This Orkney Squirrel House is the perfect way for young squirrel families to take shelter from predators and the elements. Crafted in sustainably-sourced pine with a handsome stain in our soft charcoal shade, this hardy animal house has been treated to ensure it lasts well outside. The ladder feature is more than just a charming decoration; the squirrels will appreciate the helping hand when emerging out of the hole.
Poke a stick through the hole, then open the hinged lid to fill this box halfway up with straw around the stick. This will provide a simple ladder for the babies to reach the hole should the straw get packed down too low and they can't reach.
We recommend mounting this house among a group of trees rather than on one tree by itself, and placing it 10-12 feet above the ground.
