This survey will help us determine the appropriate nesting box or nesting box plans for you. We encourage the use of nesting boxes as a cost effective, safe and natural means of pest and rodent control. A Barn Owl family can consume up to 3,000 rodents in a four month breeding cycle. Nesting boxes are a win-win scenario for property owners and owls alike!

Rodent Poisons
- They are unnecessary , counter-productive and dangerous .
- Baits include ingredients that attract rodents to a location.
- Poisoned rodents die a slow death, and can also die within the walls of your home.
- Slow moving poisoned rodents are very easy prey for owls and other predators, including house cats.
Thank you!
