VV Noctule Bat
The BAT Hibernation Box is based on the interior of the 1FS with the triple and corrugated wooden boards as
clinging option and crevice roost.
However, in addition, with its patented double-panel system with several insulation layers, the 1FW also offers
unsurpassed insulation in the winter. Despite this, the breathable material and forced ventilation ensure safe
hibernation of Bats.
Equally suitable as a nursery roost and for colony formation in the summer. The front panel is opened without the
clinging panels; these can then be removed separately after the front panel has been opened. This ensures easier
handling. As this roost is also a very popular place for larger Bat colonies to occupy, it is absolutely important to
remove droppings from this nest box and to clean it at least once or twice a year. This makes this box an ideal
colony roost all-year round. However, the Bat Box should not be opened during the winter months, in order to avoid
extreme temperature fluctuations in the interior.
Material SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.
Interior design: Removable crevice roost made of long-term resistant, corrugated wooden boards. There is a
special clinging area inside the roof. Front panel with protection against falling out.
Installation: Tree and forestry-compatible using Aluminium Nails and two C-Blocks with simultaneous protection
against falling out on the hanger and on the front panel. Optimum hanging height at least 3 metres. A clear entrance
accelerates settlement success.
Includes: 1FW, Hanger, two Mounting Blocks, Aluminium Nails and instructions for use.
Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.
This type of box is readily used for forming large colonies, especially by Common Noctule Bats, Daubenton's Bats
and Brown Long-Eared Bats. Nursery roosts with between 70 and 100 animals (including Noctule Bats) are common.
Thanks to the large interior and the integrated clinging options, for large numbers of individuals, this type of box is very
attractive for forming nursery roosts and for rearing young. The 1FS has been used extremely successfully in Germany
and abroad for decades. Regular removal of the droppings is recommended in case of high occupancy figures. It is also
useful for estimating the occupancy and acceptance of the box. The box is suitable as a summer and temporary roost.
We recommend the Type 1FW for overwintering or hibernation.
Interior design: The front panel consists of triple corrugated wooden boards. On the inside of the roof there is a
special clinging panel with insulated mesh, where Bats find optimum clinging and clutching/clawing sites. Removable front panel for inspection and cleaning.
Hanger: Tree and forestry-compatible Aluminium Nails and C-Block.
Includes: 1FS incl. Hanger with Mounting Block and Aluminium Nails.
