How we pick our products
A bat box is a small wooden structure that can be mounted on the outside of your home or other building. It provides shelter for bats and protects them from predators, such as cats. Bats are very beneficial to people because they eat insects like mosquitoes, flies and beetles.

Bat Box: Frequently asked questions
What types of Bat Box are there and what determines a good product?
A good Bat Box is one that has a large entrance hole, and plenty of room inside for the bats to roost. The size of the box should be at least 12 inches high by 18 inches wide (30 cm x 45cm). If you have more than one bat colony in your area, make sure there are enough boxes so each group can claim its own territory.
Who should use a Bat Box?
Based on what criteria should you buy a Bat Box?
You need to look out for the size of the box. The bigger it is, more bats can live in there and you will get a better chance at catching mosquitoes around your home. Also make sure that they are made from quality materials so that they last longer than just one season.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Bat Box?
The main advantage of a bat box is that it provides an alternative roosting site for bats. This can be particularly important in urban areas where there are few natural sites available to them. Bat boxes also provide protection from predators and the weather, as well as insulation against temperature fluctuations during hibernation periods.
Bat boxes are not designed to attract large numbers of bats. They can be used as a supplement to other roost sites, but they cannot replace them. In addition, bat boxes must be checked and cleaned regularly by the homeowner or property manager in order for them to remain effective over time.
