Re: Visitors Question

In addition to the pine needles, get a little mud and put on your houses and or gourds to make it look like they have been used before. This is what i do when i put a new house up. Good lick and God bless you and your little purples.

Re: Starlings getting in crescent openings

Whether it is a a goard or t-14 and a sparrow or a starling gets in he cavity i wait till the culprit lays an egg then put in a trap. I then get one of the pair immediately.
