What’s an Owl Box? It’s Air Superiority’s answer to all your rat, mice and gopher problems. If you’ve seen Caddy Shack, then you know what lengths people will go to in order to rid themselves of a pesky gopher. We all have some horrifying stories of how uncle Jim or aunt Edna massacred a whole family of gophers using dynamite, a pick-axe and a water cannon. Luckily for all the family members, now there is a better way. It turns out that a pair of nesting owls eat up to 2000 rodents a year. That’s a lot of savings in bad gopher killing stories, and no family members will actually have blood on their hands. Air Superiority serves the western states, mainly California and Arizona. They provide and install owl boxes designed to entice owls to make your home or farm their staging area for rodent hunting. Tom Stephan runs Air Superiority and has practiced falconry since 1967. Tom knows birds. This is green pest control at its finest; no poisons, no scary gopher horror stories, although I’m sure the gophers find the owls pretty horrific. Air Superiority Owl Boxes range from about $350 to over $1000 installed, depending on model and options (which include fun options like video and motion detection).
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
