Reducing bird damage to lowbush blueberries with a carbamate repellent

, : Reducing bird damage to lowbush blueberries with a carbamate repellent. Acta Horticulturae (61): 201-204

In an area where bird damage, especially by Turdus migratorius, was heavy, spraying with methiocarb (Mesurol 75% wettable powder at 2.24 kg a.i./ha in 562 l water) on 30 July when half the berries were ripe and again on 7 August when 80% were ripe, effectively repelled birds.
