Field mice burrow under the garden, disturbing the roots. They tunnel under a ripening fruit, and up into it in search of seeds. Traps and bait are the most common methods of ridding your garden. If this doesn't work, get a cat!
Birds eat insect pests in the garden, but they also eat entire fruits and vegetables or pick at them, making them inedible. Metal or aluminum wind chimes work well in repelling unwanted birds. They not only make noise but also reflect light, scaring the birds away.
