how do I keep away birds?

  1. 2 of my seedlings got clipped off by birds im sure because I sprinkled hair around plants and only birds could care less, how can I prevent this from happening again? any food mixes or do I have to just use plastic fencing.
  2. scarecrow
  3. plant cage if you wanted to invest a little. plans are in this section.

  4. that is def not birds its SLUGS/SNAILS for sure no doubt!
  5. Starting off in pots until they are about a month old is one way to combat slugs.
  6. not birds it was slugs i found out, birds don't eat seedlings, but they were in pots and i heard slugs do enjoy climbing.
  7. wrap copper wire or strips around the pots, slugs won´t cross it
  8. if it is slugs and your planting in pots then put some salt in water and wipe it around the rim of ur pot cause slugs cant stand salt,,make sure u dont get salt water near or in the soil,
    this should form a crusty rim of salt around ur pot
    hope this helps
  9. yah salty soiil will fuck up your grow
  10. you can always kill one and leave it there to scare the others away, but ive personally never had any problems with birds, just slugs here.
