Protect Strawberries from Birds

  • Set Up Bird Netting
  • Lay Around False Predators
  • Hang Reflective Material

Strawberries are delicious, which is probably why you’re growing them. Now, let’s imagine you’re a bird and you see beautifully lined rows of red, juicy strawberries ripe for the picking. Do you think you would have second thoughts about diving in for a snack? Not likely, but Avian Enterprises is here to teach you how to keep them away.

Set Up Bird Netting

Use bird netting to put up a wall between birds and your strawberries. Setting up netting is one of the most time consuming options available, but it puts up considerable defense. Make sure your netting is a fine mesh to ensure greater protection.

Lay Around False Predators

Birds have a hard time telling the difference between real predators and fake ones. Play this to your advantage and set up false predators to scare birds away! A few options include, but are not limited to:


  • Scarecrows
  • Faux Owl or Eagle
  • Rubber snakes, and more!

Hang Reflective Material

This tip goes hand in hand with the last. Instead of setting up false predators, use bright reflective material. Hanging up anything metal or shiny will do the trick like tinfoil or CD’s. The idea is to startle or confuse the bird. Once they’ve been spooked, they’ll fly away.
