Metal hole protectors are beneficial for nest boxes as they prevent the enlarging of wooden nest box entrance holes caused by pecking or gnawing. Many bird species prefer smaller entrance holes, such as the Tit family, so preventing them from enlarging keeps the nest box a suitable shelter for your feathered friends.
Squirrels, woodpeckers and small mammals will damage unprotected entrance holes. For example, they attempt to enter the box for nesting or, in some cases, to predate on the eggs and fledglings of small birds. As a result, damaging the nest box or, at worst, destroying broods.
Fix this pre-drilled and ready-to-fit hole protector to your nest box using the 2 stainless steel 3mm/12mm screws included in any wooden nest box.
Dimensions: 0.1 x 4.6 x 4.6 cm
