Wood Duck boxes and Guards!
The Prairie Pothole Chapter has worked with Chappell Central for the past several years to build and distribute high quality wood duck box predator guards. Immensely popular, the Chapter has been shipping them throughout the United States. Typically though, once a guard order is placed the question of where to purchase quality cedar wood duck nest boxes is asked. Responding to this interest the Prairie Pothole Chapter ordered extra cedar wood duck nesting boxes for the Habitat Day and we now have them available for purchase with the predator guards. Each cedar nesting box comes as a complete kit with hardware and instruction. Once assembled it is ready to be mounted on a pole protected by a predator guard.
The MWI guard has four tabs cut in the center. As you wrap the cone guard around the post each tab is folded and screwed into the 4X4 or 3X5 timber. On landscape timbers with round edges use a hammer to conform the tabs to the timber. This style of cone guard can also be used on a metal U shaped pole but requires a set of metal brackets which can be ordered separately.
