Tired of crows making a meal out of your corn? Find the best way to keep your corn safe from crows and other pest birds. Here are the top five methods to protect your corn from pest crows with Avian Control.
1. Keep Seedlings Safe
Crows are known to get the corn before it even has a chance to grow. The first step to protecting your corn from crows is to plant seedlings deep into the ground. To ensure crows and other pest birds can’t reach your corn seedlings, plant your corn at least one and a half inches below the ground.
2. Protect Your Corn With Visual Deterrents
There are many visual deterrents that can be employed to save your corn from crows. Visual deterrents work by using a bird’s natural instincts against it. This method of bird control makes birds feel threatened, causing them to fly away. Visual bird deterrents include, but are not limited to:
- Wind socks
- Decoy predatory animals
- Reflective or shiny materials, and more!
3. Scare Away Crows With Sound Machines
Scare crows away from your corn with sound machines. Using a variety of noises, these machines make birds feel in danger and leave. Sound machines can be used in a few different ways:
- Predatory bird calls
- Bird distress calls
- Loud or disruptive noises
4. Cover Corn With Netting
Netting can be set up above your corn to protect it from hungry crows. Netting covers the top of your crop, by stopping birds from being able to reach it. This method of bird control can be highly labor intensive if you have a large crop and may also hinder the growth of your corn.
5. Use Avian Control Liquid Bird Repellent
