Recycle CD's As Garden Pest Control

To help keep birds and animals out of the garden, you can use the CD disks you are always getting in the mail from AOL, Earthlink, etc. You can use just one, but it is better to use two glued together with the shiny side out. After the glue has set up, drill a small hole in them and put a piece of fishing line through the hole and hang in the garden. When the sun shines on it, it acts like a prism and beautiful colors reflect from it when the wind blows it around. Even if it don't keep the birds and animals out, it is pretty to look at.

For years I've used the large outdoor type Christmas light strings. The large bulb will go through the center of the cd nicely. When the lights and cd's are strung on trees, bushes, porch support poles, etc., the least amount of wind will cause them to move and reflect the bulb light everywhere. It is really pretty. When the Christmas lights are taken down, remove the cd's and store them with your lights.
