46. The risk is slight, just don't mount on a tree or against the house. Use a pole mount in the open.

.


Tree mount allows squirrels and rats/mice to attract them, as well as tree-born pests.


Guano is guano, after all, and you don't want that dropping by the side of the house.


I sunk 2 posts into the ground with long schedule 40 PVC 4-inch pipe in between. One bolt acts as a pivot rod, another acts as a removable linchpin so when it's time to clean it, I pull the pin out and lower the pole down gradually.
