Adding a Bat Box to your garden increases biodiversity. Bats are very useful creatures; they can eat up to 3000 mosquitoes, moths, beetles and other insects a night. They mainly rest in groups, which also makes them vulnerable. Because of the increasingly efficient insulation of homes, its become more and more difficult for bats to find a place to live. This bat box offers a variety of smaller bat species an ideal place to live. Thanks to the special notches in the wood of the bat box, these flying mammals have a better grip and can enter the box via this ladder more easily. A good place to hang the box is on a facade or on a mature tree about 3 to 5 meters high. The box should be somewhat sheltered from rain and wind not in full sunlight and sited away from night light sources with clear access.
