Over 60 species of micro-bats are found throughout Australia. Many of these bats rely on natural hollows, found in living or dead trees, as roost sites.
The typical species you may attract to the Bat Box include Lesser Long-eared, Gould’s Wattle, Chocolate Wattle, Inland Broad-nosed and other similar sized bats.
This wildlife/roost box provides an ideal alternative to Southern free-tail bat on box a natural hollow for small micro-bats, where such resources are lacking.
The bat Box is constructed of structural ply, obtained from sustainable sources.
N.B. A number of microbats are known to carry viruses, which could potentially be transferred to humans if appropriate cautions are not taken. It is advisable not handle any bats. Iif sick, injured or disoriented animals are encountered, please call a bat/wildlife rescue organisation.
The box comes in kit form to reduce the cost and allow you greater involvement, and potential satisfaction, in completing the nest box yourself.
