Housing for fine feathered friends: 12-room American Barn Purple Martin House. SAVE BIG!

Neighborly purple martins! Acrobatic birds whose menu happens to be mosquitoes and other annoying insects. Truly nature's winged pest-control specialists, they consume many mosquitoes each day! Martins are also the only North American birds that rely entirely on man-made structures for communal nesting.

Setting up your own Martin House lets you bond with the same martin couples returning year after year to hatch a new feathered family of little skeeter-eaters!

Details:

  • Maintenance-free, UV-protected polypropylene copolymer plastic
  • Fully ventilated
  • Drainage for dry nests
  • 12 compartments, each 6 x 9"
  • Starling-resistant doors rotate up for inspection
  • Traction floor with built-in nest bowls.
  • Simple snap-together assembly, no tools required. Measures 20 x 21 x 21"h. Has central opening for adjusting pole (sold separately under SKU# 176711). Weighs 10 lbs., 9 ozs.

Attract your own martin community with one of these well-crafted Houses.

Reviews
12-room American Barn Purple Martin House is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok Description does tell your everything you need to use the pole they suggest. The pole they recommend is a good pole, but you need a adapter bracket to mount to the bottom of the bird house for the pole to fit into. Also, using this pole you do not get the top cover of the bird house. The top cover of the bird house comes with a cheaper (less quality) pole. Bird house seems cheap and flimsy, but when you put it together it actually is pretty sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do not get this with the steel telescoping pole I ordered this purple martin barn with the pole suggested. It does not fit the pole. I called the manufacturer and they told me the pole to order. Customer service at Sportsman's Guide said the correct pole is no longer carried by them. They offered to send me a return voucher. I did call the S-K mfg and they are sending me an adapter kit for $16 to make the house usable with the incorrect pole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small...entry doors too small. Resident birds rejected it. A very poor buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is not a bad Martin house, but the instructions on how to assemble the house are terrible. I was also disappointed to find there's a big hole in the top of the house that's for use if you buy the additional pole that's offered. There's no easy way to mount the house to a pole that doesn't use a rope lift assembly, which I guess also has to be purchased. I will find a way to rig a cover over the hole, and someway to attach a pole I already have. The details on the website are misleading.
