Every year, homeowners are plagued with pest birds that want to live and eat outside of their yards. Birds like sparrows and crows love to eat the seeds from your newly planted garden, while geese love to devour your lawn. If you have fruit trees, they are also not safe from bird pests. So how can a homeowner scare away the birds?
There is an easy way to scare away the birds. Use realistic predator decoys in your garden to scare away birds. Birds have a built-in dislike for certain menacing silhouettes, such as the red-tailed hawk and coyotes. Using lures can be very easy and inexpensive, saving you money on lost crops, lawns, and fruit.
Hawk lures are best used to scare birds away from your garden and fruit trees. You can hang the hawk decoys on the trees, life as a hawk will scare other birds away. Small birds will perceive the hawk’s decoy as a threat and will simply look elsewhere for food.
Place hawk decoys on garden stakes to protect your garden from bird pests. The hawk will look over your garden, driving away the birds with its presence. Every day or two, simply move the hawk decoy to a different area of the garden so the other birds won’t get used to it being in one spot.
To protect the entire patio or pool area, a hawk decoy can be installed on the patio deck or on the edge of the roof. Make sure the hawk is seen by the other pest birds, they will think the hawk decoy is waiting for dinner to come.
Coyote decoys are used to scare geese of pests away from green areas such as parks, golf courses, greenbelts, and yards. Coyote lures are easily assembled and attached directly to the lawn. It is best to get several coyote decoys and place them in a “pack” formation. In this way, animals such as ducks and deer will think that the coyotes are hunting for food and will flee the area. Most coyote lures are made from a plastic material and stainless steel rods so you don’t have to worry about removing them when watering your lawn.
Predator lures are an easy and inexpensive way to keep birds out of your yard. As with any type of bird control product, it is best to install the lures before the birds have made a home in your garden. Once birds nest in an area, they are much more difficult to get rid of.
