north, south-east, or south-west ideally.
