Help provide safe shelter for the bat population, with this large wooden roosting box
As well as being one of the most threatened types of mammal in Britain, Bats are also among the most misunderstood. Far from being nasty, dangerous animals, they are attractive small, furry insect eaters who need all the help they can get, and in return they will help to control a large range of garden insects.
Bats need a range of roosting sites, including summer daytime roosts, winter hibernation nests and breeding sites. You can help them find a suitable roost by putting up a simple bat box.
Bats particularly need help as many of their roosting sites have been lost during recent years with urban development and encroachment on their natural habitat spaces. This large box is therefore perfect for bat families as the narrow entrance slot and strong timber will help to discourage predators and provide a safe space. It also features a landing strip for the bats to climb in and out of their custom made shelter.When your bat box is sited, keep an eye out for common pipistrelles - they are one of our smallest bats, weighing the same as 10 paperclips and are small enough to fit in a matchbox!
