Bird Netting - It Keep's em Out!!
Birds are fun to watch..... when it is not gardening season. Once our gardens
are growing, birds become a pest. We don't want those birds eating our
strawberries, nipping at our sweet pea plants, or snacking on our blueberries.
There's an easy solution to keep birds from getting to your crop before you
do. Bird netting keeps them out, along with deer, bunnies and rabbits, too.
Our bird netting is strong and long lasting. Multi-strand design makes it
strong. UV protection, keeps this pest net from breaking down and getting
brittle in the sun.

Shrub Guard Pest Net Bags - These are really neat for quickly wrapping
up a bush or shrub. Its quite popular for blueberry bushes. Simply roll it
on, and your blueberries are secure. Roll it up a ways, to harvest the fruit.
We recommend a frame around the plant.
Pest Netting Sheets - A flat pest netting sheet
works well in the vegetable garden. It comes in varying sizes. Simply
drape it over your plants, and the birds are shut out. It is also commonly
used to wrap the canopy of fruit trees, so birds can not get to the fruit.
It may not be practical in the flower garden, where the beauty
of seeing the flowers is the reason of the
garden. Buy Bird Netting Sheets now.

How to Make a Bird Netting Frame:
We recommend constructing a simple frame around your plants. While netting
is lightweight, the plant will grow through the mesh holes in the netting.
And, leaves that the netting rests upon, can be damaged in high heat.
Here are a few ideas how to make a frame for your netting:
1. Political sign frames. Right after political elections, those
over-abundant yard signs are tossed...... literally tossed into the garbage.
Take two signs. Discard the cardboard part of the sign (please recycle).
Take the U-shaped metal frame, and cross-cross two of them over a plant.
Slide a pest net bag over the frame. Place a brick or rock on the bottom
edge of the netting that touches the ground. It's almost instant protection.
2. The Two Tiered Greenhouse frame:
Many of us have a two-tiered greenhouse, that we put on our deck in early
spring for use as a cold frame for our seedlings. After the seedlings are
planted, the greenhouse is put away until next spring.
Take the plastic cover off the frame. Now, wrap the frame in a sheet of netting,
or simply pull an eight foot bag over it. Set the frame over a blueberry
bush (or whatever you want to cover). Now, the birds are outside, looking
3. Rebar and Old Tennis Balls
Pound 3 - 4 pieces of rebar into the ground around the plant. Take old tennis
balls and cut a small "X" into them. Push the tennis ball onto the top
of each rebar. It's amazing how smoothly a net bag slips on and off! We were
given this method from the owner of a blueberry farm. He uses this
on hundreds of bushes!
Note: You can also use wooden poles, plastic tubing, or other metal
