Is There A Product That Stops Birds From Eating Corn?
Question: My dad and I have planted a small crop of corn again this year and we have had trouble with birds (crows, quail and blackbirds) pulling the corn up and eating the kennel. The corn is in the V-2/V-3 stage. I saw something about a product that would detour birds, but I can’t remember what that product is. Do you know what that product is?
Answer: The product is called Avipel, and it does deter certain bird species from eating corn. To locate the product, you can call the Avipel help line at 1-800-468-6324. This product has a Section 24C in some states, so you’ll need to call the company to determine whether it’s available for use in your state.
