This 45mm hole nest box will be used by Starlings and can help support your local population of this red list species.
Constructed from a mix of concrete and wood fibres, WoodStone® nest boxes safeguard against attacks from predators including woodpeckers, cats and squirrels. The material insulates the nest which creates 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.
Starlings are an important natural predator of chafer beetles and crane flies, and can be encouraged by turf managers as part of an integrated approach to pest management (IPM). Their narrow beaks facilitate feeding on these pests whilst causing minimal damage to the turf and promoting natural aeration of the surface.
We recommend using aluminium nails to hang due to the weight of the nest box and to limit any damage caused to trees.
Every WoodStone® nest box is guaranteed for 10 years.
