To mitigate and compensate for starlings, several facilities are often installed. These can be nest boxes but also so-called starling nesting boxes. A loft has the great advantage of not creating pollution on the facade which is quite often the case with starlings when they nest in nest boxes on or in the facade.

This loft provides 9 nest boxes under one roof, allowing multiple pairs of starlings to use it. The loft is also enjoyed by house and ring sparrows

The til is constructed of a metal frame finished with exterior plywood and treated with a coat of Ecolabel paint, color RAL 9010. The roof has a layer of black roofing slate. The roof structure has an extra roof for ventilation so it does not get as hot in the nest boxes in hot weather.

If properly placed, the lift will withstand at least wind force 10.

A starling shelter can be placed anywhere starlings are prevalent or desired. This til can also provide new breeding sites on new construction sites.

This til comes with a galvanized metal thick-walled mast 6 meters in length. The mast features a ground piece for extra stable and secure placement.

  • With the lift also comes the means to place the lift such as bags of quick concrete and means to keep the lift stable for the first few days after placement.
  • Place the mast at least 1 to 1.5 meters deep in the ground. This depends on the soil conditions at the site.
  • To protect the loft from vandalism, it is advisable to establish prickly vegetation around the loft.
  • If desired, we can provide full installation services. Contact us for options.

The nest boxes in the loft can be opened at the front for maintenance. To do this, 2 screws in the front panels must be removed. Furthermore, the til requires no maintenance. If necessary, the head of til can be repainted after a few years. Starlings use the loft year-round. So even in the winter months.
