without additional inspection hatch
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 Noctule Bats.
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.
