Check for fruits, and i know, right there and then...i got "rivals". Birds or bats. They are my rival in picking and eating this custard apple. And they get their share when i am asleep. I am willing to share the fruits, but i want then to eat the whole.fruit before having another fruit. Cause i am not going to.eat their "leftover", like NAH AH! Then the leftover fruit will.just fall..splak! Now, i am thinking of a note on each fruit that will remind.them to.eat everything before getting another one. Silly me, as if they know how to read eh. Oh well, just let them and me, keep an eye to every fruit that is ripe and not a leftover. Do birds eat the.fruits around you too?

Sometimes people here put a bag or net around a fruit when it just needs a few more days to ripen. Would this work for you or are the fruit too high in the tree?

@Lucky15 It's a shame they can't eat a whole one rather than taking a bit out of each.

You can surround the portion of the tree bearing fruit with nylon nets, the birds wont attack them

Well, God created fruit trees not only for us to eat the fruits but also for the birds to eat them. Fruits are the birds and other animals' foods. So don't be greedy and share your fruits like this atis to the birds.

@Lucky15 really? Well, our birds here are more frugal than yours because they don't waste their fruits. Hahaha, you should tell them not to waste it and makes sure they will follow you. .

Why don't you wrap each "atis" just like the mango growers do with their fruit?

I don't have any fruit trees, but my friend has a lovely plum tree. It's a battle to get some for herself as it's not only birds that eat the plums, but wasps too. As you say, it wouldn't be so bad if they finished the whole fruit, but they make holes in lots of them.

When I was growing up, I lived in an area with a lot of orchards. All fruit harvesting season you would hear what we called the cherry bangers. They make a sound like a gunshot at set intervals to scare the birds away from the crop.

Yes, the birds will really eat fruits and even bananas, they are also our rivals in eating them especially when you can't see that the fruit is already ripe, Nah, you only have leftover from them.
