These wooden sparrow boxes are the ideal solution for temporary mitigation of house sparrows.

This wooden surface-mounted sparrow box is suitable for temporary mitigation of house sparrow breeding sites. The nest box has the entrance opening on the front and can be combined with the NK MU 10 (entrance opening on the left) and the NK MU 12 (entrance opening on the right).

These three models each have their entrance opening on a different side. As a result, there is no disturbance if the nest boxes are placed a little closer together. Keep a minimum distance of 25 cm between nest boxes if this combination is made.

The nest box is also eagerly used by (cabbage) tits, for example. It is made of FSC exterior plywood. Installation is easy using the included plugs and screws.

The nest box meets all the requirements of the Bij12 House Sparrow Knowledge Document.

  • Preferably place the nest box with several together with a minimum horizontal and vertical spacing of 50 cm. If combined with the NK MU 10 and NK MU 12, this distance may be shorter. The minimum spacing is then 25 cm.
  • The boxes may be placed in all wind directions as long as the nest box with the entrance opening is not facing southwest and not hanging in sunlight all day. Ideal spots are directly under gutters or overhangs or at least 3 meters in height. Do not add nesting material.
  • Hanging the cabinet is easy with the included fasteners.

If desired, the hive can be cleaned after the breeding season (preferably during the winter months). This can be done by opening the door on the side of the nesting box.
