Our Pole Mounted Bat Boxes are an ideal solution when there is no suitable building or tree available on which to mount the bat box. They can also be used to ensure that box gets maximum solar gain by placing it in an unshaded spot or if you want to position the bat box on a hedgerow. The Pole Mounted Bat Boxes use our standard Roost Maternity or Large Colony Bat Boxes with the addition of fixing rails which enable them to be securely fixed to the 4m aluminium pole. Alternatively if you have a telegraph pole or similar already installed we can supply the boxes with rails and metal bands which allow you to fix them to poles up to 900mm circumference. We offer both our Roost Maternity Bat Box and Large Colony Bat Box as either single boxes or double boxes mounted back to back on the same aluminium pole. The back to back boxes have the advantage that the two boxes will differ in solar gain and resultant thermal regimes. Bats can then choose the box which offers the optimal conditions and are likely to vary which box they use through the year.

To securely install your Pole Mounted Bat Box usually requires around 1m of the pole to be buried below ground, however we would always advise you consult your builder or structural engineer as ground conditions vary from site to site. Our standard Pole Mounted Bat Boxes come with a 4m pole, if you require other pole lengths please get in touch.

For ease of installation and shipping, the pole will be dispatched separately from the bat box and bracket. Apart from erecting the pole, the only tool needed is a spanner (or a screwdriver for the metal band version) to fix the boxes onto the pole.
