How to Protect Vineyards from Birds & Orchards from Deer

As the owner of an orchard or a vineyard, your top concern is how to prevent losing your harvest. Loss is all too common when your orchard or vineyard is open to hungry deer and birds. These creatures can kill young fruit trees, spread disease from plant to plant, and compromise the quality of your final product.

Learn how to protect your vineyard from birds and how to keep deer from eating your apple trees. Start protecting your property, your livelihood. Use Nite Guard Repellent Tape in the daytime and Nite Guard Solar lights for dusk to dawn protection. 

Nite Guard Repellent Tape

Created for daytime use, Nite Guard Repellent Tape effectively keeps deer and birds away from fruit trees and vines by triggering the “fight or flight” instinct. Bright flashes of light, unpredictable motion, and loud crackling noises trigger this instinct. These 3 elements work together to deter deer and birds by scaring them away, yet this is a humane solution. While some may try to shoot the creatures, those of us who don’t wish to take such drastic measures are far better off using scare tactics such as Nite Guard Repellent Tape. We recommend that you place our extra wide, iridescent tape at around 6-7 ft off the ground to deter birds and at eye level to deter ground animals like deer. Every so often, rearrange the strips’ placement so the animals do not grow accustomed to them. 

Nite Guard Solar Lights

From dusk to dawn, Nite Guard Solar lights repel hungry deer and birds. The flashing red light of each Nite Guard Solar device mimics the blinking eyes of a nocturnal predator, like a coyote, fox, or raccoon. Like our flash tape, our lights also trigger the “fight or flight” response, resulting in the deer or birds fleeing the area. Due to fear of a larger predator lurking around your fruit trees or vines, the animals you wish to deter will stay away for their own safety. Relying on solar power and activating at dusk, Nite Guard Solar lights do not need batteries and can last for a long time before needing replacements. We recommend that you install them at various levels off the ground in order to deter land and sky dwelling creatures from your crop.
