Our neighbors have been feeding the crows bread on a regular basis. Lately the crows have been ripping up the lawn as well as eating the sunflower seedlings. What can we do to prevent the damage from destroying our entire vegetable garden? P.S. we have a dog who chases the crows but they still return. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, see if you can persuade your neighbors to stop feeding the crows. Promise them a share of your garden if you need to!

You can cover your seedlings with fabric row cover, such as reemay, supported by wire hoops, available at most garden centers. Bird netting is no match for crows. Best of luck!
