What to use to keep crows out of garden? Tried fake owl and tin plates
Mogie on Apr 03, 2018
- Fruit crops can be protected with flexible bird netting. You can find some at a local garden center or hardware store. Four-inch mesh is recommended as it will keep the big crows out, but still allow smaller birds to slip through.
- Place netting securely at the base of a shrub or the trunk of a tree. This keep crows out from the bottom of your trees. Nets can also be used for growing crops.
- Protect seedlings with covers. Corn can be protected by placing a cup or bag over each ear after the silk has turned brown.

Crows are smart - and mate for life - respect them.Helpful ReplyRichard on Apr 04, 2018Some may not like my idea; but, it works. My dad had the same problem with a pecan tree in our yard and asked a local farmer what he could do. He had already tried what you used and it did not help. The farmer told him to either shoot 1 crow or find one already dead and hang it in the tree. crows will not go near a area were another dead crow is. This is a old farmers choice that works.Helpful ReplySign Up to Answer
- Fishing line or cord can be placed in grid like patterns high above the garden to prevent crows from swooping in from above.
