Woodstone® Build-in House Sparrow Nest Box (EU)
This building block is suitable for house sparrows, but it is also inhabited by tits. There are two nest chambers in this unit. House sparrows also breed in colonies, so we recommend siting a number of boxes together.
The build-in block for sparrows can be integrated in new buildings or building renovations. The nest box (screws included) should preferably be mounted on a facade under the edge of the roof or gutter. It can also be mounted freely on a wall, at least 3m high. When installed in a cavity wall, the thermal insulation should run behind the wall. If you need to remove heat insulation, cut it generously around the box. In this case, fill the space behind the box with hard insulation material. The box should not hang in the sun all day. Nesting material is not required.
If the building blocks are easily accessible, the nests can be removed after the breeding season. Simply turn the screw hook at the front by 180 degrees and remove the front.
