How To Keep Birds From Eating Grass Seed

I planted some seed out here a couple of weeks ago and all the birds ate it so all my hard work was gone. So I thought of this excellent idea to basically scare the birds off. If you look put some topsoil on today and if I leave it, the birds will annihilate it within the next day or two. Therefore, I’m will show you exactly what to do to keep the birds off your lawn.

Things You Will Need

It’s very simple, this is all you need:

  • Simple coat hanger
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Nose pliers.

You can make three of these devices out of one hanger and the last and most encrypt, the most crucial item that I failed to mention, which I’m sure you have some packed away right now and you’ll start sitting in the stories in the time since October is tinsel.

Step 1: Making A Loop

What you do is you straighten the hanger out and you cut it. It’s basically three equal pieces. What you do is you just take two needle nose pliers, you just bend a little loop.

You kind of have to make it a little bit of a tight loop and the reason is  because we take a tensile, you want to cut a piece that’s shorter than the piece of hammer so it doesn’t drag on the ground.

Step 2: Adjustting The Loop

That’s enough because the birds do not like the reflectiveness of this tinsel. You take the spine of the tinsel, stick it through the loop that you just made and if you pull it through and it’s not tight enough, you just squeeze the loop a little bit with your pliers and this is all. You can make as many or as few as you need.

Step 3: Finishing

If you put one like every five or six feet it’ll be plenty to keep the birds away so we’ll go back outside. I made about seven or eight of these devices and super easy it took me no more than ten minutes and I’m done. I’ve already placed some in the ground so take a look over here.

We have a very late breeze today. It’s only about 4 or 5 miles per hour but it’s just enough to catch some Sun way reflectiveness of these tinsel posts. Here is a video about protecting seeds and increasing germination rates using shade-cloth:

Conclusion

I could take this up in about 2 or 3 days right after the seed germinates. It’s a done deal and the birds won’t be that ready to see as well to germinate, so there you go about 10 minutes it’s gonna save all of your hard work and your lawn will be looking perfect.
