5 Reasons Deploying FruitDefender Makes More Sense than Putting up Netting

1. Easier to deploy, year after year.

Netting requires an extensive infrastructure to support it, and must be removed to prune, maintain, and harvest rows. In an orchard or vineyard, this can take several people days to complete. FruitDefender can be deployed in a few minutes, and it can be moved far more easily than netting. FruitDefender also doesn't need to be removed for pruning, maintenance, or harvest.

2. Saves Costs And Time

With netting, each individual plant needs to be covered.  One FruitDefender can cover multiple rows and be seen patrolling form all directions.  It can protect up to 5 acres (depending on deployment height), which makes it far cheaper per acre than netting. An entire orchard or vineyard can also be protected in a single afternoon, making FruitDefender much less time-consuming to deploy than nets.

3. Environmentally Friendly, No Plastic Parts

With earth facing a plastic crisis, more plastic netting is not an environmentally friendly option for fruitgrowers.  Discarded netting can end up in lakes and oceans, harming wildlife. FruitDefender is environmentally friendly, because it's made from metal and is durable, so it can be used over and over again.  

4. FruitDefender is Wildlife Friendly

Most birds are protected species, but plastic netting can trap and kill them when they become tangled in it. FruitDefender doesn't have this problem - it is 100% safe for birds.  It only scares them away from your fruit!

5. Protect Difficult Areas

FruitDefender can protect crops not easily nettable, like large-sized fruit trees and low crops like strawberries and tomatoes.  


While netting might initially seem like a good solution to your bird problem, it has significant drawbacks, especially for large areas.  Consider trying FruitDefender instead.  It can provide protection for a fraction of the cost, hassle, and time!
