PostSubject: Trapping Year Round   Fri Feb 12, 2010 9:54 am

I received this question from our newest member on her introduction thread and thought it would be a good idea to give it it's own space.

Any help with traps or ideas will be most appreciated. I have heard lately that we should have been doing sparrow control all year long even though the martins are only here certain months. Do you agree with that?

The answer is yes, I certainly do agree with that. For me, anytime I can trap for sparrows I'm a happy camper but the fact is that sparrows remain in an area year-round. Naturally it is easier to maintain a low number of sparrows than it is to gain control in the beginning. Also, if you have a handle on things when the martins show up you will have more time to focus on them.

For me it did not work :Reason- juncos like the same millet seed that I use to lure sparrows, after having to go out and release about five juncos I put my trap away till spring.
