Using Bird Netting for Gardens to Deter Spring Birds

Using Bird Netting for Gardens to Deter Spring Birds

Posted on May 15, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Garden Bird Netting

It's spring, and you know what that means. Birds. Lots of birds. All eager to nibble and peck at the ripening fruits and vegetables in your garden. Crows in particular can quickly devour virtually every kind of fruit and will even go after your seeds. Robins will dive right into your prized veggies. It can happen quickly. One week, your garden looks like a smorgasbord of natures bounty; the next week, its as if a murder of crows destroyed everything in their path. It is now time to get bird netting for gardens.

Without proper bird control measures, your garden will be at the mercy of spring birds. You cant just scare birds away with blasts from a water hose, noisemakers, or hanging old CD discs from trees. Birds get used to all these and will continue to invade your garden.

Fortunately, there are some highly effective ways to keep pest birds away from your garden this spring. The bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone have a few suggestions:

Block Out Bird Pests with Garden Bird Netting

Bird-B-Gone's Garden Bird Netting creates an impenetrable barrier that prevents pest birds from getting at vegetable gardens. The netting is light, easy to handle and designed for temporary garden use. It addresses the problem of bird pests humanely, without poisons or traps, tactics you may be reluctant to use, especially if you have pets or children. Bird-B-Gone bird netting for gardens is made of tough, UV-protected polypropylene and comes in a 3/4-inch mesh to seal out todays most troublesome bird pests. To block out smaller birds, -inch and -inch mesh sizes are available. Bird netting for gardens comes in sections or bulk rolls of 14 x 100 feet and 14 x 200 feet. The large rolls are easily trimmed down to protect specific areas of your garden. To keep bird pests from your tomatoes and other vegetables, you can wrap individual plants in this netting. For larger gardens, you can suspend the netting around an entire area. Just make sure the netting is firmly secured to ensure it stays taut. Zip ties, twine or similar materials are ideal.

Scare Birds Away with Sonic Bird Deterrents
