Question doesn't like her nesting box???

Hey guys,
This must be my zillionth post about my snake and nesting boxes lol,
But I made up a nesting box and put moss inside... Anyways, my snake doesn't really seem to like it, he is constantly pushing the moss out and trying to dig through the corners of the box.
She just isn't comfortable and I can't find anything else that I could use as a nesting box, and if she's not getting comfy, she won't lay
What can I do?

Thanks a bunch,

Amie

what snake is it?
cant you just fill the viv/tub with nesting material and let her decide where she wants to lay?

it's a bull snake,
and not really, no, the pet shop near me sells the moss for quite a bit tbh, and the bull snake stays in a 3 foot viv right now "/

have a look on ebay, you should find dried moss really cheap on there.
Look in the garden section though rather than the rep section.

I buy mine from pets at home and don't find it all that expensive.

the guys in my pet shop might as well run about in black and white striped jumpers and a swag bag... ROBBERS!!

everything is over priced, and until i have a steady income into my bank account i can't use the internet to buy in bulk, so i have to use the pet shop

i can afford what i need for food and such, but it would take about 5/6 bags of moss to fill the bottom enough for laying and this would cost me about £20, might not sound like a lot, but, to me, it's a lot of money that could go to something else
