House Martin Nest No. 9A

Droppings Board for No. 9A

It is increasingly difficult for Swallows and House Martins to find

suitable nest-building material in our modern world. The mud they

do find, if any, is often poor quality. In addition, the walls of buildings

are nowadays often very smooth. As a result, nests tend to fall down,

sometimes with the nestlings inside. In many places, the vibration

caused by heavy vehicles shakes the nests loose. Our SCHWEGLER

Nests, made of wood-concrete with a 75 % wood content, are far

superior to natural nests and are a direct way to help Barn Swallows

and House Martins. A variety of models is available for different

locations and species. In many regions the entire Swallow population

depends on artificial nesting aids. Swallows are popular Birds and are

regarded as the bringers of good luck. They feed on flying Insects such

as swarms of Greenfly, Crane Flies, Mosquitoes and Houseflies. They

prefer to hunt in the immediate vincinity of their nesting sites.

Advantages of SCHWEGLER Nests:

» unlimited life

» breathable material ensures a balanced temperature

» easy to clean and inspect

» vibration does not dislodge them

» swallows can occupy the nests as soon as they return from their

winter quarters in Africa

Installation details are included with each nest.

Material: Bowl-shaped nest made of air-permeable wood-concrete and

a backing board made of exterior grade, formaldehyde-free chipboard to

prevent warping.

Double nest: House Martins are very sociable and will more readily use

nests that are arranged in pairs. Can be installed in groups to form large

colonies.

never nest inside buildings. Install on the sheltered side of the building.

of September.

Breeding period: Eggs are laid from early / middle May until August. The

Birds raise one or two broods each year.

breed at altitudes up to 2,000 m above sea level.

Cleaning: Can be used for years without cleaning. However, if possible it

is advisable to inspect the nests frequently and to clean them if necessary.

Popular sites: Against a light background or wooden boards.

Swallows and Martins tend to return to the same nesting site year after

year. Consequently it may take some time before they colonize new areas.

Once they have chosen a nesting site there are virtually no limits to the size

of a colony of House Martin Nests.
