Build-in Woodstone Bat Box 90157
This built-in box is ideal for bats, which species uses the built-in box depends on the area where it is used and which species already occur there. When using one box per location, the box can be used as a shelter for one or a few bats or as a breeding roost, but several bricks must be connected to each other to create a larger space. With bats, the more space they have available, the better! Species that may use the box are: common pipistrelle, Nathusius's pipistrelle, serotine bat, parti-coloured bat, soprano pipistrelle
The built-in box can be used in new construction or renovation. The front with slot is made to measure of a standard Waal format (3 layers high). The front of the built-in box (with the slot) is placed flush with or slightly inside the front of the facade. The insulation in the cavity can continue behind the box, so there is no cold bridge. The built-in box can be used connected. To do this, you can remove the wooden part on the left or right. The bats can crawl from one box to another in this way. This creates a large bat box in the cavity. The built-in box can be used in any wind direction with a preference for the southern side. Place the built-in box as high as possible in the facade, but at least 2.5 metres. Keep the approach route to the box clear, so do not allow trees or shrubs to grow in front of the wall and no sun protection or the like above the built-in box. It's better not to place the built-in box above a door, window or balcony. The location of the built-in box may not be brightly lit, so do not place lighting above the box.
The bottom of the built-in box is sloped. As a result, the bat droppings simply roll out of the box. Furthermore, no maintenance is required for this built-in box.
