This set is the perfect way to make your garden bat friendly and includes a Wildlife World Original Bat Box and a pack of Wildflower Seeds to attract bats in to your very own garden.

Bats are in need of habitat as many of their roosting areas have been lost over recent years. This bat box offers two chambers and a valuable high capacity roost for a variety of species.

It will fit into any garden, woodland, or a house wall site. Made from solid, high quality, durable FSC certified timber it provides longevity and excellent insulation. The narrow entrance slot and strong timber help to discourage predators. A swing panel allows for cleaning, if required, by a licensed bat worker.

The bat box should be sited high up between 2.5m and 5m on a building or mature tree using the pre-drilled back plate hanger. The ideal aspect is so the box receives only part sun during the day – facing north, south west or south east. If it is on an existing feeding or flight route you are more likely to get occupation.

Bats are a schedule 1 protected species under the Wildlife & Countryside Act. It is illegal for any member of the public to disturb a roost, handle or kill any bat. Bat boxes therefore may only be inspected by a licensed bat worker. However, you can monitor your bat box without disturbance, look for mouse-sized droppings beneath the box as a clue to occupation or observe from a distance at dusk to see if bats are exiting the box to hunt.

A special mix of wildflower seeds for night-scented plants that are attracted to the flowers and in turn are food for bats. Seeds in each packet vary but will contain a mix of Bladder Campion, Red Campion, Night Catch-Fly, Corn Chamomile, Cornflower, Cowslip, Evening Primrose, Field Poppy, Fleabane, Foxglove, Great Mullelin, Corn Marigold, Soapwort, Viper's Bugloss and Yarrow.

Bats will feed over areas where they can hunt moths, midges, beetles, spiders and other insects. Our specially selected plant species are all attractive to these insects and can draw in bats to feed.

Seed sufficient for 2sqm area. Sow by 2023.
