|It's nearly impossible to keep critters and birds from raiding your grapes unless you place physical barriers around the clusters. You might try wrapping them with nylon pantyhose, paper bags, or something similar before the grapes begin to show color. As long as there is good air circulation between the wraps and the grapes, your harvest should be safe. Wish I had better solutions!|
