Vivara Pro Seville WoodStone Nest Box with 32mm Oval Hole

About this product

These attractive nestboxes are manufactured from WoodStone which is a mix of concrete and FSC certified wood fibres. Unlike a traditional wooden nest box, these boxes will not rot away or deteriorate unlike many wooden boxes and are guaranteed for 10 years. This robust material safeguards against attacks from predators such as woodpeckers, cats and squirrels, whilst also providing a well insulated interior with a more consistent internal temperature than an ordinary wooden box. This is especially important during the breeding season and ensures that young birds have a greater chance of survival. 

These 32mm oval hole nest boxes are suitable for blue tits, tree sparrows, great tits, crested tits, nuthatches, coal tits and pied flycatchers. The oval hole is particularly favoured by house sparrows and redstarts, who will use the larger hole to perch to defend their nests from predators and rivals. Boxes are available in brown, green or grey to complement both natural woodland and garden settings.

The best height for your nest box is between 1.5m and 3m high, and should be sited higher if your area has a particularly high cat population. It is recommended that aluminium nails are used to hang the nest boxes due to the weight and to reduce the damage caused to trees.

These nest boxes have a removable front panel for easy cleaning. Although birds will clean their own nest boxes before nesting, cleaning the boxes out at the end of each breeding season may encourage them to be used again in future years, as it reduces parasites. The nesting time of birds varies from species to species so we suggest you wait until October when the last of the birds will have left before cleaning. The nest may come out easily but if there are any deposits scrape them out. We recommend using hot water rather than chemicals to remove any parasites that remain. Take care when opening your nest box as other species such as bats, wasps and bumblebees may have started to use the nest.
