Product Details

How to protect bird boxes from predators

The Nest Box Protection Plate is the ultimate safeguard for your wooden nest boxes against predators. Crafted with precision and designed for effectiveness, this innovative solution protects woodpeckers, magpies, cats, squirrels, and other potential threats to nesting birds. Reinforcing the entrance hole makes it significantly more challenging for intruders to break or enlarge it, ensuring the safety and security of nesting birds and their young.

Not only does the Nest Box Protection Plate effectively deter predators, but it also provides versatility in hole size adjustment. Use it to reduce the size of an existing hole on your nest box, allowing you to attract a specific range of bird species according to your preferences.

Crafted with durability and functionality in mind, these copper plates are easy to install and come with fixing screws for added convenience. Available in 26mm and 32mm hole sizes, you can choose the perfect fit for your nest box and enjoy peace of mind knowing your feathered friends are safe and secure.

Despite its robust protection, the Nest Box Protection Plate maintains accessibility for parent birds, allowing them to enter and exit easily. This thoughtful design feature ensures that nesting activities proceed smoothly while providing peace of mind for bird enthusiasts.
