A suitable roosting and breeding sites for various insect-eating bat species.
Mounted on a pole and if possible close to the waters edge to allow bats to control your insect populations.
Bats are a sort of ‘bug police’: they fly around and catch insects using a process called echolocation to find their insect meals. They make high-pitched sounds that bounce off objects and return to the bat as echoes. Bats in flight can distinguish the difference in sound between a tree, your head, and a mosquito! They reduce pests naturally, reducing the need for pesticide usage and thereby helping to make our water and earth cleaner.
Note: These bat boxes can ONLY be installed on a gum pole. The diameter needs to be 75 - 100mm.
