Birds Stripping the Fruit off Your Trees? Protect Fruit with Garden Netting

Posted on June 23, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Garden Bird Netting

If your little fruit trees bore fruit recently only to have it eaten and pecked away by pest birds, you need a pest bird deterrent. Yes, you can temporarily scare birds off with a shout, a clap of the hands or a blast from your garden hose. But sure as birds fly, you can bet they'll be back pecking and eating your precious apricots, plums, or peaches the minute you go back in the house. Birds can also damage your fruit by contaminating it with their droppings, droppings that can carry any of 60 known diseases.

To protect your young fruit trees from bird pests, the bird control pros at Bird B Gone recommend you use Garden Netting. It sure beats standing guard over your trees 24/7 to keep pest birds away from your ripening fruit.

Garden Netting Physically Blocks Birds Out

Bird control experts far and wide recommend Garden Netting to block pest birds from young fruit trees. Properly installed, this netting prevents birds from pecking at ripening fruit hanging from branches. Birds have an excellent memory and will return to the trees they fed on and nested in last year. If yours is the unlucky tree birds visited in times past, you can bet they'll be back this year. Garden netting is one very effective way to ensure they'll leave your tree alone.

Choose the 1/4" mesh for small birds, the 1/2" mesh for medium sized birds, and 3/4" mesh for large birds. The netting is easy to install. Bird B Gone Poly-Clips are specifically designed to work with garden netting and are recommended to keep the netting nice and taught.
