Dormouse Nest Tubes New in Stock at NHBS

Dormouse Nest Tubes are now available from NHBS. These nest tubes provide a cheap and easy method of determining the presence of dormice within a habitat, and provide an effective alternative to using a large number of more expensive wooden nest boxes.

The dormouse nest tube consists of two parts – the wooden ‘tray’ and the ‘nesting tube’. The tray, made from 3-ply, fits securely inside the nesting tube (made from plastic tree guard material), with a wooden block sealing the tube at one end. Dormice make nests in these tubes, and it is these nests that are used as indicators of their presence in the habitat.

We supply the nest tubes as singles, and at discounted prices for 10’s and 100’s.

Find out more about dormice in Natural England’s Dormouse Conservation Handbook and the Mammal Society’s The Dormouse.

Also check out our sturdy wooden Dormouse Nest Box – ideal for long-term dormouse accomodation.
