Blackbirds a Problem again

Posted by romeethredge on November 26, 2013

Blackbirds are causing problems again. Some growers have said that blackbirds are worse in certain areas. We have large roosting areas along the Chattahoochee river here and it may cause it to be a worse problem locally. Here’s a link back to another post I’ve done with some remedies.

Here are some photos I took last week of the problem in grain sorghum. The propane exploders help. I like these because they move around and so the main blast of noise goes into different directions.
