The best fertilizer is created at night – bat's guano
Bat's guano is a universal organic fertilizer, collecting from the local sources in Slovakia. According analysis the guano composes from 15% nitrogen, 1% phosphorus, 2% kalium (bat colony in Ratková, 2004). According to the experience from abroad the guano is ideal for indoor plants, vegetables, fruit trees, flowers, lawn and ornamental plants.

The way of use:
Can be applied as the guano solution (2-6 soup spoons/ 4 liters water), as leaf nutrition, for composting, for soil mixtures.
20–25 kg/100 quadrat meter of vegetables or flowers, 10–25 kg/100 quadrat meter of fruit trees, , 1 soup spoon/liter of water for indoor plants.
We recommend a voluntary contribution cca 20 EUR/for a sack (cca 10 - 30 kg according to the moisture of the guano), it is up to agreement. The contribution will be used for the maintenance and repairs of churches with occurrence of the attic colonies that produce guano. On this way, we can incredibly increase the chance for bats to use the churches in a sustainable way.
