Bird Distractors

I wanted a way to prevent birds and squirrels from eating my tomatoes. This is the method I am trying this year.

Step 1: Supplies

You need cheap plastic Christmas ornaments and string. The only tool you need is a cutting implement.

Step 2: Assemble

Cut a length of string about 1-2 ft long. Thread it through the opening of the ornament and tie it into a large loop.

Step 3: Install

Install the distractors amongst your tomato plants.

    So far so good. I haven't lost any tomatoes to birds or squirrels.
