Wildlife World bat habitat

by | Apr 4, 2016 | Products | 0 comments

Wildlife World has partnered with the Vincent Wildlife Trust to produce a new bat habitat and roosting site.

The Vincent Pro Bat Box has been created to increase the number of available habitats for a wide range of bat species. It is designed by Colin J Morris, one of the UK?s leading bat researchers, and has undergone extensive testing and comparative trials to prove ?excellent performance and occupancy rates with at least seven local bat species?.

A spokesperson for Wildlife World said: ?The Vincent Pro Bat Box is set aside from other similar products as it is specially designed with a cluster zone and three vertical entrance chambers in various sizes to attract a range of bat species.

?The box is also designed to offer a rough landing surface and ladder, making it particularly easy for all bat species to access and use. It requires minimal cleaning as droppings are forced to drop to the ground through the three entrance gaps.?

They continued: ?As bats do not build their own roosting sites, it is important that all manufactured bat boxes are created to offer a durable and practical site for bats to use all year round. For this reason, Wildlife World have painted the chamber roof and elevation panel black to block light and absorb heat to offer a warm breeding site for female bats during the summer.

?The box can also be moved and placed in a cooler area to provide a suitable roosting site for hibernating bats in the winter months.?

The Vincent Wildlife Trust has been pioneering mammal conservation for 40 years, and manages 40 ?priority? bat roosts, many of which have international significance. The organisation also undertakes surveys to help identify the current status of mammal species that are considered under threat or concern.
