This mini mammal house is ideally used for dormice but can also offer a snug home for other small mammals.
The dormouse nesting box has been beautifully made into an attractive half round shape from solid timber, a recycled plastic inner skin and decorative wooden log outer provides great insulation and an apex roof offers a good shelter keeping the dormice cozy and dry.
The round entrance hole is positioned at the rear of the dormouse house and needs to be covered during inspection using the supplied recycled plastic blanking plate, this slides neatly between the two FSC wooden hangers and prevents the dormouse escaping when the hinged green inspection door is opened by removing the wingnut. In normal use the rear entrance hole should be left uncovered for dormice to enter between the tree and the box.
NOTE: Dormice are a protected species and inspection should only be carried out by a licensed handler if dormouse occupation is suspected.
