Artificial Barn Swallow Nest Cups

Individual nests may be used to coax a nest building pair to move to a more suitable location. Barn swallows frequently build nests over door frames and on top of porch lights. An artificial nest placed elsewhere on the porch when the swallow mud is removed will likely be readily accepted.

Multiple nests may be used to entice swallows to use your porch, shed, or other building for the first time. If barn swallows are observed in your yard, and, especially if they have ever shown interest in nesting there, offering several appropriately placed artificial nests will greatly improve your chances of attracting them.
