    Book details


A Purple Martin can eat 2,000 mosquitoes per day! This startling sentence serves as a fitting introduction to an equally startling story. It is the unique story of a small town, an insect-eating bird, and the rise of both to national prominence, underscored by one of the vital issues of our time- that of natural versus chemical pest control. It is a story which clearly illuminates the nation's growing concern for the safety of our environment.

Review Text

  • By B. D. Hamilton on May 9, 2012

    We purchased this book several years ago when we first put our Purple Martin house up. The information provided in this book has helped us to become good "landlords" for this very special bird. Actually, it would have been even better if we had read the book BEFORE we put our Martin house up, because we would have chosen a pole that would allow us to lower the house for maintenance. As it is, one of us must climb a tall ladder to remove sparrows' nests as they build to keep the rooms available for our martins when they return each year. We love to watch and listen to the martins, and apparently they enjoy doing the same when we are working in the yard. When we are outside they fly around and perch on our overhead wires to watch us!

    Evidence clearly shows that Purple Martins do not eat anywhere near 2000 mosquitoes a day. This book was published as an advertisement for Purple Martin houses.
