Extend the Life of your gourd birdhouse with these easy steps:
-Re-coat with polyurethane each year, this will help extend the finish.
-If possible, avoid hanging in direct sunlight, this will help with overheating and color fade.
-Minimize exposure to rain and snow, freezing and thawing can deteriorate the finish
-If the colors fade or the birdhouse peels, the birds won't mind! They like them this way too!
Perch of not to perch:
-Perches may look cute, but they simply give predators something to hold onto when approaching the entrance hole. Birds do not need a perch to enter the nest, they have such precise flying skills that they can land on the edge of the entrance opening.
-Why are there holes in the bottom of my gourd birdhouse?
-Holes are drilled in the bottom for drainage and for ventilation.
