What’s Eating Our Peaches?

Anonymous added on May 15, 2014 | Answered

We live about 50 miles south of Houston, Texas and have a five-year-old peach tree that grows a lot of peaches each year. Our problem is, something is eating the peaches that are still on the tree. We are trying to figure out what kind of varmint or animal could be doing this. We have a 4'8" piece of solid medal around the tree to eliminate raccoon or squirrels. The tree stands alone so nothing can jump from another tree or pole to get to the tree. We thought maybe deer could be standing on their hind legs to reach some of the lower peaches, but some of the peaches are so high that they couldn't possibly reach. Are there any birds that eat peaches on the tree?

    Yes, it is likely birds. They are notorious for this. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/fegen/protect-fruit-tree-birds.htm
