Nuisance birds can quickly damage your crops, instantly diminishing your profits. Luckily, there are many ways you can incorporate bird deterrent tactics into the day to day nurturing of your crops. Here are a few ways you can fend of pests and protect your crops from birds.
Stop the Reproduction
To prevent more birds from bothering your crops, stop them from reproducing. All you need to do is tear down their nests. Do this every two weeks, using a large hook. Grab ahold of the nests and remove them from the area. Make sure to dispose of the nests and any eggs. This can be time-consuming and birds may still build new nests.
Relocate Pest Birds
If all other tactics fail, you may need to remove them. Hire a wildlife expert and they can come in to assess your situation. If possible, they can capture the birds and release them in a new area, away from your crops. Remember that even if the birds are removed, they may still come back.
Refresh Your Land
If your property contains things that attract birds, there are no amount of tactics you can try to keep them away. If you have any open water, fill it in. Anywhere that could make a good nesting area for pest birds should be covered. Limit access to any food sources. However, with your crops, this could be difficult.
