Badger Sett Construction
Our badger setts are individually designed and constructed to compliment and enhance the surrounding physical features and area. We always work closely with the brief supplied by the supervising ecological consultant. Wherever possible, we use natural and untreated materials and the sett chambers are always covered with ungalvanised steel reinforcing mesh, to prevent unwanted disturbance. Sett entrances are landscaped using local materials such as fallen timber, scrub and other grass matter.Chambers are often built with open walling sections, which allow badgers that take up residence to easily extend the sett accommodation. Take a look at Badger Sett creations in our Badger Gallery.
Otter Holt Construction
The Herpetosure alliance have so far created a number of dual chamber, multi entrance Otter Holts. Expertly erected using sustainable materials, providing secure, insulated and inviting accomodation. These Holts are designed to provide optimal conditions for the mating Otter.
The Herpetosure Four Season Bat Box is designed as an all-year roosting solution. It has been made with varying levels of insulation allowing bats to move between the galleries, depending on ambient temperatures. The Herpetosure Four Seasons Bat Box is made from 98% natural and renewable materials with no solvents or glues to taint the internal atmosphere. Made out of Oak, and covered with Lead flashing and Cedar shingles this Herpetosure Bat Box is built for optimal weather proofing and longevity. Insulation is achieved using natural materials, such as compressed wool waste.
The New Herpetosure Heated Bat Box builds on the success of the Four Seasons Box and is designed for projects that require internal temperatures to be maintained between very specific parameters. By using innovative heating technology, internal temperatures can be maintaned very accuratly; ideal for particularly exposed sites or for maintaining optimal conditions during the breeding season.
