fruit trees - Knowledgebase Question

I have buds on my pomagrant trees and each day I look more are gone. I have a wire net around the base to keep cats from using it as a cat box. So I think the birds may be taking the fruit buds. Is there anything other than the wire netting to keep the birds from eating the fruit?

How odd! I think I'd drape birdnetting over the plant - at least until the fruit sets. Aside from a physical barrier, there's not much else you can do to keep the birds at bay.
