Gardening and urban farming are more popular than ever, with more people discovering the joys of growing their own food. Part of a well-planned garden includes thinking of pest control, and finding effective ways to use more of what you grow.Common birds can wreak havoc on your garden crop, including digging up newly-planted seeds and seedlings, pecking holes in mature fruits and vegetables, and spreading contamination through droppings. Even a small flock of birds landing in your garden at the wrong time can result in catastrophe!
The good news is, most species of garden-damaging birds are afraid of hawks, and FruitDefender gives them every reason to land somewhere else. Not only does FruitDefender scare birds, but it can also attract wild hawks to hand out nearby and help out.
Other methods to keep birds out of your garden, like shiny balloons and ribbons, netting, sound devices, and owl decoys all have serious drawbacks:
- Urban-dwelling birds are already accustomed to flashes of light, so flashes from ribbons and balloons are unlikely to work at all.
- Netting is expensive and environmentally unfriendly, deploying it can be very difficult, and birds can even become tangled in it and die - not ideal.
- Sound devices run out of batteries, annoy the neighbors, and birds quickly become accustomed to them.
- Most owl decoys are stationary, and if they do move, their batteries run out, leaving your garden vulnerable
There is hope! FruitDefender works all day, every day, and unlike stationary owl decoys, it moves around in the wind. It's easy to deploy, and just one FruitDefender can cover even the largest gardens. Unlike flashers, FruitDefender taps into birds' instinctual fears of hawks, a fear birds never overcome. It is 100% non harmful, environmentally friendly, and quiet so it won't annoy neighbors.
Deploying FruitDefender in time to prevent bird damage is critical! Don't wait too long and give birds a head start.
