The MW-01 bat box is based on the flat box design by Erik Korsten (Zoogdiervereniging) and is characterized by three compartments located behind each other. These compartments are connected with eachother so bats can move from one compartment to the other. Due to the size of the box andthe presence of different compartments the box offers more buffering of heat compared to traditional boxes with only one compartment. That makes the MW01 especially suited as maternity box.
This type of box can be mounted on a wall, this will create an extra compartment between the wall and the box.
The box is suitable for a number of species amongst which Pippistrelle (see table below). What species will occupy the box strongly depends on the species richness of the surrounding and the location of the box. The box is suitable as a maternity residence but in mild winters can also be used as a hiding place.
|TYPE OF RESIDENCE||SUITABLE FOR|
|On buildings||maternity, summer, mating||Pippistrelle Bat|
|and hide||Nathusius's Pipistrelle Bat|
|Soprano Pipistrelle Bat|
The standard measures of the box is about 96 x 73 cm.
It is also possible to have the boxes made in a different sizing, or with more or less compartments. Another color is also possible. It can also be arranged, by a small adjustment, to link boxes together so a larger maternity box is created. Please contact us for this.
The MW01 is made of concrete plywood. This is a strong type of plywood of which the plates are glues together in a watertight way. The concrete plywood is also coated with phenolic coating. This ia a hard, smooth and watertight coating that makes the material more sustainable to damage and is more durable. The outside of the box is provided with a brown coating. Further treatment of the MW01 box is not neccessary.
On the inside of the concrete plywood there are 5mm thick grooves, that make it a surface with a lot of grip for the bats. In this way they can move easily through the bat box.
At the bottom site of the box there is a hatch that can be used for inspection and cleaning of the bat box.
Placement and Assembly
The MW01 can be attached to walls by using an clever hanging system. The box shold be place at least 4 to 5 meters high. Preferably on a sunny spot without any chance of rain getting in. Do not place the box under of in proximity of artificial lights. It is recommended to place several bat boxes together, prefarably their entrances placed in different directions. Plugs and screws are included.

|70 x 80 cm x 12 cm, depth of chambers: 2 to 2,5 cm|
|Entrance||approx. 30 mm|
|Material||Concrete plywood, rvs hinges and screws|
Due to the different compartments the MW01 is suitable to be placed on a wall as a maternity residence. It is fairly similar to the MW02 (with backside) and can be compared to the Schwegler maternity boxes like 1FTH and 2FTH.
