The nesting boxes chosen for this project are being purchased ready made from Hollow Log Homes.
Their quality was highly recommended both for design and for the longevity of the materials. It was felt that there was no point trying to save money and finding that the boxes were rotting after a few years. It can take 2 -3 years for the target species to move in and start using boxes if they were not highly active in the location. So the boxes needed to be high quality so that they would serve the animals for several generations. The chosen boxes have a lifespan of 10-15 years.
