Figs & Birds
My fig trees (a Kadota & a Brown Turkey) have many fruits starting. I've been watering deeply & hope to have an edible crop this year (juicy, not dry).
The initial crop (breba?) of Kadota basically went to the starlings. I've placed netting over some branches of the Brown Turkey, but the trees are just too tall and broad to cover all branches.
Does anyone have practical suggestions to discourage the birds from eating the ripe fruit outside the nets?
My thanks for any help.
