Answer: Continuous flagging is the most effective way to keep birds from crops such as corn. Stakes are placed 15 to 20 feet apart all around the corn patch and a long flag of cloth or shiny mylar is attached to the top. The flag can be tied directly or tied first to a string and the string attached to the stake (gives more play in the wind). Set up the stakes before the corn is attractive to the crows. Another method, frqeuently used for ripening fruit trees or small fruits, is bird netting.
