Put Fruitdefender to work for you!
With FruitDefender deployed in your orchard, vineyard, berry patch, or garden, you can rest easy knowing that birds aren't!
FruitDefender™ is especially effective because it mimics natural predators. Fruit-damaging birds, such as starlings, robins, flickers, sparrows, blackbirds, and grackles are hunted by hawks and fear their presence. The FruitDefender™ is designed for movement in the wind, causing it to "fly" overhead. Stationary owl decoys are quickly ignored by birds, and cheap plastic hawks are too flimsy and unstable, but a sturdy, moving deterrent like FruitDefender™ is far more effective. Due to its metal construction and gliding design, the FruitDefender™ maintains the appearance of a hawk on active patrol that terrifies birds.
A Birds Eye View of FruitDefender in Action
Terror From Above!
Wondering just what FruitDefender looks like to a bird? A video is worth a thousand words...
When birds see FruitDefender flying overhead, their natural instinct to flee takes over, and they leave fast!
Birds flying overhead see a hawk patrolling the area and don't even bother stopping for a snack, sparing your fruit from damage and destruction.
Where FruitDefender really shines over traditional stationary bird scares is in its natural movement. To a bird, it looks terrifyingly like a hawk lingering overhead, waiting to pounce!
Orchards, Vineyards, Berry Patches, and Gardens
Guarding Fruit Orchards
Apple, pear, cherry, peach, and plum orchards are perfect for FruitDefender.
During development, reductions in bird damage as much as 90% were seen, saving tens of thousands of dollars worth of fruit from the ravages of bird damage.
Keeping Vineyards Safe
For vineyards, birds are an eternal menace. Many vineyards spend thousands of dollars to cover their vines in expensive netting to keep birds out.
The FruitDefender offers a much more cost-effective solution, and can reduce and nearly eliminate bird damage.
Defending Backyard Gardens
FruitDefender works just as well to protect gardens. The same birds that damage fruit in orchards and vineyards will also wreak havoc on garden plants, like strawberries, raspberries and tomatoes if given the chance.
Don't let them ruin your garden!
Cost Effective, Made in America
Each FruitDefender™ can protect between 5-6 acres, making it an ideal choice for cost-effective bird protection, even if your fruit farm requires multiple FruitDefender™ deployments. It is far cheaper per acre than putting netting over every row, and can also be re-deployed season after season, maximizing your investment.
FruitDefender™ was created and tested in the USA, and is made in Jordan, Minnesota by American workers. Rest easy knowing that by purchasing FruitDefender™, you're supporting American workers and their families!
Chris in Florida
This summer I've had a terrible problem with birds eating the grapes on my backyard vines. Its maddening watching the birds land on my vines and eat the ripe grapes, then fly away before I can stop them. I put up the fruit defender hawk yesterday, they've already stopped coming around! It works very well, and I highly recommend it.
I purchased a FruitDefender for use in my sweet corn; it worked so well I ordered several more. And I've told numerous friends and fellow growers about the results I've had!
I have used the FruitDefender for my home garden and have been very pleased with the results. So I believe this is valuable not only for the commercial fruit growers but also for home gardeners who are frustrated with the birds feasting on their fruit.
This has been a great help in decreasing the birds damage to my grapes. I have told other growers about it and know they have purchased it as well.
