Steve - I would leave the nesting box in all the time rather than disturbing a female looking to nest when you suspect it.

What you could do if you don't want them digging in the dirt unless it looks like they want to nest without causing undo stress is to create a cover for the nest box (if your turtle table is wood just screw this down into the top) then remove it when you think its time. The only thing in the habitat that changes is the sudden appearance of the box and stress is reduced
