|Advantages of Schwegler Nest Boxes|
1) They are simple to install, inspect and clean. 2) The patented method of installation on trees prevents the tree trunk growing over the hanger from which the box is suspended. Schwegler also provide aluminium nails for fixing the nest box these are more tree friendly than normal iron/steel nails.3) Schwegler nest box designs mirror natural holes formed by tree decay or by woodpeckers.4) Schwegler nest boxes are famous for their durability and will last at least 20-25 years.5) Schwegler nest boxes are readilly adopted by birds and will be used season after season by the same breeding pair if the box location is right.6) Schwegler nest boxes have been developed in close colaboration with leading ornithologists, nature conservation organisations, forestry experts and government conservation agencies across europe.7) Schwegler nest boxes are made with a unique wood-concrete material (75% wood) and various additives to compensate for climate changes providing insulation from fluctuating temperatures, allows air to pass through the walls and prevents condensation.8) Schwegler nest boxes are more weather resistant and longer lasting than wooden counterparts and strong enough to withstand the attention of woodpeckers (who will widen holes of wooden nest boxes too gain access to newborn chicks).9) Schwegler nest boxes are constructed using the right diameters and measurements for the brooding chamber and entrance hole per need of the birds, insects and mammals they are designed for. This has been achieved through experiments by bird protection agencies who have found that the highest breeding populations per hectare use Schwegler nest boxes. 10) The agencies below have officially recognised and approved Schwegler Nest boxes.
