Nothing beats waking up on a sunny spring morning to the sound of birds chirping in the distance. But there is one bird in particular that can give everyone a headache: crows! Crows are intelligent and mischievous birds that can create a nuisance on your property, home or in your garden. Check out our suggestions for keeping your crops, yard and property safe from these bothersome birds!
Crows have sharp beaks and talons, which make for the perfect tools to cut and rip into bags of seeds, trash or other sources of food. Once crows have a consistent and readily available source of food, they become much harder to get rid of. To prevent crows from using your property as an easy source of nourishment, consider the following tips:
- Put your garbage in a safe and secure bin
- Purchase food containers with locked lids
- Never leave bags of food or seeds out in the open
Purchase Small Bird Feeders to Keep Crows Out
Crows can often intimidate smaller varieties of birds into leaving your property, backyard or garden. If you’d like to welcome smaller birds to your property without inviting crows, purchase a bird feeder that won’t dispense nuts and seeds to birds over a certain size. However, be sure to clean up spilt food on the ground to prevent crows from gathering anyway.
Install Bird Netting over Gardens to Shield Crops
Crows are constantly looking for a reliable source of food, which makes your spring or summer garden the perfect target. To prevent nuisance crows from ruining your crops and plants, make sure to invest in a form of bird control that can protect your garden without harming it. Bird netting can be a viable option for bird control in your garden, but be sure to use the following tips to maximize its effectiveness:
- Purchase high quality, polyurethane bird netting
- Drape netting over a sturdy, wooden frame
- Check netting daily for entanglements with small animals
