Easy to Hang: SuperGourds can easily be hung from a Shephard's hook or whatever you may have. One set of 1/4" hanging holes (side-to-side) are pre-drilled and will accept a hanging wire; or drill to accommodate your own pole.
Designed to Benefit Tree Swallows: Landlords that use gourds know that they are highly attractive to tree swallows, 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 tree swallows 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: SuperGourds are ready to hang right out of the box - there's no assembly required. A landlord only needs hanging wire. 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.
Gourd Interiors: SuperGourds have plenty of room for three to six 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.
Tree Swallows love to perch so adding the SuperGourd Porch will make the gourd even more attractive. Porches are sold separately.
Adding Porches to Round-holed SuperGourds DOES NOT make them crescent-holed.
The Round-holed SuperGourd is available in many price saving quantities
