Farmers have likely been dealing with bird problems ever since we learned to plant seeds. Birds peck away at fruits and vegetables being grown in concentrated areas as they provide a quick and easy meal.
Across the globe, no matter the crop, farmers routinely lose parts of the harvest to birds. In smaller settings, home owners with backyard gardens, fruit trees or berry bushes are constantly battling birds. Food storage area such as barns and granaries also attract birds.
The USDA has documented one of the worst national outbreaks of bird flu since December last year, an epidemic that more than doubles the number of birds affected so far across the U.S. The USDA went on to warn poultry farmers that this bird flu virus can kill nearly an entire flock in just 48 hours, adding that over 5.3 million chickens in an Iowa farm recently fell victim to the avian influenza or bird flu. With over 58 million egg-laying hens, Iowa is the nation's largest egg-producing state. Iowa is one of 12 U.S. states with bird flu infections since the beginning of 2015.
