I haven't had too much trouble lately with hawks but in the spring I was thinking about putting up a Martin nesting box. I figure if anything they will be an advanced warning for hawks or other birds of prey.
I had to click on this thread to see if you were really trying to say "Martian Colony."
Ok let me read your post.......
I have swallows which also dive around and eat mosquitoes. Yes they are very vocal and keep lookout, but they are not always out of their nests paying attention. (Different bird, I know, but I wanted to weigh in anyhow, lol!)
Martins are really wonderful for bug control and you will be blessed by them, certainly, at any rate. Go for it!
