Abstract

Although this has been hashed and rehashed throughout the USA and beyond, I submit that, when it comes to owls and rodent control on farms, these questions need to be answered:
1. Is there any evidence (any studies) that demonstrate that there are more rodents in fields without owls than in fields with owls?
2. Is there any evidence (any studies) that demonstrate that there is more rodent damage in fields without owls than in fields with owls?
3. Is there any evidence (any studies) that demonstrate that there is more harvestable crop in fields with owls than in fields without owls?
