Here is what I did for the cars and I am thinking it would work as well for the birds on the strawberries:

Put up a line of string across or around your garden where they bother the most:

Hang these on the string:

  • Trash bag shredded into a lot of long wavy things that blow in the wind

  • CD on a string

  • Chimes (they hate these)

  • Little windmills you buy at the dollar store, stick them in the dirt by the strawberries.

  • Buy fake snakes and place them around

  • Foil plates hanging or foil butterflies made out of foil tied together in the middle..it looks like a bowtie.

Hope these work! (06/24/2009)

P>Very best idea: Rescue an outdoor cat. Our little hunter-cat keeps birds away!

  • You can also buy a "Motion Sensor Owl"

  • You can also hand old CDs that flash in the wind and reflect sunlight

  • Use a motion sensor tape recording of human's voices or predator birds

  • Use a supersonic bird chase

  • place a net over the plants

  • place rubber snakes around bushes and move them daily

  • buy a "wirley bird repeller"

  • Metallic streamers, like metallic ribbon from the dollar store tied to vine:

  • At the dollar store I've seen lengths of gold "rope" with attached coin-shaped plastic thin metallic tags that sparkle. This is sold in the ribbon area of Dollar Tree.

  • Irri-Tape iridescent bird deterrent foil combines holography, wind and light to irritate birds:

  • Hang Christmas ornaments and tinsel that sparkle and move in the wind

    I have read that early in the season to paint rocks about the size of strawberries red and place in plants. The birds try these and give up. I don't know if it works may be worth a try. I use old net and sheer curtains to cover my plants and this does work. Thrift stores are a good source for sheer curtains.
