How to Keep Birds Out of Gardens

Bird Control for Gardens

It can be particularly difficult to keep birds out of your garden, especially when you have a buffet of ripening fruits and vegetables. With the help of effective garden bird control products, you are sure to keep those pest birds at bay. Bird B Gone offers a range of solutions to choose from for your gardening. 

Prepare Your Garden Before the Birds Show Up

Preventing a bird problem before it happens will always be easier than targeting a large flock of birds that been around for several seasons. Protect your garden before the birds show up, is the best way to say it. Choose from the following DIY garden bird deterrents.

Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products. 

Best Bird Deterrent for Gardening

Using something as simple as garden netting will significantly decrease the amount of bird activity, as it prevents birds from being able to feed on the fruits and vegetables in your garden.

3/4" Garden Netting

  • Best way to block birds from attacking fruits and vegetables
  • Durable lightweight net allows plants to grow properly
  • Create inexpensive framework to tent garden netting over plants
  • Perfect for DIY garden netting
  • 14’ x 100’ net can be cut to smaller sizes

Bird Repellents for Gardens 

Liquid bird repellent sprays, such as Avian Control, can be sprayed directly on the plants to protect from pest birds. The active ingredient Methyl Anthranilate (MA) irritates birds when consumed. The birds learn to avoid the areas the spray has been applied to. It is recommended to pair liquid repellents with a secondary form of bird control such as a visual or sound deterrent.

Avian Control Liquid Spray
