Birds Eating My Garden NOT Hot Tip

Updated on May 14, 2009

BIRDS:: NO Loitering

Don,t you just love it? You grow this beautiful garden and have all this incredible food popping up from the ground. You are PROUD. You did a fine job. Then one morning or notice your garden appears smaller or shorter. Yikes. You run to take the appropriate action to find the birds have been having a picnic with the corn, beans, radishes?, beets.What do birds NOT like? Think now. OK, time is up.. SNAKES. So make one out of your Garden hose Wrap it up like a snake I did not say the woman down the street that screams at your kids for stepping on her lawn. Did I? (FTF) for the fun silly.

For reels wrap the hose into a tight circle stacking each loop around on top of the others, making it a bit smaller. Build Snake Eyes as tall as you would like. Use a 6ft, 12ft. hose, you choose. Poke the last foot or so into the top of the hose poking the spray nozzle towards the garden. Walla," snake a crow". The "scare a crow," has done wonders for many years. Trust me snake eyes can get the job done. You will not be defeated. It is too cool how the small things can be such a blessing.You gotta love it. The birds FLEE. They do not care for the snake. Wonder Why? The birds get a bit smarter so move the hose every other day at least.

                                         Cheerio..... 4 now.. With Love,Patti B,

                                                May God Bless You and Yours.

      Your garden hose idea is a good one. Plastic/rubber snakes look very real and are as low as $1 in some stores, and they even fool the neighbors. Ours tried to kill one with a hoe! We've used them with great success.
