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
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.
