Plywood Bat Box
This bat house is equipped with an extended backboard with a special wire mesh, allowing the bats to climb more easily.
There are 17 species of bats regularly occurring in the UK [9 in ROI], with the number of species likely to be present in an area decreasing in the north and with height above sea level. Although bats are frequently seen in gardens, many species are in decline due in part to a loss of habitat.
You can help bats by providing additional roosting spaces in the form of bat boxes, and by providing extra food by gardening in a way which favours bats.
For best results, site your bat box:
It can take a while for bats to take up residence in a new bat box. As a general rule if it hasn't been used after three years, try relocating.
