Battsenby's Wildlife Habitats
Battsenby's makes native bee hotels, micro-bat boxes and possum boxes. Native bee hotels provide habitat for some of WA's 800 different species of native bee, supporting indigenous insect populations and greatly improving pollination in your garden. Micro-bats, which are nocturnal and endemic to WA, are nature's insect controllers, with one tiny micro-bat able to eat up to 1000 mosquitos a night. A micro-bat colony in your garden or on the exterior of your house will hoover up aphids, beetles, mozzies and lots of other bad bugs. For permaculturalists, microbats are an essential part of any integrated pest management system. Possum boxes provide nesting habitat for possums, rather than in your roof space.
Habitats are made from recycled jarrah or jarrah destined for firewood, sustainable fallen timbers, bamboo canes and natural linseed oil.
