Care & maintenance tips for your bird nesting boxes

Investing in a Riverside Woodcraft nest box is a step towards promoting local biodiversity and improving the aesthetic appeal of your garden. Proper care and maintenance are crucial to ensure your bird nesting boxes remain a comfortable and safe haven for your feathered friends. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your wooden nest boxes:

Regular Cleaning 

Annual Cleansing: It's advisable to clean out nest boxes once a year, usually in late autumn after the breeding season has ended, to remove old nests and any parasites.
Safe Cleaning Agents: Using boiling water as a natural cleaning agent eliminates parasites. Avoid using chemicals as they can be harmful to birds.

Inspection & Repair

Structural Integrity: Regularly inspect your nest boxes for wear and tear, especially before the breeding season begins. Ensure that the box is still securely attached to its location and that no sharp edges or broken parts could harm the birds.
Timely Repairs: If you notice any damage, repair it promptly. If the entrance hole has been enlarged, possibly by a predator or woodpecker, repair it to protect the nestlings.


Shaded Spot: Position your nest boxes in a shady spot to prevent overheating during summer and shield them from prevailing winds during winter.
Water Accessibility: Make sure fresh water is available nearby, especially during the summer, for birds to drink and bathe.
