    Have seen microbats, intend putting up nest boxes.
    Are they territorial & what spacing between boxes?

    Regards, Ken

      Hi Ken,
      Micro bats aren’t territorial. In fact, several species can share the same box. Even huntsman spiders and geckos share the same space. They could teach us a thing or two how to live together. Put up more than one box. They like to move between boxes. Keeps the predators guessing???
      Have fun.
