Purple Martin Gourd Houses is an 8 Pack of houses. The Purple Martins gourd houses have Starling resistant doors to keep the gourd houses just for them. The gourds are made of 2 clam shell pieces for easy cleaning and inspection. The gourds mimic natural gourds that Native Americans once used but will last longer and have a moisture drip guard over the entrance hole. Some say that a gourd has become the Purple Martins preferred nesting place.
The gourds are made of durable plastic and are a neutral almond color to reduce heat build up. The bottom has drainage holes to allow moisture to escape if rain should come in. The 2 clam shell halves snap together and are secured by a single screw in the back. Place many gourds together in an open area for a group of Martins to setup a colony and keep your mosquito and insect population down. 8 gourds come in this pack.
