Starlings are often seen as a problem at certain times of the year and in particular regions. They are highly adaptable, feed in flocks and can soon use up readily available sources of food However, we should not forget the ecological benefits that they provide as an important form of pest control. For example, they limit the numbers of crane flies, green oak leaf rollers and gypsy moths.
Ornithologists advise that a perch below the entrance hole is unnecessary because the birds will happily use the roof of the box.
