We have recently completed a job where we needed to relocate a maternity roost of soprano pipistrelles, (with a peak count of 196) away from public areas of a shared building. The pips were roosting in the soffit boxes and due to the large numbers of bats, urine was running down the internal walls of the building causing a health and safety concern to the residents. We decided on a slightly different approach and commissioned a local carpenter, Tony at TTT Carpentry,  to build and install two bespoke, self cleaning soffit boxes and locate them away from the windows. Were all very excited to monitor the site this summer and hope the sop pips love it as much as we do. www.tttcarpentry.co.uk
