With this wooden shelter you contribute to the conservation of the bats, and you will also get a fertile, mosquito-free garden!
TU What against the housing shortage of the BATS!
The bat’s habitats such as caves, hollow trees, barns and attics are becoming increasingly rare. This is mainly the fault of man. Fortunately, however, the flying mammals also accept artificially created houses with great goodwill. They use it as week-room (nesting box) or summer-quarters (sleep place, day-hiding place), more rarely also as hibernation-help. That has advantages for you too: Since bats feed on flying insects, they provide a natural control of moths, beetles and mosquitoes.
DETAILS about the BAT’S QUARTERS
The spacious bat box measures 29x10x42 cm (LxWxH) and offers enough space for whole colonies and different species. The incubator has a 2 cm wide entry gap with landing surface at the bottom and grooves in the rear wall for better gripping. The Bat Hotel is visually captivating with its beautiful bat branding.
WHAT ARE GARDEN BENEFITS?
Thanks to the rear rail, you can attach the bat nesting box to the wall of the house (preferably under a eaves), to a tree or to the stable. Place it at least 4.50m above the ground to make it predator-proof. The best place is a half-shaded, noiseless place with a pond and night-flowering plants nearby. Grant the bats a clear approach path. You rarely have to clean the box, because the excrement can simply fall out of the opening – by the way, this is an excellent fertilizer for the vegetable patch! If the bat hotel is occupied, you should not disturb the animals under any circumstances.
🌻 Sufficient living space – The bat house serves as a shelter and sleeping place in summer. But it is also used for nesting and wintering. With Skojig’s bat nesting cave you can welcome the nocturnal animals in your garden all year round!
✅ For mosquito-free nights – bats are natural pest controllers and therefore extremely useful. Their excrement is also an excellent fertiliser. It is best to install several bat boxes, as the animals are very sociable and change their quarters frequently.
🌱 Proven Design – The Bat Hotel was designed according to the recommendations of the Nabu. In the box, which tapers towards the top, there is room for various large animals. Inside it is dark and draught-proof. The pine wood is rough, untreated and grooved – perfect for the little bat claws!
♻ A Rewarding Garden Accessory – The landing aid and the entrance slit allow the animals to find their hiding place at any time. Please do not disturb them – when they swarm out at dusk to search for food, the winged garden inhabitants provide wonderful observation opportunities!
💚 Nature Will Thank You – Plant protection products and dwindling habitats are a threat to bats. The bat nesting cave, made of weatherproof material, is the perfect solution if you want to contribute to environmental protection.
