From a reader

Scaring birds can bring people together. It seems anyone who is or was remotely interested in gardening has a theory and has tried different ways of keeping birds from their garden.

This post is to convey a story I had posted to me from a reader.

On Christmas the reader went to a friends house which was in the suburbs, kind of typical.
Out on the patio they saw a plastic snake just sitting there, and not realising before reading Scarecrow Vs that it was there to scare the birds off the fruit.

Talking to the owners of the house, they were happy with the snake keeping the birds away, saying it was working just as they wanted.

Now we didn’t rate the plastic snake as the best bird scaring device we tried here at Scarecrow Vs, but we do like to know what works for you.

Thanks for getting in touch!
