Bird-proof netting over fruit orchards

 

The Granite Belt region of southern Queensland is famous for its fruit production: Grapes, strawberries, plums, apples, cherries and more.
The farmers have to put up with wannabee 'share farmers': Birds by day and flying foxes (the world's largest fruit bat) by night.
Many use bird netting, and there are thousands of acres under such protection.

Apple trees under netting. The trees will grow tall enough to push against the top of the net.
