Autumn-cleaning in the nest box:

When the brood has left home

When the last birds have left their nest boxes it is time for autumn cleaning. Cleaning is important because often mites, ticks and fleas have settled down in the nests. Therefore it is absolutely necessary to wear gloves and dirt-repellent clothing. A painting overall might be perfect for example. The next box can be rinsed out with hot water or a saline solution. In spring the birds’ parents may then move into a clean home.
