Barn Owls Used as Rodent Control

What many people don’t know is that a barn owl is considered as a highly efficient predator capable of hunting and consuming at least 12 rodents in one night. According to Duane Titus of Humane Wildlife Control, barn owls can in fact eat anywhere between 36 to 70 rodents every evening. Using wildlife to control rodent population is ideal because no toxins are placed in the environment.

If you are thinking of using barn owls to help control rodent population in your area, you can put up owl boxes in your property. They are cheap and easy to install and must be put up in the direction away from the wind.
