Q.What tools do I need to assemble the box?
A. All you need is a number 2 Phillips head screw driver (standard cross point)
Q. Do I need anything else to assemble the nest box?
A. No everything is supplied in the box apart from the screwdriver.
Q. How long will my box last?
A. It depends on the conditions that the nest box is subjected to. We would expect that this box should give good service for 10 to 15 years.
Q. Do I need to glue the box together?
A. No. Most people feel better about gluing it together as this is what has been done for so long its become a force of habit. If you do glue the nest box together remember that it will mean that only the lid will be able to be replaced.
Q. Your boxes seem expensive. Why are there lots of other cheaper boxes out there?
A. As the saying goes "you get what you pay for" yes there are lots of other nest boxes out there cheaper.

If you have the skills, time, equipment and require some of the features we offer then we suggest you do a little research and make your own.
Q. Do I need to put anything in the box for the birds?
A. It is recommended by most bird experts to put a hand full of bark chips in the box once installed.
