For mitigation and compensation of house martin nests, a house martin wall shelter is a good option. A walltil provides multiple artificial breeding sites. It also leaves plenty of room for house swallows to build natural nests at the loft. A wall-mounted colony can be created on the facade at a desired location.

A swallow walltil is most likely to be discovered and used if it is placed in close proximity to the existing colony. If there is no colony nearby, there is little chance of the loft being discovered. To increase the probability, lure sounds can be used. This seems to work somewhat but certainly offers no guarantee.

A total of nine artificial nests were pre-assembled. To make it extra attractive to swallows, a mud puddle can be constructed in the immediate vicinity. Swallows can collect mud here to reduce the nest entrance or build natural nests.

This til is constructed of a metal frame and finished with exterior plywood. It is treated with a coat of spray cork and an Ecolabel paint, color RAL 9010. The roof has a layer of black roofing slate.

  • A swale can be placed anywhere on facades. Preferred location is one where house swallows already nest. The wall lift comes with fasteners.
  • No nesting material needs to be added.
  • The wall lift can be installed by itself. It is also possible to have us install the til. Contact us for options.

The artificial nests cannot be taken away. If desired, some nesting material can be removed through the entrance opening. This is especially recommended if sparrows have been nesting in the nest bowls. Furthermore, the til requires no maintenance. If necessary, the walltil can be repainted after a few years.
