>>> with additional inspection hatch
If increased inspection frequency is planned for These boxes, we recommend the 3FF model with additional inspection hatch.
Thanks to the hatch, the whole interior can be inspected with a mirror or torch.
In the version without hatch the interior cannot be examined completely without opening the front panel.
In order to satisfy current practical requirements (self-cleaning, universal use, easy inspection) and even greater
adaptation to the general and regional needs of the individual species, the new self-cleaning SCHWEGLER Flat
Bat Colony Box 3FF (with and without inspection hatch) has been developed on the basis of the tried and tested
SCHWEGLER Flat Bat Box 1FF.
Soprano Pipistrelle Bats with an additional, larger hanging space for species that tend to roost in caves, such as
At the same time, it is possible to move between the hanging zones internally, for example, to adjust to weather-induced changes.
Depending on the temperature the animals can vary the level at which they hang, or in cold weather they can move more closely together in the roost and on hot days there is sufficient space for them to spread
themselves or move apart accordingly within the 3FF to achieve an interior climate that is favourable for them.
The 3FF also provides sufficient space for larger groups of female Bats, which convene in so-called nursery roosts.
If inspections are necessary, for example, for functional or scientific reasons, we recommend Version 3FF with inspection hatch.
In the late summer the enlarged interior volume is an advantage, especially as a transition and mating roost.
In Central Europe the 3FF is an excellent all-purpose roost for a large number of species, which takes into account the changing
needs of the animals during the Bat year (except for hibernation; special overwintering boxes are used for this, e.g.
SCHWEGLER 1FW, 1WQ, etc.).
The 3FF is self-cleaning, i.e. the Bat droppings can fall out freely from the underside without blocking the entrance if the
box is densely occupied.
On the one hand, the special design of the entrance slot prevents excessive incident light and
draughts, and on the other it also enables pregnant animals to access the box safely.
