Crows tear open garbage bags and scatter the contents as they search for kitchen garbage and discarded food. The period from March to July is the breeding season for crows, so try and observe the following points to prevent crows from making a meal and a mess of your garbage bags.

■ Reduce your kitchen garbage

Not having any leftovers in your garbage helps.

■ Wrap any kitchen garbage in newspaper or paper bags

Wrap your kitchen garbage so that it is not visible to crows.

■ Cover your garbage bags with a bird net

Remember that leaving garbage bags sticking out from under the net, or not using a weight to keep the net down will render the net useless. Be sure to use the net correctly.

■ Put out your garbage on the designated collection day

Putting your garbage bags out the night before makes it easier for crows to get at them.
