Protecting corn from pest birds is essential as they can be the biggest threat to your crops. Birds can eat your seeds, destroy your land and ruin your harvest. There are many tactics you can try to keep your corn safe. Here are a few tips to try to prevent birds from touching your corn.
Set Up a Scarecrow
Scare the pesky birds away with a scarecrow. Dress it up in flowy clothing so it looks like it’s moving. You can add some reflective material to make it extra visible. Then just move it around every couple of days to keep the birds away.
Install Some Netting
Simply measure the area of your corn field and purchase some netting. Make sure the netting is high quality to withstand damage from pest birds. It may be expensive, but cheap netting can be easily broken. Holes in the net can cause major devastation to your corn crop.
