With A Little Help, You Can Protect Your Grapes From Birds And Insects

Birds can be a huge problem when they discover a vineyard and know food is on the way. When it comes to insects, not only are they attracted to the natural sugar found in grapes but love eating the leaves as well. Worry not, help is on the way. It's not difficult to protect grapes from birds and bugs, it's just learning what steps you should take to drive them away.

You have worked very hard to grow your grapes so the frustration level must be through the ceiling. Take a deep breath, it's not difficult to protect your grapes and it's not expensive either. Protecting your vineyard will only take a little of your time and effort.

Protect Your Grapes Now!

You do not have to settle for birds ripping off your grapes. The good news, there are solutions within reach. I believe the best remedy for driving birds off, as well as insects, is using actual physical barriers including netting and covers.

There are many other devices on the market you should try before finding what will turn things around for you. On the upside, birds in general are not really all that attracted to grapes until they have ripened. You will have a few weeks at the end of summer to drive off birds and wish them adios! In the meantime, you must have a plan of action because birds can devour and ruin your crops in a matter of hours. Here are some great options you should look into:

To start with, bag up your grapes when they first start to ripen. Purchase some mesh organza bags which are considered the best for allowing the flow of air and the fabric will let you see when the grapes are ripe. Other alternatives, you can use tulle fabric for the bags or simply use paper bags.

Vineyard Netting to Protect Grapes


Just slide the bags over a cluster of grapes then either tie or staple the bags to the top. Just stay away from plastic bags, the grapes could easily spoil or grow mildew.

Grapevine Covers

These covers are lightweight to keep birds and bugs off the leaves while protecting bunches from being eaten by insects and birds. I personally like tulle fabric. This fabric is lightweight while allowing air, sunlight, and water in for the health of the plants.

Bird Netting

Standard bird netting is an excellent choice. It will keep birds out and you do not have to cover your grapes until they start to ripen. The netting is inexpensive, always available, and will do the trick. Choose a netting that has small openings, ½ inch is the best option. Just make sure to remove the netting when you harvest as the netting can get tangled up in the tendrils of the vines.

Scare Tape

Scare tape is a proven object to drive off birds. Many vineyard owners rely on scare tape because it's very effective. This tape is also called flash tape, just hang it near the vines and when the wind picks up the reflection and noise coming from the tape will scare off the birds.

A Bird Repellent Spray

Even though this is not particularly effective on its own, working with other devices it's fine. You will need to stock up on spray, especially during heavy rainfalls.

Wind Chimes

Wind chimes are great for a nice touch to your outdoor structures as they are designed in many different looks from beautiful to just downright cute. Outside of their appearances, the noise coming off these chimes will scare off birds, keeping your winged friends away.

Protection From Insects

Some bugs like Japanese beetles will feed off the leaves of grapes and destroy them and probably kill the plant as well. To keep the damage under control, cover the grapevine with fabric. My chosen fabric is tulle, bugs can't get in.

Cover Your Grapevines

Gardeners are always looking for new solutions for protecting grapevines. Many people think it's impossible to protect vines because of their height and size. Actually, covering them is not as difficult as it might seem and will not take very much time to complete.

Because grapes cannot ripen off the vine, they must remain in place which draws even more birds and insects. So, you must have a plan to protect the vines and the grapes. It can be a little difficult but it will be well worth your time and energy to stop birds from ruining your hard work.

Installing Netting To Your Grapevines

Let's face it, grapevines are tall and expansive so it can be a little challenging to cover them with a netting or fabric. Here are some steps I use for covering grapevines with tulle. Here are the tools you will need for the installation:

• Clothespins
• Tulle Fabric
• Tall Stakes (optional)
• Garden Ties (optional)
• Scissors (optional)

First – attach the fabric to the support. Staple the tulle to the top of the pergola or other structure. If your vines are not growing on a wooden structure, use ties to attach the fabric covering to the trellis. You should get tall garden stakes to support the fabric or you can drape it over the top of the smaller vines.

Secondly, take the tulle and wrap it around the grapevine loosely and encircle the vines with this cloth. Just make sure the fabric is loose enough so it will not restrict the vines. This is important if you plan to leave the fabric on all summer.

Lastly, secure the fabric – Carefully fold the fabric closed using clothespins to fasten the fabric together. Also, the clothespins will make it much easier to open the fabric when you need access to the vines or adjusting the fabric.

You need to protect grapevines from birds and insects and this is a great way to drive birds and insects back. It's not expensive and simple enough to do. In the aftermath, you will know you made the right decision.. By all means, try some other techniques to protect your grapes. You and your family will have the opportunity to enjoy the rich tasty flavors from the grapes when you find out what works best for your grapevines.
