These bat boxes can be mounted on either a tree or building using the three concealed keyhole fixings located at the top of the box. If possible, site the box at a height of between 4m and 6m in a sheltered sunny place, away from artificial light sources. The box should not be positioned in direct sunlight. Ideally, several boxes should be placed facing different directions, as this provides a choice for roosting bats. A clear path to the entrance of the box is essential.
Please note: All bats and roosts are protected by law and you should only inspect a bat box if you hold an appropriate licence.
