If you have an apple tree in your yard, you well know that the birds and squirrels can devastate the growth of your apples. In order to keep them from ruining your apple tree, there are a couple of things you can do that are cheap and work well. This article will tell you how to keep squirrels and birds from eating your apple tree. When you are finished reading it, you will be able to save the apples and be canning next summer instead of picking up remains.
Gather the items for the project. With the scissors, pierce the edge of a pie pan so that when a piece of the kite twine is tied through it, it will dangle nicely. Now cut a length of twine about 2 feet long. Thread the twine through the hole in the pie pan and tie it in a knot.
Continue piercing the pie pans until you have completed all of them. Take them outside to the tree and set up the ladder against the trunk of the tree. Get as high as you can in the tree and tie at least two pie pans on branches on opposite sides, so the pie pans hang from a branch. Move down and place two more on opposite sides of the tree.
Move out towards the longer branches as you move around the tree. Continue this until all pie pans are used. Now let the leaves grow in and the birds and squirrels find another form of food.
