If you like birds, but hate mosquitoes, install a swift nest box in your garden. This small bird is a true hunting champion when it comes to these blood-sucking creatures. Swift nest boxes become a common sight in cities that have to fight mosquito swarms. Thanks to the purchase of the birdhouse offered here you will be able to defend yourself against the nagging insects. Our product offers an eco-friendly way to get rid of the insects and the presentation of the acrobatic abilities of the birds will be an enjoyable show.
Our swift nest box is a cuboid that has a hole, with a size fitting the birds, in the front pane. This box has been manufactured of solid, impregnated, brown-painted planks. It has two metal latches. It is easy and quick to install and the box will hang stably. One of the panes can be removed and allows to clean the interior of the box conveniently. A birdhouse offered here has been carefully, solidly built and ensures that it will serve the birds for a long time. Our box can be mounted on a tree, wall, under the roof or even on a balcony railing.
In order to convince the swifts to stay in your garden, you should fulfil some conditions. The box needs to be mounted before the birds come back from wintering, end of April / beginning of May, at the minimum height of 5 metres. A quiet spot sheltered from winds and rain, as well as not directly exposed to sunlight, suit swifts best. North and east facing places are recommended.
Swifts live in colonies, hence we recommend to mount several boxes close to each other.
