Q.How to Keep Birds Away From the Fruit on the Tree

What can I do to stop the birds from eating my peaches while they’re growing on the tree? They eat a little from each one and some even end up on the ground where other pests munch on them.

I advice you to use chemical repellents-are useful in fruit tree pest control, often helping to protect fruit tree from birds and other pests. Methyl anthranilate is one chemical that can be used. It will have to be repeated if you find that bird damage is continuing. Hinder is another chemical pest control that can be used. Simply dilute it 20:1 with water and apply it every three to 10 days. Also, make sure to reapply after a heavy rain.
