Bat Box Toscana – House for Bats
What bat boxes are: Wooden houses, ready to use, specially designed to offer shelter to our friends bats, predators of mosquitoes.
What they are for: bats are used to protect ourselves from mosquitoes, naturally maintaining the balance of nature.
Measurements: height cm.48 x width cm.30 x thickness cm.5.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The Blitzen bat box is designed and built to attract bats naturally.
The bat box is provided with a hole for hanging ; it is delivered already assembled with instructions for positioning.
It’s purpose? Approaching bats to your home, so that during the night their range of action can cover your home.
Our bat box is equipped with internal grips and lateral micro-cracks which increase the internal ventilation. Without air recirculation, in fact, the bat would immediately abandon the shelter.
The bat box is entirely handmade in marine pine plywood. The nails, all non-toxic and anti-rust, are specially selected and come from Japan and the United States. During assembly, all parts are smoothed by hand and glued with odorless glue, then fixed with anti-rust nails. The marine plywood of spruce is rounded and polished to guarantee a very long life. At the end of the process, the Blitzen Original brand is imprinted.
WHEN TO PLACE A BAT BOX
Bat Boxes can be placed all year round, even when bats are hibernating. If the box is placed before the end of hibernation, in fact, it will integrate more to the surrounding environment. We have observed that many of our boxes have been inhabited by young specimens from April to December; the same bats are back in the houses year after year.
WHO CHOSE BLITZEN BAT BOX
The city of Sacile, next to the Alps, chose Bltzen to shelter the bats of its territory.
We are proud that a public park, the Consorzio Parco delle Biodiversità Del Lura in Codorago, near Como, has also chosen our bat boxes to increase the population of bats. Thank you!
Very glad that even the Municipality of San Mauro Torinese has chosen the Blitzen Original bat boxes to defend against mosquitoes.
Our Bat Boxes are inhabited by lots of happy bats all over Europe.
