Welcome To Bioquip – biological equipment specialists
Bioquip supply a range of the equipment for amateur and professional ecologist and naturalist. Products include the popular Schwegler Wood Crete Nest-boxes, moth traps, nets, pond-dipping equipment, bat detectors, lamps and generators.
Schwegler nest boxes
We have been so impressed with the quality of the Schwegler boxes that we supply them as part of the nature conservation mitigation packages we offer local authorities and other clients. We carry all the popular models in stock, but are able to obtain any product in Schwegler range.
Nest boxes are one of the most effective ways of helping birds, bats and insects. The loss of mature trees and lack of natural sites means that finding nesting sites is becoming increasingly difficult for some species. Provision of nest boxes in gardens and woodlands is an easy and fun way to help.
Schwegler boxes offer the ultimate in nest-box design. Made from a mix of sawdust, concrete and clay, they are impervious to weather and marauding predators and also have excellent insulation properties. In addition they are rot proof and have an anticipated life of 25 years or more.
Flat pack self-assembly nest boxes
Our timber nest boxes are available in a Flat Pack Form with all the parts such as nails and plastic included along with mounting ties. We use 18mm exterior grade plywood. Entrance and mounting holes are pre-drilled removing the need for power tools or saws. All boxes come pre-treated and include assembly instructions.
Our moth traps come complete with electrics wired up ready to use once you have added a 13amp plug. All electrics are supplied in an IP56 waterproof control box. We offer “Skinner” type, Robinson, Heath and the new Johnson Traps.
Skinner Traps are manufactured from exterior grade plywood and receive one coat each of primer and undercoat and two coats of gloss paint prior to despatch.
Robinson Traps are the traditional design and offer the ultimate trap for capture retention.
Heath Traps are ideal for use when trapping away from a mains supply as they operate off a 12v power supply.
The new Johnson Traps are extremely lightweight, made from a fine mesh and supported by metal rods – they are ideal for overseas travel.
