Re: Best season yet

This has been only our second year as active landlords, prior 25 years we were busy raising family and work. Just put up houses and cleaned after season. Last year we had 15 nests with 60 plus fledged, this year we had 32 nests with 118 fledged. Very happy with nest mite and sparrow control. Martins...

Re: Late brood

Les from Michigan, most of 2019 brood left already (about 105 ) with another 13 young still hanging around. This week should complete with 5 more to fledge. Really good year with 124 hatched and 118 fledged. The first group left within 1-2 days and the later 1 week so far. Fun, fun stuff.

Re: End of season report.

Just finished 2018 season. Have been inactive landlords for about 20 years, now active. 15 active nests, 66 live, 60 fledged.
Used Sevin first time for nest mites, worked well. All metal houses, 5x11 boxes, crescent openings, only 1 artificial gourd used.
Really enjoyed them this year.
