Eco stocking fillers and last minute Christmas gifts

Batty about bats: Bat Houses
An unobtrusive box which is mounted under the eaves of the roof to provide a roosting and nesting site for various insect-eating bats.  Bats are an excellent ally in the control of pest insect species such as mosquitoes and moths and contribute greatly to your garden wildlife. Slimline bat boxes make a great Christmas gifts, with full installation instruction and fasteners. They are the ideal gift for the environmentally friendly loved one. These gifts can be collected from our offices, posted or delivered.

To place an order, please visit our online store.


Junior Scientist Kit
If you are looking for a stocking filler for kids between the ages of 6 to 13 - welcome to our Junior Scientist Series. The Junior Scientist Owl Pellet Dissection Kit contains 2 owl pellets, tweezers, probes, surgical gloves, a petri dish, a face mask, dissection instructions and a rodent skeleton key. The pellets are labelled with GPS coordinates which provide their collected location. Once the budding scientists have finished dissecting their pellets, they need to send us a picture of their dissection contents, along with their coordinate label. When school resumes, we will draw the name of one of our young scientists. The lucky winner's prize? An "Owl Release" at their school! EcoSolutions will build the pen, provide the owlets and supervise the release. Obviously, the winner will get to name the owlets. The Junior Scientist Owl Pellet Kit costs R100.00 each and can be collected from either our JHB or CT offices.

For our Cavity Breeding Friends: Barbet Logs
The nesting log is made from the stem of the Sisal plant. The soft and fibrous inside makes for an easy medium in which the Barbets and Woodpeckers can make a suitable nesting cavity.  All of our logs have simple information and installation instructions attached and can be collected from our offices, posted or delivered. 

A client had this to say… "Hi there EcoSolutions, I think your barbet logs are awesome. I give them to my kids to give to their teachers on the last day of school, I keep a few under the tree for surprise “pop in” Christmas visitors and I cannot tell you how often they have saved the day at that awkward “I forgot to buy Lucy a present” moment. We are now giving them out to our clients as corporate gifts and receive pics of both black collared and crested barbets in gratitude. I have included a few pics below, thank you” - Kerry Lyn Pollard.

Our box have a spotted eagle owl! We stay on a smallholding in the Chancliff area, Krugersdorp and discovered that our recently serviced owl box, has a long awaited inhabitant! So glad and thankful to have the privilege of sharing our piece of nature with hopefully a breading pair soon! Have to tell you the bats are also happily occupying their box!

Brilliant service from hugely knowledgeable installers at our home in Harties this morning. We are thrilled with our new bat and owl boxes and sure the residents of these will be too! Excellent to know that EcoSolutions also monitors numbers and patterns of the owls in perpetuity. Thank you!

Fantastic, thanks to all at Eco Solutions for your support and help with Strix (our injured owl) and the installations of the boxes and houses at Steyn City.
