your Purple Martin House
placement of martin housing is the main reason
people fail to attract them. Purple Martin's are
very picky with their aerial space requirements.
Your Purple Martin house should be placed in the
most open spot in your yard that's available and
about 30-100 feet from human housing. You should
have no trees that are taller than the martin
house within 40 feet. If at all possible the
farther from trees the better as this is where
the Purple Martin's enemies live.
Your Purple Martin house should be 10 to 20 feet
off the ground. Always keep shrubs, tall bushes
and vines away from the pole. No wires should be
attached to the house that lead to any trees,
buildings or the ground. If you have a very
wooded yard and these trees are too close to the
Martin house you can prune or possibly remove or
if the trees are not too tall you can erect the
Martin house higher than the trees. If you live
close to water a boat dock is an excellent
location for a Purple Martin house.
