Genesis Double Swift Box for external installation on a building provides two swift nesting sites.
Genesis swift nest boxes are widely used in Ireland, and are now available in the UK and the rest of Europe exclusively through Wildcare. They have been designed with input from experts at Swift Consevation Ireland and other conservation bodies.
Genesis Swift Boxes are made using high quality Magnesium Oxide (MgO) board, a product widely used in the building industry especially in Asia. MgO is an environmentally friendly, non-hazardous product that produces no fumes, is easy to work with and can be ground down and reused as plant fertiliser. It is waterproof, mould-and vermin-proof.
The Double Swift Box is designed to be mounted on an external wall and comes with stainless steel bolts and screws, and an aluminium mounting bracket.
It is painted on the outside with an undercoat of insulating paint to help reduce temperature fluctuations in the nest. This can be painted over with a water-based paint to match the wall colour.

Hole Dimensions: 6.5 x 2.5 cm
