Swift boxes on communal buildings in Poland

Poland has lots of mosquitoes in summer, Poles don't like being bitten by mosquitoes, swifts eat mosquitoes.

Therefore: https://www.whitemad.pl/budki-dla-je...-wrog-komarow/

When renovating the communal blocks of flats in Warsaw, they placed a lot of swift boxes to draw the birds there, to eat the insects.
