Basic Barn Owl Box, White w/pole mounting block
Whitewash Barn Owl Box
Due to increasing rodent populations and a desire to reduce chemical use in the field, the use of barn owls in agriculture is rapidly increasing. The barn owl is one of the most efficient hunters on wings. A single adult barn owl can consume up to 1,000 pocket gophers in a year, and a family of owls can consume up to 3,000 rodents per year.
You can increase the likelihood of barn owl occupancy on your property by providing a safe, well positioned nesting home like the Barn Owl Nesting Box.
The common barn owl is one of the most widely distributed species of owl. It's an expert rodent hunter that nests in snug, dark cavities at well positioned sites. Owls feed on small ground mammals and breed anytime during the year depending on food supply, with an average brood of 3.5 chicks.
