You missed the point of the thread. I want to eat the fruit myself and not share with the birds.

I think you're talking to a robot there, tater.

where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

You need more trees to have more than the birds will eat. Most of the villains are mockingbirds and there will be only a few in the area.

Everything needs to eat to survive - fact is if you were the bird you would do it as well. Around here we just accept the losses and move on because in the end it is not worth the hassle and rise in BP.

Best to all.

Install a netting on top of the tree, I use a netting on my cherry trees, is an effective way to keep birds away from your cherries.

I keep bird feeders in my trees year round and do not spray for any insects appears that the birds keep the insects at bay.
