It covers the costs of our vehicles use, fuel, loading and unloading equipment, use of tools, insurance, personal protection gear, administrative costs and so on.

Barn Owl Box with Mounting Pole    $400

  Our cutting edge boxes are ethically designed and inspired for the needs of the barn owls that will occupy these boxes.  Everything from the color, size, and shape of this unique box was expertly designed specifically for the wellbeing and comfort of the owls. Regarding the craftsmanship of these boxes, we use only high quality materials and each box is built with integrity and future longevity in mind. We use marine grade plywood, stainless steel hardware, all the edges are screwed and glued together. We apply 2 coats of exterior paint, paying special attention to the finished project’s aesthetic qualities. We expect these boxes to last at least 15 to 20 years as long as they are properly maintained. This is an excellent investment towards your all natural rodent control needs.

 

We strongly recommend you place your new box on one of our galvanized steel, 11 gauge, 2 7/8th  inch diameter, 12 foot tall poles. The sturdiness of the poles attached to the bottom center of the box, prevents  high winds from rocking the box back and forth, thus sparing the life through wear and tear. It  comes with a 4 inch square steel plate welded to the top, ready to be attached to your new box. This also includes the 4 inch square, plywood reinforcement that attaches to the floor of your box. The bottom of the pole has a 4 inch steel kickstand to prevent the pole from turning or rising from the ground over time. Of course, all  hardwood is included. The slickness of the pole also prevents predators like raccoons climbing up into the nest box to predate on the owlets, as wood poles would allow predation by predators.
