Location of your Purple Martin House

Incorrect 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.
