General information on Bat Boxes

In the case of closed bat boxes it is generally advisable to inspect and clean them at least 1 – 2 times a year. However, you should avoid opening summer and winter roosts during May to the end of July, so that any nursery roosts are not disturbed. Winter bat boxes (e.g. 1FW) should not be opened from November to April, to avoid startling the animals out of their hibernation and to avoid cooling the cavity.


Bat Box 2FN (custom-built)

custom-built, cannot be converted into a Bird Nest Box


This box was developed exclusively for bats and unlike Bat Box 2F cannot be converted into a bird nest box. It is made to the latest findings and has been used successfully in practice for many years. The intermediate floor ensures that it provides the best possible protection against small predators, draughts and bright light.

With two access options: The Bats can land on the tree trunk and climb in from underneath or fly away directly from the wide entrance area at the front. The roost is largely self-cleaning, as the droppings can fall out of the bottom of the cavity. Nonetheless, checking and cleaning are recommended if the bat box is used by large numbers of bats. This type is especially suitable for forests and parks.

The front panel can be removed for inspection and cleaning.
