Ed, are you right on McGinnis Lake? I have a sister who lives up at Dellwood - how far away from there are you?

I agree - hopefully this is the year all of us "Wannabe's" will become landlords.

Re: How are the numbers with other WI landlords?

In looking back I see where our purple martins returned on April 12th in 2012 and on April 26th in 2011. I'm watching but seeing nothing yet. It's rainy and about 70 here today. It's supposed to get cooler but be rainy and windy the rest of the week thru the weekend here, in south central Wisconsin.

Re: 2017 Wannabe report

I'm new here and definitely a wannabe. I'm located in the country on 2+ acres near Monroe, WI. We are about 10 miles north of the Illinois border and about 40 miles east of the Iowa border. I have had purple martins off and on for the past 32 years. Our neighbor across the road had them when we move...

Re: Insecticides for mites

I have never changed a nest in the middle of the program, so to speak. Can you please educate me on how this all works? I am curious as to how you do it because it will be totally different than what the PMs have made and I'm happy that they accept it but do you do anything special so they do accept...

Need advice on hanging Troyer horizontals

We've never had these before but I thought I would try them - only have 4 to start with to see how I like them - but I'm not sure how to hang them (with wire) so they hang straight and don't lean downward. Thank you for your help.
