Crescent-holed SuperGourds with Porches(1-3/16" Starling-resistant crescent-shaped entrance hole) for Purple Martins (#SGCP):  

This, the “Crescent” SuperGourd, it is identical to the other two SuperGourd models but has a 1-3/16” high, crescent-shaped SREH (starling-resistant entrance hole) designed to prevent cavity entry by all but the smallest of cavity-stealing European Starlings.   Includes both the inner and outer porch for each gourd.

Overall Dimensions: SuperGourd: 10" L x 12" W x 12" H

Durable: SuperGourds are blow-molded in white (sun-reflecting), opaque, high-density polyethylene plastic. They won't rot, peel, split, or crack out in the elements, and won't break if accidentally dropped like natural gourds can. Because they are molded with ultraviolet inhibitors added to the plastic, they have a long life expectancy with virtually no maintenance other than giving a quick scrub at the end of the season.

Easy to Hang: SuperGourds can easily be hung underneath an existing martin house, from a gourd rack, or strung on a line between two poles. One set of 1/4" hanging holes (side-to-side) are pre-drilled and will accept a hanging wire; a set of front-to-back holes can easily be drilled by the purchaser if so desired.  When hanging on any of the gourd racks we offer, the customer will need to enlarge the hanging-holes using a 13/32" drill bit.

Designed to Benefit Purple Martins: Landlords that use gourds know that they are highly attractive to martins (but are the least attractive of all martin housing to House Sparrows or starlings), reduce the risk of owl predation, have high occupancy rates, plus reduce the incidence of fallouts and premature fledging. Now, busy landlords can offer their martins all the advantages of properly-prepared gourds, without investing the time and effort required to grow natural gourds, then add access doors and canopies, or repaint them every year or so.

Landlord Friendly: A landlord only needs hanging wire if not using any of our gourd racks. SuperGourds are low-to-no maintenance martin housing; no sanding or painting, and nothing to add except stick-on numbers. Everything a person needs to be a better landlord is already there. Balance the cost of a SuperGourd against the years of low-maintenance use you'll get and the advantages for the martins. Then compare the occupancy rate and cost to other types of housing that have, at best, 50% occupancy, or that require annual repainting.

Assembly of Porches:  Landlords will need to attach the porches on to the SuperGourd.  Templates, hardware, as well as instructions on how to do this are included. 

Easy Parasite Control: Nest parasites can decrease nesting success in Purple Martins by 50%. In a SuperGourd, any parasite problem can be remedied simply and safely with a nest replacement. The access port and smooth interior make this easy. The access port also makes it easy to regularly add Diatomaceous Earth, further lowering parasite numbers. SuperGourds have no seams, joints, or crevices in which parasites can hide, breed, or overwinter. No other type of martin housing can claim this advantage.

Gourd Interiors: SuperGourds have plenty of room for three to six martin young to grow.  

Pine Needles: We recommend placing a few handfuls of pine needles in the gourds before the martins return.

Nest Changes: Easy to perform nest changes thanks in part to our heavy-duty, UV-protected screw-on cap. We recommend two nest changes when the young are between 5 to 10 days old and 15 to 20 days old.  . 

The Crescent-holed SuperGourd with porch is available in many price saving quantities.
