Throughout the world, regardless of the crop, farmers routinely lose parts of their harvest to birds. Without some effective bird control measures, birds will peck away at fruits and vegetables grown in concentrated areas simply because they provide a quick and easy meal. Food storage areas such as barns and granaries also attract birds, causing loss and damage. Here are two of today’s most effective pest bird deterrents the pros recommend.
Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic
Ideal for farmers and growers, Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic devices broadcast bird predator and distress calls over wide fields. Birds hear the sounds and instinctively avoid the area. The highly versatile solar sonic bird deterrent can broadcast distress and predator calls for 22 species of birds. Unlike ultrasonic devices, which birds can’t hear, the Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic is well within a bird’s hearing range. The device is built of rugged weather resistant materials. It is powered by solar energy and has a built in sensor to turn the device off at night, conserving energy. The built-in speaker covers an acre.
Perfect for keeping birds from your grapes and vines, Garden Bird Netting is a lightweight mesh used by many growers. The netting is quality made from a durable, UV-protected polypropylene. It’s strong, lightweight, virtually invisible, and designed for temporary use. It’s available in two roll sizes: 14′ x 100′ and 14′ x 200′ and can be easily cut to the needed size. You can also choose from three different “mesh” sizes–1/4″ mesh, 1/2″ mesh and 3/4″ mesh. To simplify installation, you should invest in some garden bird netting clips.
