Our signature product, the patented Barn Owl Box, is now in use by thousands of orchards, vineyards, row crop farms, and private land owners. This innovative nest box is contributing to highly effective natural rodent control programs while reducing the use of pesticides and aiding in barn owl conservation in numerous states.

Barn owls, which can be established in dense colonies, eat high numbers of rodents, and remain faithful to their nest sites, have been shown to reduce rodent numbers at less cost than trapping or poisons. They exert a constant pressure on pest populations. A single family of barn owls will consume between 2,000 and 3,000 rodents annually. The large population of 18 breeding pairs on our study site in California consumed over 30,000 rodents in three years.

The Barn Owl Box Company participates in numerous research projects around the country. Please view the PBS segment on our cutting edge research on the sidebar link that highlights how we established a colony of over 100 barn owls on a single vineyard with significant reductions in rodent numbers.

“I bought ten Barn Owl Boxes last summer. By spring of this year I had barn owls everywhere. Every one of those boxes had baby barn owls in them”

Allen M. – Vineyard and orchard owner, Calusa, CA

“Got our barn owl box up on Feb 8th and three days ago noticed whitewash, blood smears on the entrance, pellets under the nearest tree branch and the clincher, a single barn owl feather. Staked it out in full camo last night and not one but two owls emerged right at dark. I have to say I am elated and amazed they found it this quickly. Feb 8th to March 18th….pretty good. My husband is shaking his head…he thought it was money wasted on a box that would never get used, but now he has to say those dreaded words…”Honey you were right!”

Wendy Tennyson – Bell Rive, Illinois

“I purchased four bluebird houses from you in early spring. After an easy setup on my property, I had renters within two weeks–three out of four nest boxes were occupied with bluebirds throughout the summer, producing multiple clutches. I highly recommend this bluebird house!”

Tom Sedenka – Lisbon, Iowa

“Received the wren house this past Friday and it is great. It is solid and well built. The house should outlast me. Thanks for a good product”

Mike Trentham – Clinton, Tennessee

“The Barn Model was easy to install in our metal barn, and within four weeks we had a pair of owls. Within the first day, there were two dead mice in the box as well! It’s been fun to check on it each day and watch the whole process. In fact, many of our family and friends are engaged with this endeavor, and ask for regular owl updates. We highly recommend this product!”

Debbie S. – Property owner, Manhattan, Kansas

“I wanted to let you know that we have had your barn owl box up for three months and now have two babies in it, they are doing fine and flying around at night eating with mom and making noises. We are enjoying them very much.”

Sandi R. – Horse breeder, Sacramento, California

“This mansion for my barnies is great. And you guys were so gracious to spend time on the phone with me when I bought it, and when I installed it. Thank you so much for putting service into customer service.”

Barbara Emson – Escondido, CA
