Tyto Pest Control takes our name from Tyto alba or the barn owl. With their ghostly white faces and eerie cries, the barn owl is one of the world’s most recognizable owls. Like our pest control services, the barn owl is a powerful force against rodents and pests in the Northern Utah area from Logan all the way to Provo. Barn owls are often welcomed by farmers and homeowners alike. A single family of barn owls may consume over 1000 rodents a year, consuming more rodents than any other creature.
Like most owls, the Tyto Alba is nocturnal. They spend their days nested in cavities such as hollow trees, caves or attics. They emerge just before dusk and use their excellent vision and hearing to hunt for small rodents and other prey. They are a medium sized owl, about 10-20 inches in length with a wingspan that can stretch over three feet. Subspecies can vary in weight (between 0.4 – 1.75 lbs) with females averaging about 10% heavier. In the wild, individuals live only about four years on average due to predation and accidents. In captivity, they can live to be twenty years old or even more.
