We have bats in the locality and we want to site a box on a tall pine tree at the end of the garden. There is a large open field at the back and as we live on the Romney Marshes plenty of water around although we are going to site a small wildlife pond to encourage cadis, dragonfly etc.
My questions - is pine ok? does the smell put them off? the Marshes are very flat with prevailing southerly winds, does this affect the direction the box should face? could we put several boxes at differing heights and directions? is there an optimum or maximum number for one tree? would the accumulated faeces and urine from several boxes affect/kill the tree?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice.
I recommend contacting this organisation

I love bats, we sit in the conservatory at night to watch the bats swooping above us. I hope i can make a good one because I will be so chuffed with myself, and hopefully it may encourage more bats in my garden. Thankyou for the tips.
Me too....why I married one!
