But not every bird guards fear. Many are used as an aerodrome, where you can more thoroughly examine the contents of the owner's garden. It turns out that the scarecrow, "work", it must be created, taking into account all the factors, which are afraid of birds. Consider these factors more and create on their basis of a couple of stuffed animals perfect.
What are afraid of birds: select the elements for the future of stuffed
Any bird will not attack the wood, if there iseven the slightest threat to life. And this threat is not only a man. Here is the list of the most repellent subjects and objects to which the birds can not get used to:
- Everything that moves and glitters.
- All that produces sharp sounds and noise.
- Everything is colored in blue.
Let us examine each item.
Shine and movement: the fear of bird calls fickle
By themselves, shiny objects not for the birdsterrible. Let us recall the forty that dragged into the slot all that attracted shine. But if the shiny object begins to move, spin, scattering the glare from the sun, it becomes a bird frightening because incomprehensible. Birds do not know how this "horror story" will behave in the next minute, and therefore prefer not to approach closely. So the old CD and DVD drives can do a good service if they add to a wardrobe stuffed.
In addition to shiny objects, can be included in the attributes of Horticultural guard everything starts to move at the slightest breath of wind: film, magnetic tape cassettes of old, balloons, etc.
Blue: scary unusual
Of the entire color palette of the starlings and sparrowssomehow afraid of saturated blue (also called royal blue). Such tone in nature is quite rare, and the birds just do not have time to get used to it. So the scarecrow clothes need to use this shade.
The crackle and noise: signals a hazard
At the cottages there is no movement in the city, andbird szhivaetsya with silence. If, however, the section starts something pop or noise, it stands out from the normal rhythm of the life of the birds and scare them. However, if the sound will be issued continuously, with some regularity, then this danger birds will soon become accustomed. Therefore it is necessary to alternate different types of rattles and "shumelok", changing their places every week.
Birds of prey or their dummies: a direct threat to life
Ornithologists who studybehavioral reactions of different bird species, came to the conclusion that there is no better means to scare away birds "trifles" as their own prey "cousins." No wonder the city to eliminate colonies of pigeons shitting on the monuments of historical significance, use of trained falcons, eagles and golden eagles. Couple predator flights - and the birds ever forget the way in this area. However, summer residents rarely get this bird of prey. A simpler way - to hang on the high pole or to find it stuffed a dead crow. Suspended dead "Kindred" - the best proof that there is unsafe.
So, four scare factor known to us. It remains only to introduce them in the future scarecrow to guard that was present for speyuschih berries.
Workshop: how to make a stuffed kitchen garden perfect
Option 1: Jolly DJ from old clothes
To create a vegetable garden a DJ you need to stock up on the following materials:
- High wooden pole (about 2 m) and 2 beams (up to a meter).
- Unwanted clothes, which will have a blue color (pants, shirt, cap).
- Last year's pumpkin to create the head (if there is a pumpkin, use a cloth bag, stuffed it with straw).
- The filler, which will fill his clothes (Nitron, rags, straw, etc.).
- Music CDs.
- Radio in working condition.
When all you need is collected, we begin to work. The sequence of actions is as follows:
- We bring down the skeleton on which would sit a DJ. To this end, to a pole nailed the crossbar, departing 30-40 cm from the top. In her will dress shirt.
- Master head. If last year found a pumpkin or squash, then cut a small hole in the center and select it from the inside through the entire contents of a tablespoon. Then carefully cut out the face with a knife. If the pumpkin is not, use a light linen bag. It fills with hay, nitrone etc., And the top marker draw eyes, nose and mouth.
- Skewer head on a pole. Pumpkin will be held due to the fact that the top is not a through hole. Bag it is necessary to pull the edge of the thread and tied to a pole.
- Decorate the head. To make the head DJ natural look, we put on top of an old wig or using pins fix the hair of the nitrone, and then stretch the cap or hat.
- Create the upper body. On crossbar stretch the shirt completely zashpilivaem and fills the inside filler. Fill the first sleeve, and to Nitron not got, sew cuffs large stitches. Then fill the rest of the shirt, and the bottom edge of the hook the pins, so that nothing is spilled.
- We put on the pants scared. The second bar cut so that it fits to insert in the waist of trousers. Tamp pants to his knees filling, and do not fall out, sew the thread line knees. The lower part of the leg, leave blank. Let it fluttering in the wind. Insert the bar in the lower back and nail it to a pole. So you fix the "foot" stuffed to the body.
- Create a musical decor. By sleeved shirt tie several pieces of music CDs on strings of different heights. Let them shine and move in the wind. An old radio, which is still in working condition, wrap film (in case of bad weather), cut out a hole around the speaker and hang the DJ's neck. And not to fall from the wind, wrap around jacket 1-2 range tape. Pull the radio from an extension cord to the nearest outlet and adjust to the most clear-reaching wave in your area. At night extender have to clean up.
- Install the DJ near speyuschih berries and turn on the radio.
Tip! Do not leave the radio is switched on all day, or birds get used to the noise. Use it for a couple of hours at different times of the day.
Option 2: The young lady of the garbage bags
Very easy to make your kitchen garden scarecrowhands of the garbage bags. They come in different colors, but it is better to do the main blue. As the guardian of the male we have already created, make him a girlfriend. Framework for the creation of the young ladies will be a six-foot pole. Only need one crossbar instead of two.
In addition, you will need:
- colored garbage bags;
- thicker package for the head;
- Scotch average thickness;
- magnetic tape;
- tin cans of beverage;
The principle of creating stuffed similar to the firstmaster class, ie, every detail is strung on a pole gradually. But since the basis is polyethylene, the filler can not be used as a hard straw. It breaks through the thin film and spoil the appearance of the bogey. So fill your head will only nitrone.
Features of creation of garden ladies:
- To use head light monochrome packagecolored markers to draw a face was clearly visible. Please put it on the top of the pole, and then tamp the filler, tie at the base and razrisuy.
- From magnetic film cut into long strips andglue them either directly to the head stuffed or first on the blank paper, and then - on the top of the doll. Magnetic tape will serve the young lady hair and fluttering freely, will induce fear in birds. Top hide bald spots using headscarves or bow of the garbage bag glued with tape.
- To create blouses will need 3 packs: 2 - in the hands, 1 - on the chest. Penetrates a small hole at the bottom of the package and through the stretch hose to the junction with the sixth. Fix the adhesive tape on the shoulder and the elbow, leaving a loose flap of the carpal sleeves. The central part (chest-back) is done from a single package, handing it through the bottom of the pole carved hole. Fix the tape only at the top, and the bottom is left free.
- The skirt is created from several inflated airpackages held together with tape. The more elaborate you make it, the more effective will be frightened. All packages are wrapped around a pole and fixed to it with tape.
- By one hand ladies tie inflated balloon, the second put in some empty cans, which will create noise.
Once this "sweet couple" will appear on theyour garden - bird cherries announced a boycott. And if you plan to put a scarecrow on different edges of the site, a couple of times per season rearrange them to strengthen deterrent effect.
