Heath Aluminum 6-Room Deluxe Martin HouseEncourage purple martins to establish a new colony near you with this Heath Aluminum 6-Room Deluxe Martin House. This quality, single level shelter is made from lightweight aluminum, and its white sides keep nestlings cool through the warm summer months. A green roof covers the home, and the 6, trapezoid-shaped compartments offer plenty of room for a martin family. Each measures 9" wide at the front, 3" wide at the back, 6" deep, and 6" tall, and the offset design of the porches prevents territory disputes. Holes on the porches ensure drainage and support the plastic rails, while a 2.25" diameter entry leads into each nesting site. A significant, green roof sports a generous overhang, protecting the apartments from rain, and ensuring the home remains ventilated throughout the warm summer months. A green cupola tops the domicile, and its white, plastic finial adds both height and an elegant hint to the shelter.
The meticulous design makes this unit simple to clean and maintain, as well as close for the season. The lid lifts upward easily for nest checks, and the unit is designed for a 1.25" outer diameter pole (not included) to go through it. A center stabilizer and set screw keep the house in place on your existing pole, and the included, plastic door stops assist in closing the item at the end of the season, preventing other birds from overtaking the compartments. Crafted from aluminum, this home remains durable and classic for many seasons of service, and the 6 convenient compartments are a perfect way to begin a martin colony, or encourage growth of an existing one. Provide thoughtful nesting sites to purple martins with this Aluminum 6-Room Deluxe Martin House. Assembly required. Made in the USA.
