Bird and Bat Box Project

Kinsale Tidy Towns undertook bird and bat box projects with the help of Kinsale's Mens Shed. We have installed these in various locations around our town.

There are many benefits to bird boxes. Not only do they provide a safe place for birds to build their nests, protected from the elements and predators. They can help us in:

  • Controlling pests.  Since birds eat insects, they will help to eliminate unwanted pests in your yard and free you from needing to use otherwise harmful pesticides.
  • Weed control.  Birds love to eat weed seeds.  Gardeners do not like to weed. A Win win situation for all!
  • Flower pollination.  There are many birds who love to sip nectar from flowers and help to pollinate. With the bee population diminishing, attracting birds who do this is sure to benefit your garden.
  • Conservation. Birds love native plants.  If you grow these and then attract birds to your yard with bird friendly birdhouses, you will find that your gardening chores will diminish.
