Hi there,

We have two poles with gourds.Have had Martins in both for the last 15 yrs or so. Last yr a snake got past predator guard and netting and got in one of the colonies.We probably had about 20 martins in that colony and they all left.I moved that pole to a new spot as my impression was those martins would not return to that colony.
We just had some martins return last week and they went to the gourds that had the snake last yr.One stayed but 3 left and haven't returned.
My Question is could they detect that a snake had been in the gourds a yr ago.I changed all the pine straw in the gourds that had been used by martins last yr but didn't in the gourds that hadn't been used





I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
