Crows!

Hi everyone, this is my first post here! Here's my problem. In the past 2-3 years we have had a lot of crows move into my neighborhood. The first year they did not bother me, last year they nipped off every one of my pepper, broccoli, cabbage and some of my tomato plants within days of planting. Well, I'm getting ready to plant and would really rather not have to replant in a week or two.

What can I do to deter these nasty creatures!

hi there
My aunt uses a long stick with black cloth tied to it. She puts them up in various places in her yard.. She raises chickens and it keeps them away from the chicks as welll. apparently it looks like a dead crow to the crows and they get scarred off. its an easy cheap thing to try. I have also heard that a string of pie plates works to but not sure I would try the stick and cloth :wink: i am sure at this point you are willing to give anything a shot!!
