Porches can assist martins in entering starling-resistant entrance holes, as well as offer a convenient perch.
Constructed of textured aluminum with rolled safety edge, these porches measure 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and can be mounted inside or outside on most plastic or natural gourds. Porches can also be mounted on wooden or metal houses. They attach securely with screws (not provided); due to the curvature of individual gourds, a bead of white silicone caulking is recommended to seal any gaps between porch flange and gourd. Sold singly.
