Siting & positioning:
These nesting aids are installed singly. Although Barn Swallows are sociable birds, the nests should not be placed directly adjacent to one another but at intervals of approximately 1 m.
Cleaning and inspection:
Can be used for years without cleaning. However, if possible it is advisable to inspect the nests frequently and to clean them if necessary.
