Bat boxes in Großgründlach

The bat cave has been developed specifically for bats. It is constructed in accordance with the latest findings, has been used successfully in practice for years and offers ideal protection against small predators, draughts and brightness. This type is particularly suitable for use in forests and parks.

The flat bat box can be used even on extremely steep slopes. The animals' excrement can be removed by opening the bottom of the flat box. However, the flat box can also be opened to carry out a check. In order to compensate for temperature fluctuations in the spring and autumn, it has a roughened wooden rear wall made of durable wood. The animals can thus stay next to the cooler wood concrete or the warmer wooden wall, depending on the weather.
