Here are questions related to Protecting Grapes from Birds.
Birds are eating all of my grapes. Any ideas to keep this from happening? I tried to scare them with bright objects on the vines as well as shiny Christmas ornaments. I made a cayenne spray, but that will get in the way of the flavor. I am stumped!
Birds seem to avoid shiny aluminum foil and movement of the wind making the foil swing around. I know this sounds mighty strange, but the circular plastic covers from coffee, cream cheese, sour cream etc. can be covered with aluminum foil (not expensive good stuff, get it at the Dollar Store, the birds won't care).
Use a paper punch to make a hole in each and use thread or yard to tie each one to the grape vines. This will only work for about two years as the birds get used to it, but it's an immediate, inexpensive start!
