For sure Dotty, not suggesting any of the 'house' I posted, Just for interest. I am sure SANParks have the experience in implementing them.

If I was a bad bat I would try out a new house for sure instead getting hit by a fan or listen to scary people at night.

Hi dotty I think if a bat project is going to be started it will be done according the rules. Imagine taking a bat house up to KTP and KTP is already busy building .... ;)

If any woodworking forumite picks up his chisel & plane, we will direct him (or her) to the procedure. :thumbs_up:

But if nobody volunteers, the procedure is irrelevant. :wink:

Maybe some of us on this thread would be willing to donate to a project for a woodworking forumite. :hmz: If it would fly, then Dotty's link would be in business. :clap:

Thanks all :wink: it was just a reminder ..... perhaps the Virtual Honorary Rangers (VHR@SANParks.org) with the help and advice of KG could help you all get the bat problem solved

I love the bats and not to keen on seeing them disappear. As long as they stay near by.

Willing to contribute any manner I can BB.

Step 1 would be to find out if permission is required to put up bat houses in KTP. Maybe Dotty could find out please.
Step 2 would be for the the woodworker(s) to volunteer.
Step 3 get VHR approval
Step 4 ask for forumite funding
Step 5 build the bat house(s) from the funding
Step 6 deliver the house(s) to KTP
Step 7 site them
Step 8 repeat from step 4 until all bats housed.

Morning All

Well this sounds good, but please bear this in mind:

I am in the building industry (Architect) so have contact with a wide range of woodworkers / joiners / supplies. Let talk before going into it.

Trust Dotty will plot the way forward for us ?

I see that the huts at Nossob and Mata Mata have ceilings. Does that help in terms of bats flying around inside the huts? I would think that this problem would be more common in the huts with the thatch roofs.
