Recommendation For Where To Place Roost Boxes

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?

A: Face them away from prevailing winds. South is probably best. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy

Comment: How do I clean out a Gourd nest box once the birds have left? The opening is small?

Response: 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
