The most serious threat to our native red squirrels is the interaction with the invasive, non-native grey squirrel. Grey squirrels compete for food and habitat with red squirrels, eventually displacing them. They also carry disease in the form of squirrel pox (SQPV), which is always fatal when passed to red squirrels. These specially designed nest boxes have been produced in the UK to provide a safe haven for our red squirrels to nest. The entrance hole in the box is too small for adult grey squirrels to enter.
The box is:
made from long lasting, lightweight Polypropylene
simple to put up, supplied with strap and full instructions
available to purchase at £45 each (P&P on request).
