How to protect strawberry from birds

Fragrant berries of strawberry – favourite delicacy for gluttonous birds: these "predators" continually strive to manage for a while on strawberry plantations. Fortunately, there are many ways checked by time to protect tasty harvest from birds.

It is required to you

  • - audio recordings;
  • - audio- and videotapes or New Year's tinsel;
  • - pegs;
  • - hammer;
  • - fishing line;
  • - CD disks;
  • - nails;
  • - grid;
  • - cat.


1. Buy audio recording on which shouts of birds of prey, for example, of owl or hawk are written down and also the shouts of relatives of wreckers warning birds about danger and regularly lose it. By means of such audio recordings you will be able to frighten off from strawberry plantation not only birds, but also rodents. But this effective method of pest control has essential shortcoming: it is better not to use it in the settlement as not palatable loud sounds will hardly please the neighbors living near you.

2. Hammer pegs (about a meter with height) on perimeter of strawberry plantation. It is desirable that the distance between row the standing pegs made not less than 50 cm. Pull on them fishing line and fix on it New Year's tinsel or the cassette tape cut on 20-25 cm pieces. Under the influence of bright sunlight "web" it will be dazzling to shine, and at the slightest movement of air will begin to move: all this very strongly frightens off birds.

3. On each bed of strawberry hammer on several peg. Pass fishing line throughout old CD disks and hang out them on pegs. Being poured in the sun and fluctuating on wind, disks will create visibility of the movement on the site and to frighten off birds wreckers.

4. On perimeter of strawberry plantation establish pegs 50-60 cm high and from above hammer nail into each of them. Lay from above the metal or plastic gauze and fix it by means of the tacks hammered in advance. Such construction will reliably protect strawberry harvest from gluttonous forty and thrushes.

5. Get on giving cat, and that is better also than two. Presence of such predator on personal plot will forever beat off desire to steal strawberry from beds from birds.
