Regular price R 2,000.00


EcoSolutions has been involved in the installation of 200 Bat hotels on Citrus farms in the Western Cape and another 75 through a project run by the University of Levubu on Macadamia farms in Limpopo Province to encourage the bat populations in the vicinity.

The financial benefit of having a thriving bat population within orchards has been found to be unmeasurable.

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.

Each box can house between 150-300 bats.
