Yesterday collected freshly prepared cross woods for Masai BH.
The supplier agreed to cut the nesting planks into 3-4 feet long so that they can be easily fit my Camry car boot.
After collecting decided to clean the wood surfaces and apply SP pheromone liquid.
This applying of aroma before fixing is something which I think should be done in your BH.
The wood will be more attractive to those wild birds.
Once clean I applied a layer of the liquid and wrap them with plastic sheet.
In this way the wood surface will be free from any dirt or sweat during handling.
The prepared wood will be taken to Masai and installed as cross woods.
Beside the SP aroma I plan to apply blended raw nest mix with white duck eggs.
Will monitor the outcome and should it be well accepted the same procedure will be carried out in all future cross woods installation.
Do enjoy these pictures and clips taken.
