Re: Gourds vs House

My martins have always used my T14 and gourds equally. Guess it just depends on the birds.

Lol, you want somebody to reduce their colony growing too start yours? If you have a good setup, their growing colony will help get yours started.

It’ll leave my house for neighborhood cat!!!

I’m gonna give them a try. I have my clingers if I have issues. I don’t have any tunnels. The Conley plates sure do give the doors a clean look. I also have eight gourds going on the house.

Re: Conley II Entrances

Thanks Dave. I just bought a Troyer T14, to replace the pine one I made ten years ago. They only offered the Conley II or round holes, not sure why anybody would offer round holes these days.

Re: Snake Guard

Generally 4ft. off the ground, the top needs sealed also. I had a rat climb my cable year before last. A cat or other predators will jump on top of your guard that low.
