Description

This squirrel box, made with advice from Stichting Eekhoornopvang Nederland, is used by the red squirrel as a maternity box but also as a hibernation box. The squirrel box has a wide entrance. This allows the squirrel to climb in and out with a young in its mouth. The extra edge gives the squirrels more support and grip as they enter the enclosure. Sometimes cave pigeons also use this closet. The cabinet is made of exterior plywood and finished with a water-based lacquer. The roof has a layer of roofing material.

  • Place the box at least 4 meters high in a tree in a quiet place in the woods, in a park or in the garden.
  • Do not place the squirrel box facing southwest because of rain intrusion and wind.
  • First mount the suspension bar to the back of the cabinet using the bolts and wing nuts provided. Then the squirrel box can be attached to the tree.
  • Adding nesting material is not necessary.

Before cleaning, always check carefully that the cabinet is not being used. Squirrels can use the hive year-round. If the squirrels are regular visitors to the closet, there is no need to clean the closet.

If burrowing pigeons or jackdaws have been nesting in the closet, it is wise to clean the closet and remove the nesting material during the winter months.
