Barn owls can be found around the world, and yet in several parts of the world the population of barn owls is in significant decline. Some areas have even listed the barn owl as threatened or as an endangered species. Habitat destruction and the use of pesticides and herbicides are the most common reasons why the barn owl population is at risk. One way to increase the barn owl population is to encourage them to settle on safe properties free of poisonous chemicals. Installing a barn owl house will help attract owls to your property.

Barn Owls are not the least bit interested in boxes but they’re very interested in holes. If you provide a box in a building make sure the hole is visible to the owl as it enters. If you are making a hole into a building, select the end of the building that’s most visible – the end that overlooks the most suitable open ground. For tree boxes you need a tree with an exposed trunk so that the hole into the box is visible to an owl that may be passing by chance.
