Celler Credo, in collaboration with the Granollers Natural Science Museum and the Ebro Delta Natural Park, have designed a crate with a dual function: first as a wine case and second as a bat roost.
For the first time, this project makes it possible to reuse wine cases by transforming them into homes for bats.
Thanks to their ability to consume 600 to 1,200 insects an hour during periods of peak activity, bats are considered excellent natural predators. When integrated into the vineyard ecosystem, they become great allies for controlling insect pests. They play a particularly important role in combating the European grapevine moth (Lobesia botrana), an insect that lays its eggs in the skin of the fruit and bores holes in the grapes to feed. Bats, nocturnal fliers like the moth, can be an effective natural means of controlling the population of this pest.
