I installed the tulle onto my tree (I'll admit it was a lot harder to install than the bird netting was.
For a while I felt too guilty to prevent the birds from eating any more. But a few months later I saw something in a fabric store that made me rethink my generosity. I didn't have any more problems with birds taking cherries from that tree. Buying enough to cover one tree ended up costing less than half of what it cost for the lethal bird netting. After I applied all of these solutions, my problem went almost completely away. While at first my scarecrow scared them senseless, now I look outside and see them sitting on his shoulder. It is very fine netting with holes too small for any bird to fit its beak or head into.If you have a problem with birds, you have probably tried many solutions. I didn't want to protect my tree at the cost of the birds' lives! Sure, I'll kill off a few bugs, but birds are a little too nice for me.
I wanted to keep an eye on it every second, so that if a bird got caught I could quickly help it out. Those insolent little fiends! I'm not saying I mind birds. Fortunately, no bird ever got caught. I love having them around my yard. I have quite a few cherry trees in my backyard, and I used to struggle a lot with birds. All of these things can do a great job of reducing bird problems.

They always feel the need to go over to my own trees when there is a tree just for them that doesn't have any scary things around it. Bird netting is basically a giant net that you throw over the entire tree. I even took down my scarecrow. The holes are about one half of an inch wide. I buried the birds and immediately took down that netting. While it is easy to find, it is also extremely cheap. I decided to use it. I had to attach several large pieces together at the seams) and watched it for a day. Tulle is a much safer and cheaper alternative to bird netting, and I suggest it if you have any problems with birds.
I saw many gardening stores satin fabric marketing a type of bird netting. But you see, I've already designated one tree specifically for allowing birds to eat off of. Unfortunately, the solution only lasted a few months. I purchased enough of this to cover one whole tree. And munching on cherries from my tree
