Why Barn Owls Are Ideal for Effective, Natural Rodent Control
Now in use on farms and private properties throughout the United States, oil palm plantations in Malaysia, rice fields in S.E. Asia, and hay and vegetable farms in Israel, barn owls lend themselves to effective rodent control through a number of unique adaptations:
Barn owls are cavity nesters, so can easily be attracted to nest boxes.
Barn owls live comfortably around human activity such as busy farmyards and agricultural fields
Barn owls are not territorial, allowing farmers to establish dense colonies.
Barn owls raise large numbers of young for a raptor—up to 13 young have been recorded in one nest, although 4 to 7 is more common
Barn owls respond to higher rodent numbers by producing more young.
A single family of barn owls can consume over 1000 pocket gophers per year, or 3000 mice or voles.
Barn owls are extremely faithful to their nest sites, returning year after year.
Once established, barn owls need very little maintenance.
Utilizing barn owls for rodent control is very economical when compared to the costs of poisons and other methods.
Where to Install Barn Owl Boxes
Barn owls are open field hunters. Anywhere there are agricultural fields, vineyards, orchards, row crops, grasslands, pastures, scrub, hay, and meadows. The ideal install for the Barn Model is on a side of the barn facing an open area.
