We covered our pole bean seeds with a floating row cover to prevent birds from taking the seedlings. At what height of bean plant is it safe to remove the row cover?

Birds are only interested in the seeds, not the plants, so once the seedlings have sprouted and grown to five or six inches high, you can remove the row cover.
