Why Do I Want Screech Owls in my Yard?
Screech owls eat small rodents and backyard pests providing exceptional pest control and help to prevent damage to your lawn or garden. This means you can use less or even no harmful pesticides! Imagine a peaceful evening listening to the owls calling. And then all of a sudden you hear another. Perhaps it’s a potential mate. Or, maybe just a conversation with another owl. If you’re lucky, you may even get a mating pair to move in. Nothing beats looking up into your owl house and seeing a couple of baby owlets in the opening.
Are Screech Owls Fun?
Screech owls are especially social. Once established in your Lone Star Woodcraft Owl House, they will perch proudly in the opening which is designed so you get to see the WHOLE Owl. They like to take in the sun’s rays and also scout out the area for dinner. They aren’t typically scared off by children, pets, dogs, or mowers etc. and are too small to be a threat to your cats or small dogs. Screech Owls will help control the large insect (cockroaches, scorpions etc. ) and rodent such as mice that can do significant damage to your property. Also, having Screech Owls nearby speak to the natural balance of the ecosystem in your yard.
Does your Cedar Screech Owl House Really Work?
Take a look at our website and see the many pictures of our satisfied customer’s owl houses with owls living in them. This Cedar Screech Owl House require no maintenance and does not require cleaning each season. Just place a few handfuls of some dried crushed leaves from your yard in the bottom of the house (1-2″) before you mount it. Unlike other birds that require a fresh start every year, Screech Owls are “lazy” nest builders and prefer to reuse the same nest year after year and just add to it as needed. No need for gimmicky cleanout doors which weaken the structure and are prone to failure, potentially exposing the owls, their nest, eggs or owlets to predators.
