Birds pose a significant threat to vineyards, farms, orchards with species like starlings, silver eyes, fruit bats leatherheads, cockatoos and blackbirds being some of the few known to cause substantial damage to grape crops. These avian pests feed on ripening fruit, resulting in yield losses, compromised quality, and increased operational costs for vineyard owners. Traditional bird deterrent methods like nets often prove ineffective in the long run being cumbersome to store, frequent damage to netting and birds often force dive into nets making holes to eat fruit, rendering these measures obsolete. Last but not the least birds are smart and can get easily habituated to traditional dispersal methods. Hence the latest in anti-habituation for combating birds in wineries and orchards.
