BARN OWL BOX
BARN OWL BOX Contructed of both plywood and cedar, these are houses which mount on trees or buildings and are designed to house barn owls. Both designs have several features which are important if you want an environment which barn owls like and will readily take advantage of when offered. Both have the same dimensions. Each stands 18" tall and is 18" deep. They are 11" wide and have a roof which overhangs the house by about an inch on each side so it will provide shelter from rain and snow. Both homes feature Plywood roof tops since the Plywood will wear much better in the rain once sealed and painted. The Cedar tends to crack and allow water to enter - something that will make any owl leave in a hurry. For this reason alone Plywood is used for the top and the bottom of both homes and will last a lot longer. Some more features include: 1) Vented ceiling which allows hot air to escape. The vents are located just below the roof and are subtle but effective. 2) Side mounts which owls seem to prefer over standard or traditional mounts for bird houses. The side mount gives the impression the house is more likely a part of the tree or structure on which it is mounted so owls are more willing to move in. The house is connected to the mount from the side as well as the bottom by a support which forms an "L" around the house. This extra mounting effort insures the house will stay affixed to where you want it to hang. 3) The front of the house has a wooden dowel hinge on top which enables access to clean the house annually. Two hanger bolts keep the front secure and sealed and the special hanger bolt wrench is included so you can unscrew them once a year for cleaning the interior of the home. 4) Cedar shavings are included for the bottom of the home. WHERE TO USE IT: Though generally on a tree about 10 feet up, Barn Owl Boxes have been known to attract occupants when mounted on houses and other buildings. They can also be mounted on telephone poles, bird feeding stations, etc. PACKAGING AND COST: There are two styles shown in the above picture. The one on the left is the Plywood house and comprised completely of plywood. This structure will prove to last about the same as the Cedar home but cost is less due to the less expensive wood needed for construction. Plywood homes can be painted any color and should be sealed on the outside only to protect them from water.

However, it uses all cedar except the roof and bottom. These parts are made of plywood since the plywood lasts so much longer than cedar. However, the rest of the home uses cedar which is stained a dark brown as shown.

We were recently interviewed for a segment FOX 5 NEWS ran during their evening news program. The segment talked about bats, why they are good to have around the house and features owner Jonathan Schaefer along with some of the Bat Houses we have been selling. The segment is about 4 minutes long so we posted it as two files, each about 2 minutes long and about 5 Megs in size. If you have a high speed internet connection, you will be able to stream these files playing them as they download. However, if you are using a dial up connection, you will be better off downloading them first and then playing them in their entirety. Click on the link below to go to our Video Page where you will find these files or look below this link for the other pages of our on line catalog. The story was very positive for Bats and may just be showing a changing feeling amongst the general population when it comes to this misunderstood creature.
