Barn Swallow Nesting in CupsLike hummingbirds, barn swallows will soon be returning to previous nesting areas (and new ones too). The behavior is akin to a faithfulness or loyalty to favorable locations from previous seasons.

Since the birds are extremely beneficial to have around the yard, gardens and barns for natural pest control, you can easily entice them with our barn swallow nest cups.

Handmade set of wooden nesting cups closely resemble a barn swallows’ own digs! Simple to hang, they’re best placed up high near roof lines or eaves and most definitely sheltered from the elements.

Do they really work? You bet! Just check out some of the on-page reviews  over the years. And especially Leda’s testimonial with pictures for living proof!

Swallows adore the sturdy artificial home and folks are thrilled as the nest cups allow the birds to be coaxed from inconvenient nest spots- a common occurrence around stables or barns. Nine times out of ten, the birds will use the cups for their second brood… and return next year to use them again.

Don’t be too surprised if an Eastern phoebe takes up residence either… they like the nest cups too!
