Description

Barn Owl (Tyto alba)

Due to rapid habitat loss and poisonings, owls are especially vulnerable in urban areas.
It is challenging to ‘attract’ owls to your garden. You can, however, provide an owl-friendly environment that might increase the likelihood of wild owls choosing to live nearby.
Food and nesting availability determines whether an owl will remain in an area.
What can you do to help protect Owls?
1. Don’t use chemical rat poisons that kill down the food chain. If you must use poison, products such as Racumen, which do not cause subsequent animal deaths, are the only ones you should use.
2. Get an Owl Box and put it up in your garden.
The ideal location of a Nesting Box:
• 4 – 6 m above the ground; avoid direct sun.
• Install the box out of any prevailing wind.
• Have a clear flight path to the box.
• Be in a quiet area.
• Do not attempt to lure owls to the box with food; this will only encourage other animals and deter the owl.
Nothing rusts on this box, as rust causes wood to rot.
The wood has been sealed with the best marine-grade wood preserve available.

GardenStuff also stocks Nesting Boxes for the common Spotted Eagle Owl.
