 water-based paint  Screwed Construction  From a sustainable source  FSC certified wood

  • The Conservation Bat Box has twin vertical chambers with the angled cut-away front showing ladder style grooves. This allows the bat to climb into the preferred chamber.
  • Designed for multi-species, the sections may access inspection by licensed bat workers via the hinged roof secured by a removable screw. (Earlier variant also had a brass catch).
  • It is handmade from untreated solid, high quality, durable FSC certified timber which provides longevity and excellent insulation.
  • Bats are susceptible to smell and will be deterred by any treatments applied.
  • Decorative front finish, water-based paint only.
  • Designed to allow bat droppings to fall to the floor. Therefore, the bat box doesn't require a licenced bat worker for cleaning.
  • Dimensions: 44.4 x 25 x 14.5 cm
  • Weight: 2.4kg

Siting

  • Site the Conservation Bat Box high up, between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree.
  • Hang using the pre-drilled recycled plastic hanger.
  • The ideal aspect is North, South West or South East., so the box receives only part sun during the day.
  • If it is on an existing feeding or flight route, you are more likely to get an occupation.
  • It is illegal for any member of the public to disturb a roost, handle or kill any bat. Bat boxes, therefore, must only be inspected by licensed bat workers. 
  • However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance, look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt.

Within Ireland, all my deliveries are made by An Post Courier service. Soon, all their vehicles will be electric vehicles and thus, the use of fossil fuels is hugely reduced in the delivery of my orders within Ireland. Packaging, where possible is completely compostable.

 


Spring bulbs vary in cost depending on the time of year. Ordering early in the year means that I can supply them at a better price. These will become more expensive as we get closer to the autumn.

In short, by pre-ordering spring flowering bulbs,

  • we save money and
