Martin Colony History: Newbie in 2020: 2 pair of SY with 4 eggs each in Troyer Horizontals
fledged a total of 7 Martins

I have had 2 SY couples successfully raise families to fledge my first year 2020.
Currently I have what seems to be the start of black mold on the bottom floor
in 2 cavities of my Martin house. Does anyone know of a remedy that is safe
for Martins who visit the rest of this season? I thought maybe Boraxo or
baking soda? The bottom floor is made of exterior plywood. Would appreciate
any ideas. They say scrubbing with water and bleach. I guess I may have to take
the house down soon to remedy before it gets any worse. The wood is bare, untreated.
