Swallows, martins and swifts are some of the most common bird species observed on and around horse properties. As predators, they are attracted by the large insect populations found wherever there is livestock. In fact, they provide an important means of pest control for horse owners since 2 pairs of swallows consume about 12,000 insects a day, making them more effective than mechanical means such as traps and electric bug zappers, and a “green” alternative to insecticides and other aggressive techniques. Plus, swallows are beautiful and fun to watch as they perform their aerial acrobatics. This Tip Sheet will show you how to provide habitat that will attract swallows to your property for help with insect control.
