Finding the right paint for the job is critical when it comes to anything exposed to the elements.
Hand made nest boxes for squirrel gliders are definitely in that category. Boxes need to be weatherproof, within a certain colour range to avoid temperature extremes, and indentifable from the ground.
Wodonga Men’s Shed volunteers have persevered with several trials of exterior paint for boxes and stencils.
The boxes, destined for Nail Can Hill, are finally ready to go and looking pretty close to perfect with clear and legible identifying stencils.
Thanks Wodonga Men’s Shed for the thought and care put in to manufacture and finish these boxes. We look forward to seeing them in-situ!
