Bat Detectors
Choosing the best bat detector for you
There are now so many different bat detectors available that you can be forgiven for being a little unsure about which ones would be the best option for you.

The bat detector you choose should be the one that works the way you want it to and gives you the results you need.

If you're a professional ecologist doing work for clients, the bat detector you choose must be good enough for the job and give you good quality results.

There's no point trying to save a few quid by buying something cheaper, if it doesn't do what you need it to do.

Scroll down the page and I'll help you to make your choice. If you want more information about bat detectors and accessories just call me on 0333 9000 927 (leave a message if I don't answer and I'll call you back).
