My figs are being enjoyed by the birds. Tell me your experience with bird netting and which are the most effective and how to set up the netting.

Sadly enough, my figs have become food for birds and squirrels and not much I can do about it. Smiling

Hi Jo,
We did pick most of the figs (and boy, they were delicious) before the birds got them.

Check out the netting at americannettings.com. They have good prices. I just ordered shade cloth for my raised beds.

(Remember the "s" on nettings, because there's another company called americannetting, without the "s". Not the same...

I got some at Wal-Mart for my strawberries. Justone net was large enough to go over the whole stand
