- The position of the bat box will depend very much on the area, the latitude, the average temperature, etc.
- Generally, it is recommended to install the nests in places with 5 to 7 hours of sunlight.
- Taking into account that the period of bat occupancy in the boxes (May - September) corresponds to the hottest in the year, it is advisable to install the nests facing South, or in areas protected from hihg-sun exposure. Otherwise, it is possible that the bat box reaches non-optimal temperatures for its colonisation.
