Wren House Care
To clean your wren house, open the side panel and remove grass, twigs, and other nesting debris. Clean thoroughly with a nontoxic soap and water mix. Use a scrub brush to loosen dried droppings, food, or other messes. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
How do you monitor the wren house?
There are many ways to monitor bird houses. Many of the newer houses include a side panel that swings open for checking on the inhabitants. Some people use a telescoping mirror to look into nests without disturbing them. Others install a camera near the box before nesting season, or install one close to the entrance hole, to get real images of nest activities. These cameras are a great way to view all of the early social and feeding behaviors, too. You will learn amazing things about wild birds, without being the least bit invasive. We really recommend this approach.
Why should you monitor bird houses?
There are several reasons why you should monitor your bird houses during the nesting season. Chewed entrance holes increase the likelihood that larger species like starlings, house sparrows or other predators could access the nest and attack and destroy eggs or nestlings. Many other creatures can invade or inhabit the nest, including wasps, fire ants, snakes, raccoons, and mice. Each of the above circumstances minimizes the likelihood of successful nesting in your houses, and sometimes in your entire yard.
