Installing your nestbox
For secure and stable fixing, there are two hanging tabs attached to the back of the nestbox, one at the top and one at the bottom. These tabs make it quick and easy to securely fix it in place. Screws not supplied.
- Type of bird
RSPB nest boxes are made with thick FSC® certified timber and will survive for many years, even without the use of preservatives.
If you do want to protect your nestbox further, use a water-based preservative (preferably one that complies with standard EN71 part 3 as safe for children's toys). Such paint/preservative types are clearly marked on the container, and are available from DIY stores and hardware shops.
Preservatives should only be applied to the outside of the box. Apply in the winter, when there is a low likelihood of occupancy. This will allow time for any remaining volatile components to evaporate.
For more information about siting a nest box please see the Advice section of the main RSPB website.

Great product and delivery.
Ordered Monday morning and delivered very promptly on Wednesday morning. The nesting box looks great, very sturdy and great quality.
RSPB response: Thank you for your review. The diamond nest box is designed to be cleaned without being taken apart, as it has an open front. We recommend rinsing the inside of your nest box briefly using boiling water to kill any remaining parasites, and let the box dry out thoroughly. Please make sure you avoid melting any glue that may have been used in the nest box's construction, and do not use insecticides and flea powders.
