Wild Your Garden Small Kent Bat Box – Heavy Duty Handmade in UK – Fully Assembled

The Kent Style Bat Boxes are designed to provide a secure roosting space for bats in your outdoor area. This roosting box is crafted to meet the specific needs of bats, ensuring their comfort and well-being. This box is ideally suited to small crevice dwelling species such as the Common and Soprano Pipistrelles. The two rough textured 18mm wide crevice chambers inside the box provide a large surface area for roosting. The precision engineered design ensures close fitting joins to eliminate light and draft leaks. The open bottomed design is such that these boxes are self-cleaning.

Constructed using high-quality and sustainably sourced 18mm ply, the Kent Style Bat Box is built to withstand the elements. Its durable construction and precise design offer excellent protection, providing a safe haven for bats to roost. This box features specially designed crevices and rough surfaces that mimic the crevices found in tree bark or caves where bats typically roost.

Installing our Small Kent Bat Box is quick and easy. The mounting plate (included) slots into a hole on the backside of the box. This allows you to mount the plate, then offer up and attach the box. A much easier process than trying to mount the box directly. The box comes with clear instructions and all the necessary fixings for quick and hassle-free installation. Installation services are also available, please get in touch.

Enjoy the fascinating sight of bats flying and foraging at dusk, knowing that you are helping to support their populations.

Placing Your Box:

1. Optimal Height: Hang the roosting box at a height of 3 to 5 meters (10 to 16 feet) from the ground. This provides bats with a suitable height for flight and easy access to the box.

2. Sheltered Location: Position the box in a sheltered spot, preferably near trees or buildings that provide natural cover. Bats prefer roosting in secluded areas that offer protection from the elements and predators.

3. Orientation: Face the entrance of the box away from prevailing winds and ensure it is not exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods. This helps maintain a stable temperature inside the box.

4. Clear Flight Path: Ensure there are no obstacles, such as wires, obstructing the flight path to the box. Bats need a clear approach and departure route for easy access.

5. Accessibility to Water: If possible, place the box within proximity to a water source, such as a pond or river. Bats rely on water for drinking and insect foraging, and having water nearby enhances their roosting site.

By providing a safe and suitable roost, you contribute to the conservation of these fascinating creatures and promote a healthy ecosystem in your surroundings.

Please note delivery will be around circa 3 weeks if not sooner.
