“Birdhouse Predator Guard – Essential for the Safety of Cavity Nesting Birds!”
Birdhouse Predator Guard’s for birdhouses vary in size and we make them from very dense pine (CO beetle-kill wood) in the following sizes: 1-1/4″, 1-3/8″, 1-1/2″ and 2-1/2″. For custom birdhouse predator guard sizes and materials (oak, Trex, cedar, …) Contact The Bird Man.
Every birdhouse should have a birdhouse predator guard over the entry hole to protect the baby birds and mom from predators such as squirrels, raccoons, and other species of birds.
The concept is with a double thickness of wood it is harder for another critter, like a squirrel or raccoon, to bend their elbow down to the babies and mom.
The birdhouse predator guard will also protect the birdhouse from getting damaged by woodpeckers when they work to make the hole bigger throughout the year. Each year you can replace just the predator guard instead of the entire birdhouse.
