Sorry, this item is out of stock

Invite a martin colony to start in your backyard with the Nature House Mini-Castle Safety System with Pole. This durable, twelve compartment house is a smaller version of the Trio Purple Martin Castle and features a martin enticing, hexagonal shape. Martins seem to prefer apartments offset from each other, cleverly achieved with the hexagonal shape and wide porches of this home. Made of durable aluminum, the Mini-Castle's lasting construction helps dissipate any heat buildups in the compartments, maintaining a comfortable temperature for the nestlings. In addition, the lightweight house is simple to raise and lower on the included lanyard lock system. Simply ensure that the rope completely threads through the house and does not twist. Then, attach the rope to the included lock system, and loosen it when you need to check the house for nests and cleanouts. This system is safe for people of all ages interested in becoming or remaining a martin landlord. The entrance holes on the hexagonal dwelling are spaced approximately 8" apart to discourage male martin domination, and the 14" wide porches with guard rails create the offset housing compartments that martins tend to prefer. Each of the twelve compartments has individual, flip-up/snap-out doors for easy access, and Dri-nest subfloors keep nests 0.25" above the floor for additional drainage. This extra floor also allows you to easily treat parasites under the nests if necessary. A roof perch creates extra spots for your martins to perch and preen, and an included ground socket provides stability to the pole. Twelve door stops help you close the home for the winter. With its wealth of features and thoughtful design, this home is certainly one of the most complete and durable units on the market. Entice martins to nest in your yard by providing them a majestic home with the Mini-Castle Safety System with Pole. Assembly required.
