Seeking bird net advice
So I was getting some blueberries for the first time this year. There were a couple of birds getting into the bushes but they weren't taking much and it didn't bother me a great deal. But I just went out there today and the bushes were stripped of nearly every berry even reasonably close to being ripe.
Nets seem the obvious solution, with the two options to be to drape over the bushes or enclose the bushes.
I've read countless horror stories from people who draped the bushes -- the netting gets stuck, it's difficult to get off at the end of the season, it damages new growth, critters get stuck in it.
So I looked at enclosing. I have an advantage here in that I already have the area enclosed on four sides with netting hanging from a metal superstructure. So it would just require closing in the top while the berries are fruiting.
My concerns are mainly that birds will still find some way to get in and then will get stuck, or that they will land on the netting not realizing it is there and get stuck. (Imagine a net 15' x 35' sitting horizontally 7' off the ground.)
Before I shell out $30+ for a net... was hoping for some ideas from you more experienced folks. Thanks. :)
