SPECIAL OFFER - NOW £19.99 (WAS £24.99)

Robust Wooden Bat Roosting House by CJ Wildlife. Black painted FSC plywood with bat motif.

This bat house is equipped with an extended ridged backboard, allowing the bats to climb in and roost more easily.

Providing a purpose-made Bat Box will help the bats in your area find a safe place to roost, which is much needed throughout the year. This solid wooden bat box provides good insulation, a ridged entry and roosting wall and very easy access through a 20mm slot across the bottom of the box.

Can be installed on a house or tree, as high as possible to encourage the bats to see it as a safe place. Site the bat box in a sheltered,area, protected from the wind, with a clear flight path to the box.

Dimensions: 42cm high x 28cm wide x 7cm deep externally overall. Includes rawlplugs and screw fixings.

Guidance to site your Bat Box:
Place your Bat Box free from obstructions, like trees and fences, to give at least 20ft of clear open space around the box. This will allow the bats to locate the house and easily fly in and out of it. Place it on a building or barn at least 15ft high if possible and facing southeast for maximum exposure to sunlight. Correct placing of your bat box will determine its internal temperature and this is important to avoid large changes in temperature.

The Flyte Bat Box to encourage small roosting bats to breed and keep them safe.

NEW PRODUCT FROM THE FLYTE SO FANCY WORKSHOP FOR 2020.

When so many bat roosts are being damaged or destroyed annually (it is against the law by the way to destroy a Bat colony), by agricultural practices or change of building usage, then providing a purpose made Bat Roosting Box will help these tiny creatures survive.

The Flyte Wooden Bat Box is ideal for the small Pipistrelle Bats, the UKs most common bat, and it can accommodate up to 12 bats. These small mammals are very sociable creatures and prefer to live in colonies. Different Bats need different boxes and the Flyte Bat Box is ideal for smaller bat species. Place several boxes on a building to create a large colony.

At the bottom of the box there is a grooved ‘landing ramp’ or ladder which carries into the box to give their claws purchase and equally, internally, the grooves will provide extra grip. Bats like well insulated boxes to maintain a more constant temperature and humidity but do not like draughts so our Bat Box has an entrance slit at the bottom which is just wide enough for bats but will keep out any predators. The box has a brass-hinged lid for access to the inside (remember, only if unoccupied).

Material: Untreated Swedish Redwood from an FSC Certified supplier; Colours: Chestnut Brown or Pale Green (animal safe nano-technology coating). Size overall: 35.5cm H x 14.5cm W x 14.5cm D; Actual Box: 20cm H x 14.5cm W x 9.5cm D. Landing ramp is 10cm H x 14.5cm W. Weight: approx. 2kg.

Guidance for Siting your Bat Box
Your Bat Box should be mounted quite high on a building in a sheltered sunny spot. Pre-drilled holes for mounting are placed top and bottom of the back timber.

Mount your Flyte Bat Box on a wall/building free from obstructions, like trees and fences, to give at least 20ft of open space around the box. Some foliage around the box is not a problem but it needs a site that will allow the bats to locate the house and easily fly in and out of it. Place it on a building or barn at least 12ft-15ft high, sheltered from strong winds and facing southeast-southwest for maximum exposure to sunlight.

When mounting at such a height please consider your own safety. When placing on buildings, mount as close to the eaves as possible and if there are hedges or tree lines nearby this will help the bats to navigate to the box. Be patient, it may take several months for the Bats to find a new home. To inspect the box, check first whether it is occupied, look for small pellet droppings and urine stains on the landing ramp.

Correct placing of your bat box will help to control its internal temperature, which is important to avoid large variations in temperature as well as making the roosting bats feel secure. Once mounted an occupied Bat Box should not be opened, it is against the law without a licence to do this.

Bat Facts
The Bat Conservation Trust, and many other groups, are working hard to ensure the survival of these intriguing nocturnal creatures.

Pipistrelles are one of the UK’s smallest and most common Bat species, so tiny they could fit in a matchbox, and weigh barely 7 grams. But even our largest native bats like the Noctule, weighing in at 30-40g, is no bigger than the palm of your hand.

National Trust Hedberg Wooden Hedgehog House

Ref: CJW-914600111


Price: 49.99 (Including VAT at 20%)


Quantity:  




The National Trust Hedberg Hedgehog House has lots of internal space for the hedgehogs to build nice warm hibernation nests or, to provide a snug, secure space for females to give birth and nurse their young - and they look good too.

Place the box in a secluded corner and cover with soil or leaves to boost the chances of the box being used. Hedgehogs like to nest under sheds, hedges and brushwood, but this hedgehog house offers an excellent alternative. Hedgehogs will use the house for hibernation between November and mid-March.

Hedgehog houses should be placed in a quiet part of the garden with some weather protection, such as against a wall, under a bush or under an outbuilding (avoiding areas that flood). To increase the chances of habitation, part-fill the nest chamber with dried leaves. Do not disturb the box while occupied.

The entrance to this hedgehog house is a long narrow passage leading to a more spacious residence. This long tunnel entrance makes it more difficult for predators to reach the hedgehog. The roof lifts off for seasonal cleaning and the tunnel slides back into the house for storage.

Dimensions: 38cm wide x 39cm deep (59cm incl tunnel) x 32cm high. Made from FSC untreated pine. Ready assembled.
