Question From: B. Dempsey-West - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: Any recommendations about where to place roost boxes? Should they face south to get the sun?
Face them away from prevailing winds. South is probably best. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
Q: How do I clean out a Gourd nest box once the birds have left? The opening is small?
My guess is you pick the material out of the entry hole, hose it out, use a long handled brush to scrub it out and then rise with a 10 percent bleach and water mix, rinse well and allow to dry. Labor intensive yes, but doable. I suggest you Google the question and I bet lots of folks who use these gourds have found easier ways to do it. Good Luck Nancy
