Wooden clog designed as a nesting box for a blue tit or great tit.
Make sure the entrance opening is always to the north, northeast or east. This ensures that it hangs out of the wind, rain or sun.
Hang the yellow birdhouse clog with a farmer's motif in a quiet place. Most birds don't like too many activities going on around their nest.
You can also pay attention to the plants when hanging. When there is sufficient planting around the nest box, this helps the young birds with their first flight. This gives them sufficient support and provides good shelter. Always make sure that there are no branches or other obstacles in front of the entrance opening.
An ideal height for hanging a nest box is 2 to 2,5 meters from the ground. This ensures that cats and other predators cannot get directly to the nest box.
Placing several nest boxes next to each other is usually not a good idea. Make sure the nest boxes are at least three feet apart for different species. Nest boxes for the same type should be hung at least ten meters apart. Many bird species have a territory during the breeding season. When nesting places are placed too close together, this can lead to mutual arguments.
It is best to hang a nest box in the autumn. Most birds are already looking for good places for a nest. In addition, they can use to hide in the cupboards against the rain and the cold. Chances are that if a bird hibernates in your nest box, it will come by in the spring to build its nest.
Make sure that in September or October the inside of the yellow birdhouse clog with farmer's motif is cleaned with boiling water. If necessary, you can provide the outside with an extra layer of lacquer so that it can last for another year.
