Fall is coming and you know what that means! It’s time to start growing your fall crops. Growing fall crops can be very enjoyable and worthwhile, but all of that hard work can go to waste if birds make your garden or farm their home. Fortunately, there are many different methods of bird control you can use to keep them off your carrots, cabbages and collards! Check out these tips on preparing for fall crops with bird control methods of all sorts.
SEE: How to Repel Birds
Netting is the process of literally covering your crops with a net so that birds cannot come in contact with them. While this can prevent birds from pecking at or eating your crops, the process involves a great deal of physical labor and can take up a great deal of time, especially if you are growing your crops on a large farm.

Using scare tactics to keep birds away from your fall crops is one of the more creative forms of bird control. Some effective and safe scare tactics include:
- Going the old fashioned route and putting up a scarecrow
- Hanging wind chimes
- Putting up shiny objects (foil, metal, or anything reflective) where the glare should drive the birds away
- Motion detected sound or water blasters
While all of these scare tactics can bother the birds or even drive them away, there is still no guarantee that it will stop them from making your crops their own.

Using Avian Control’s EPA registered liquid bird repellent is the most effective method of bird control. It requires minimal labor and will actually repel birds from your garden or farm, as well as prevent them from returning.
