Re: Liquid or Powered 7 Dust?

I treat with both. Liquid outside and dust inside. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to have 3 or 400 cavities to keep an eye on. Seems like I remember somebody having around 2000 I remember seeing a video. I wonder if they do nest checks. Lol I I've been fighting with mites a lot this year.

Re: s&k multi gourd rack 12?

I like mine. Hard to beat for the price, I don't have any bracing and seems to be fine [3rd year] it's a little hard to see in some gourds especially the big bo's with the inspection hole in the back. They where out of stock for over a year so I bought a Gemini for my second rack and it's really nic...

Re: Help with implementing use of gourd insert trap

I don't think chasing the hs away will work. I've not seen the trap your talking about but I would get them as soon as possible. I usually shoot the hs at my place and my gourds have a trap that is very easy to set on any gourd I choose [toyer gourds]. I haven't used the trap yet so don't really kno...

Re: 18 or 24 Unit Deluxe Gourd Racks

It takes a little bit to put it together but it's well worth it and you don't have to fill it with gourds right away. Even with 24 gourds there a lot less cavity domination or the gourds are further apart And 12 feet should be fine especially if there is a house on the other pole. It's very easy to ...

Re: Dispatching European Sparrows

I've got another one. Good lord. Martins are building nests. I'm off the next 3 days so I hope I can get rid of them. My dad has about 20-25 pairs of Martins. He has Sparrows nest every year with the Martins. Tries to get rid of as many as he can but he always has a few Sparrow nests. They never bo...

Re: Verticle gourds

Hi Ray, Yes I have had the same thing happen to me with some of the Troyer Gourds not just the verticals but also the horizontals. I don't think they are suppose to be that way and that it is just a bad batch that came out of the factory. I have since gotten more and they were okay. What I did with...
