Slide-Out House Martin Nest Single
This artificial nest is suitable for the House Martin. Each of the nest sections slide out of the plywood mounting board to allow for easy cleaning, or inspection of the nest contents by licensed surveyors. When in situ the nests are held securely in position with metal hooks.
Hang the artificial nests for the house martin on the façade of the house or barn, directly under the roof gutter or the overhang. Preferably on the east or northeast side, preferably with several nests together as House Martins are colonial nesters. No nesting material needs to be added. The artificial nests are supplied with mounting material, two plugs and screws.
Tip: provide a mud pool within a radius of 200 meters from the nesting place, so the house martins can build additional nests themselves.
The house martin nests will need to be cleaned and inspected once a year from October. For cleaning, you can turn the hook on the front of the nest bowl one turn and slide the nest out of the drawer. The suspension will need to be checked, as well as the condition of the entire artificial nest.
