A Nest Box for a dormouse is very similar to a Bird Nest Box , but with a difference, in that the main hole on a Dormouse Next box is at the rear of the box, as opposed to the front. When fitted to a tree, the Dormouse enters and exits from the rear, making the nest safe from predators and providing a reassuring environment for the Dormouse.
Not only are these interesting to observe, but they are thought to protect the dormouse numbers by offering environments which may not be available due to farming etc. Large numbers of boxes can boost the local dormouse population.
- Purpose built for Dormice
- Rear entrance hole
- Solid Redwood construction
- Intended for mounting on trees
- Treated with a water based, animal friendly wood preserve suitable for all wildlife
Check the area you live in first to see if you have a chance of getting any dormice?
This nest box has been designed in a way to stop humans from getting into the box. Unlike bird nest boxes a dormouse hibernates in the box so tampering with it is not allowed, in fact it is illegal unless you are a licensed dormouse handler. Please dont have a quick peek, it is stressful for the dormouse
If you are a licensed handler we do make special dormouse boxes to make it easy to weigh them, just give us a ring to discuss as we tend to make the boxes to the handlers preference rather than just a handlers box
If you do have any concerns on the preservative we can either send you a COSHH sheet or supply the nest box untreated
