Installing Bird Netting:

Bird netting is a great way to prevent birds from entering your garden and protect your crops from being harmed. If you want to choose a bird netting, it's very important to know the right size of the. holes in the netting. The holes should be small enough to prevent birds from getting in while still providing sunlight and rain your plants need to grow. You need a material that is strong enough to handle outside conditions.

In order to install bird netting the right way, you have to drape the netting over the plants and be sure it's covering the entire area. Next, secure the edges of the netting to the ground using rocks or stakes to prevent birds from getting in.

After installing netting, it's important to check it regularly and where necessary, adjust the netting so there are no gaps or openings for birds to get through. Maintenance is critical to keep the netting in great shape and remain effective. When you inspect the netting, look for any tears or other damage and make repairs or replace it when needed. Remove all debris that might build up on the netting which will allow birds to perch and gain access to the garden.

Implement Devices To Scare Off Birds:

Scare tactics like this will keep birds at bay and out of your garden. There are different kinds of scare options on the market to choose from including visual and auditory devices. Visual devices might include things like balloons, predator decoys, and reflective tape. Auditory devices might come with recordings of predatory calls. If you are interested, ask the distributor for advice.

Placing these devices is very important to effectively scare off birds. Strategically place the devices throughout the garden to send a signal that danger is nearby. Visual devices should be placed near areas where the birds are focusing on your fruit trees and vegetable gardens. Auditory devices should be placed in areas to emulate movements and sounds to alarm the birds.

For the best results, you should rotate or move the devices to ensure the birds will not become comfortable with them. Birds can become accustomed to these devices making them useless. By moving the devices around, birds are less likely to feel comfortable around them and will stay away.

Hang Up Reflective Devices:

Hanging reflective devices on trees and elsewhere will inhibit birds from getting into the fruit trees and garden.

If you are in the market for reflective devices, choose your materials carefully. Aluminum foil strips, old CDs, or reflective tape are great materials that will flicker in the sunlight and scare off birds. Hang them on branches of fruit trees or stakes making sure they are visible at any angle. Placing reflective items correctly will ensure they will be very effective. Hanging these devices in places where birds naturally head, like fruit trees and bushes, will deter further action.

By regularly moving these devices around birds will not become familiar with them and will stay out of your garden.

Try Bird Repellents:

Repellents come in both natural and commercial options. Both are good for driving off birds.

Natural bird repellents include hanging bags holding mothballs or spices like cayenne peppers or garlic powder. These repellents will throw off orders that birds do not like, keeping them away from your garden. You can spray a mixture of water with a small amount of vinegar or dish soap to drive birds from your garden.

Commercial bird repellents are formulated to keep birds away without causing any harm to them or your plants. These products use ingredients like methyl anthranilate which is found in grape extract that birds do not like. Follow the instructions to get the best results.

Applications for bird repellent will differ depending on the product. Some repellents are sprayed onto the plants and the surroundings and may require hanging or placing the repellent in a specific area. Again, follow the instructions provided on the product for the best results.

Use Bird Spikes:

Bird spikes are great deterrents you can easily install to keep birds away from your garden and trees. They are made of thin, pointed spikes that are very uncomfortable for birds to land or perch on. For great results, choosing the right bird spikes is important. You should consider the species of birds that are reaping havoc on your trees and garden. Choose the spikes with the right height and spacing as well as the right material that will hold up to outdoor elements.

Correct installation of bird spikes is very important to guarantee they will work properly. Install these spikes on surfaces where birds land such as fences, hedges, and beans. Make sure the spikes cover the entire area and there are no gaps for birds to get through. Use screws or adhesives to secure the spikes depending on the type of the spikes and the surface they will be attached to.

Cleaning and caring for the spikes is critical for long-term effectiveness. Regularly inspect the spikes and look for any damage or build-up of debris that must be attended to. Regularly remove debris, leaves, and other stuff as they accumulate on the spikes. This accumulation can give birds a place to perch, reducing the chances of them moving on.

Use Distractions To Draw The Birds' Attention Elsewhere:

Using distractions can draw the birds' attention away from your garden and trees and toward other places where they will be welcomed.

You can offer water, food, and shelter to coax them away from places you are trying to protect. Plant flowers and shrubs that attract birds, drawing them away from protected areas. Use plants that produce seeds or berries that birds love such as coneflowers, and sunflowers.

Plant these flowers in an area that will attract birds away from your garden. You can start a bird-friendly area that will encourage the birds to stay away from unwanted areas.

Set up bird feeders that are heading in the opposite direction. Fill the feeders with bird food that will attract the specific species of birds you want to distract. Some popular foods among birds include:

• Sunflowers
• Safflowers
• Seed
• Corn
• Peanuts
• Nyjer seed
• Nectar
• Suet
• Mealworms

Birds need water to drink and bathe in. Offer a bird bath to draw the birds away from your garden. It's a good idea to set up a bird bath near the bird feeders. Keep the bird bath filled with clean water and regularly clean the bath to attract the birds.

Garden Scarecrow

Design And Set Up A Scarecrow:

Scarecrows have been a traditional choice for keeping birds away from gardens for a very long time. Scarecrows have always been designed to look like a human which birds see as a threat and will try to avoid. To design the perfect scarecrow, it must be a lifelike figure. Use old clothes, a hat, and gloves to look like a human. Stuff the clothes with straw or something else as the filler so it looks realistic. Add a face using buttons for eyes or a painted mask to improve its appearance.

Position and location are important. Place the scarecrow where birds will land such as close to crops or fruit trees. Keep in mind, you can create several scarecrows for the project and it might just be a lot of fun! Make sure the scarecrow is visible at different angles to increase its effect on birds. Also, you can move it from time to time to keep birds from becoming familiar with it.

You can add motion and noises for greater results. To create movement, attach pieces of cloth or streamers to the arms and body. Hang chimes or bells near the scarecrow to create more noise that will deter and startle birds.

Rotate And Move Objects:

Birds are not dumb creatures, they can become used to your practices if your object remains the same for any length of time. You need to move, rotate, or change some of your tactics to get better results. Changing your tactics will keep birds from becoming too comfortable with an object or approaching visual or auditory scare devices. Therefore, change your scarecrow movements on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. You want birds to be on guard and not become too familiar with your tactics.

You can create a combination of different scare tactics to keep birds at bay. Birds might feel comfortable with one approach but not another. By choosing multiple methods, simultaneously, you can continually deter birds and keep them away from your trees and garden. Choose reflective objects along with bird spikes to form a barrier that birds will have a tough time overcoming.

Be unpredictable. Change the positions of your scare devices, change your bird repellents, and rotate the locations of the bird spikes. You will notice birds will be less trusting and less likely to invade your garden.

Revamp Your Garden Layout:

Revamping your garden layout can reduce the access of birds in vulnerable areas and prevent damage. You can arrange vulnerable plants and crops strategically to reduce bird access. Birds have a habit of targeting fruit trees so place them toward the center of the garden away from fences or other structures birds use to get in. Place netting or trellises around your plants creating a barrier.

Place obstacles around vulnerable areas to keep birds away. Use things like wire mesh or fences to form a barrier that birds cannot get through. As an example, if you enclose your vegetable bed with chicken wire, it will be very difficult for birds to get to them. Just make sure the barriers are tall enough so there will be no access points for birds.

Some plants have similarities such as the scent, that birds find distasteful. Taking some of these plants and mixing them in with your favorite plants can create an environment that is not tempting to birds. Some plants you should consider include:

• Garlic
• Basil
• Marigold

Keep Your Garden In Good Shape:

If you keep your garden in good shape, birds will not find it appealing thereby serving your purpose. You will have to remove potential food sources and create an environment that is anything but pleasing which in turn will discourage birds from stopping by.

By removing fallen fruits on a regular basis, you will cut off their source of food. Set up a schedule to clean bird feeders and baths on a weekly basis to protect birds from bacteria and other harmful sources such as mold. Food sources are very attractive to birds, if these attractions are no longer available, they will not explore other areas of your garden in search of food.

Clean up debris such as old nests, feathers, and other materials birds will use to build new nests. Cleaning up debris in your garden will prevent birds from having places to hide.
