Shaklee Basic H 2

Does anyone use this anymore ?
Is it safe for the birds ?
Does it help with the biting gnats or biting flies ?

Biting gnats or flies

I read a post back from 2015 about using Shaklee Basic 2 on exterior of houses and gourds as well as inside of nest. Does anyone still use this ? Terrible problem this year with these biting things. Lost a lot of babies. Have been a landlord 8 years, never had this problem. Always pre nest compartme...

Louise,
This may sound stupid, but can you use unscented liquid soap instead of the bar soap ?

I had her phone number, but it was saved in the private messages on the forum, and they have disabled that on the forum. Most of our communication was through PM on the forum. I replied when she posted about down si...

Ken, I have 4 excluder gourds underneath both of my houses. All with crescent entrances and my martins seem to like them fine. I did move the porches up on all of them because starlings can breech them if given enough time to try. I love the inside outside porches. The martins stay on the inside por...

The females look a lot like the sparrows except the have strips on their chest and are lighter in color. The males have...

Wasp. What to use on ceilings ?

I know this has been discussed before, but I can't find the thread. What do you use on ceilings of houses so the wasp can't attach to them ? And if the birds would happen to get this on their bodies or wings, could it harm them ? If I remember right, it was suggested to use cooking spray or somethin...

If this is an adult discussion, they why are you still carrying on about it ?
I think Louise clarified things for everyone.
Perhaps, you are the one who needs to relax a bit.

Mary, You are an active landlord. Just because they didn't return doesn't mean you are not active. You had a pair, they fledged young. Submit the report. Some people on this forum are way overboard. You are an active landlord. Wishing and praying that you have many more pairs this year. Have been wa...

Mike,
Go to www.erva.com. Look under purple martin houses, then look for parts for houses under MSS8.
I just ordered parts for the old MSS8 I recently got from a neighbor.
Or ask Matt F. He can tell you exactly what you need.

what happened to babies at Gazebo Phil ?

I have been watching gazebophil.com and noticed there are only 2 babies now. Does any one know what happened to the other 2.
When they pulled the gourds down to band them I think there were still 4 babies.
