After you have installed this inflatable great horned owl scarecrow, birds and rodents will think twice about creeping around where you don’t want them. Standing at two feet tall, this owl will deter pests when placed on decks, window ledges, barns, boathouses, docks, and in gardens. It can be mounted upright on posts or poles with a tie, or hung from string under its ears. For best results, place the owl in a highly visible location before feeding habits develop, keep properly inflated, and change the placement of the owl every few days. After the growing season is over, just deflate the owl and store it indoors for next year.
