Fall is apple season! But you won’t be able to enjoy your apples if birds get to them first. Each year, thousands of apples are wasted because birds peck holes into them and they begin to rot. Luckily, there are a variety of ways you can keep birds away from apple trees so you can enjoy them yourself this fall season. Here are some tips to protect your apples from the experts at Avian Control.
One of the simplest ways to drive the birds away is by hanging noise makers in or around the apple trees. These can be anything from bells to empty bottles or cans rattling together. The noise will bother or frighten the birds, thus relocating them without causing them any harm. The only hitch with noisemakers is that some birds may not be bothered by the noise and stick around anyway.
Not only is fall the season for apples, but it’s also the season for the ever faithful scarecrow! This bird deterrent technique has evolved from a once-useful tool to scare away crows, to a traditional symbol of farming. You can try making your best scarecrow for the birds, but years of this bird repellent method have proven that birds are more grateful for the perch than they are scared of the device.

The process of netting is simply handing a net over the trees. This will prevent the birds from having access to your apple trees. While netting will protect your apples, it can be a bit labor intensive to set up, and it doesn’t necessarily repel the birds, but it will save your apples!

- It can be easily applied as a spray or a fog
