Has anyone got advice for me re slugs repeatedly getting intro our bird box? We had the beginnings of a nest and then all activity ceased. We didn’t want to disturb the box in case there were late nesters needing it but when I came to clear it out it was full of slugs. This is the 2nd time this has happened. Any advice? I have now put the metal bands I use on my plant pots around some of the rim but am not sure if this is going to work….
In reply to Robbo:
Apologies for the delay in replying. No idea why the photos have come in sideways! The box is north facing.

The birds investigated the box and lined OT for nesting about Feb/March, we think. It also attracted some Tree bees in the summer (about July) but they didnt stay.
