Protect By Crop

Tree Fruit


Crows, starlings, magpies, house finches, jays and grackles are just a few of the nuisance birds that affect the profitability of your crop. Damage comes in many forms - stealing blossoms such that the fruit never fully develops; pecking the fruit; stealing the fruit or simply knocking it to the ground. According to the scientific journal Crop Protection, birds can cause 30% or more crop loss to a cherry harvest.

In addition, new FSMA Produce Safety Rules mandate that you take all measures reasonably necessary to identify and not harvest produce that is likely to be contaminated by birds and other wildlife. Large areas of your field may have to remain unharvested if bird intrusion is not prevented.

Bird Gard has been partnering with tree fruit farmers to eliminate bird damage for more than 30 years. Our products are used by some of the largest tree fruit growers in North America and around the world.

Electronic Bird Control

Bird Gard harnesses the power of the natural survival instincts in birds to effectively repel them. Digital recordings of species-specific distress and alarm calls, along with the sounds made by their natural predators, are broadcast through high fidelity, weather-resistant speakers. These trigger a primal fear-and-flee response. Pest birds soon relocate to where they can feed without feeling threatened.

Birds stay out… for good!

Our bird repellers continually randomize the order in which the sounds play, the time interval between the calls and the relative pitch of each bird sound. This creates the impression that there are many birds in distress in the protected area. This multi-layered randomization prevents birds from becoming habituated to the sounds. Bird Gard can protect your crop all the way through harvest, year after year.

Customized Proposals

To ensure that you get the most effective and efficient bird control, our team will create a free customized proposal using satellite imagery, showing the precise location to install your equipment. This creates an incredibly helpful blueprint, displaying the most optimal way to repel unwanted birds from your orchards.
