Answer: 
I really doubt this would be strong enough - I wonder if the "deer netting" would be strong enough?? Best bet is to maybe ask your local school PE teacher - used to be one....we had catalogues with all kinds of things like this and they also may have a suggestion.

Nah -- this is too thin and would likely tear. But it would do a great job if you are throwing pidgeons.

I used to use this on my blueberries. When they started to turn blue and the birds would start eating I would put up my nets. Worked pretty well. Your southern birds are far more aggressive they did not wait for the fruit to ripen. Just stripped the plants clean of the green fruit. This year, I will be using nets once again.
As to how to put up the nets. Realize the holes in the net are 3/4 of an inch. Your tree will continue to grow so you will have new growth poking through the net. Also if you do not secure the bottom of the net the birds and squirrels will quickly learn to get into your fruit from the bottom,
PVC pipe is fairly inexpensive. Their are all kinds of fittings so it will be easy to make a box. Then you can slide the netting over the frame. You can bury larger pipe into the ground.and simply slide the uprights into the partially exposed larger pipe. I would not glue the pipe together. It will or should simply stay together by friction. You can then use clothes pins to hold the bottom of the net to the ground.
My method is far more work then simply throwing the net over the plant. But you will not tear the net due to the tree growing through it. and you will not knock off as much fruit each time you need to crawl under the net to pick the fruit.

Answer: 
If your fig tree is about ten feet tall as is mine, you can use a long pole to lift the edges of the netting over the top and go around the other side and pull it down and tie it off to lower branches. Use old compact discs hung on branches to shine in the sun. Birds do not like these and it will add a layer of protection. As well, to protect from wasps, bees, and other insects, hang two liter bottles Read More
If your fig tree is about ten feet tall as is mine, you can use a long pole to lift the edges of the netting over the top and go around the other side and pull it down and tie it off to lower branches. Use old compact discs hung on branches to shine in the sun. Birds do not like these and it will add a layer of protection. As well, to protect from wasps, bees, and other insects, hang two liter bottles with a little soda in the bottom under branches. The insects are attracted to the sweet of the syrup and cannot fly back up and out of the bottles. I have trouble with crows and wasps eating my figs mostly. I have a bumper crop this year and leaving me a few would be nice. Preventative measures will go a long way. Read Less

Answer: 
The product is a mesh type net that wraps around the tree. I used it on a smaller peach tree and secured it in place with small wire ties. It saved the ripening peaches from the birds, but the squirrels figured out how to penetrate my overlaps and defeated it. It did work for the birds..;~)

This is simply a sheet of plastic netting. Wrap what you want to wrap and cut off the excess. I used small wire ties to secure the net seams. It stays where you put it that way.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect bird protection on berry bushes This works perfect for my blueberry bushes to keep the birds from eating my berries. Next year I plan to somehow stake it so I can more easily mow between the rows. My bushes are not very tall - maybe 4-5 feet so this netting is easy to flip up and get to the berries. Seems pretty durable and I'm expecting to be able to reuse this same netting next year too. Also you can't hardly even even see this netting once it is up so I don't have to look at some ugly netting blocking my pretty view. In fact my adult son came over and said, "Oh I thought you put up netting" - I said, "I did you just can't see it unless you are almost right on top of it!" I'm thrilled!! July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wished I had bought this sooner Bought this netting to protect a few cucumber and tomato plants growing in our back yard from the birds. Netting was bigger than we needed but we cut it with scissors to the size we needed. Netting is light weight so we used bricks to weigh it down around the base of our plants. I am very pleased to say that this is the first year that none of our tomatoes or cucumbers have been eaten by the birds! Net is light enough to move when picking the tomatoes/cucumbers and is easy to water through. We are happy with our purchase. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A total waste A complete disaster. This mesh is so fine that it's almost invisible. If there is the slightest breeze, the stuff tangles hopelessly. Once tangled, you're all done. Almost impossible to untangle. I needed to cut it down to a more manageable size and that was just a mess. The only way this could be used is to unroll it as-is on to your tree or shrub or whatever. At the end of the season, just throw it away - you'll never be able to roll it up and store it for next year. And forget about adjusting the stuff once it's installed. I wasted my money. Should have bought heavier stuff that is more cooperative to handle. June 7, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bird netting The netting is very light weight, thinner than what i've used in the past. I think it would be great for keeping birds out of a garden. I'm using it to separate peacocks. so I'll see how it lasts. The price and size were just what I was looking for. May 31, 2016
