Don't be Afraid of Birds


Less Pests, More Profits, Better Planet

Farmers don’t have to be afraid of attracting birds. Supporting them with nest boxes, hedgerows and trees on the farm, and enhancing habitat restoration at the landscape scale will promote avian pest control and minimize crop damage and food safety risk.

We all know some birds cause problems on some farms and others don’t. Exciting research is pointing out that how we manage our farms and the surrounding landscape makes the difference. Learn more about co-existing with birds in our new video resource.
