Fruit tree covers

Do you have problems with birds eating your cherries?  Here’s an eco-friendly solution: netting for fruit trees, developed by Marilyn Roberts in Kaslo.

This net, called the Kootenay Cover, does more than keep out birds, it also prevents the flies from getting in and laying eggs that turn into worms. And while it protects the fruit, it still lets in the sunlight and water so the tree and fruit grows. The best part of all is that the fruit grows without pesticides!
