I'm thinking this trick might work for blueberries and other small fruits, with appropriate colored beads. I, too, wold like to try this for my gooseberries and cherries, but have not been able to find suitable beads.

I hoped to try the plastic cherry bead trick but can't find suitable beads. Is there a mail order source available, along with the appropriate part number, etc., so I can get the best size and color?
We have nets on 2 of our cherries, laid over a frame of PVC pipe, and the nets are getting weathered and tear easily, and I can't find a source of adequate sized netting that I can afford, so the beads sounds good.
I did also make a dozen or so wren houses hoping that wrens would drive away the cherry eating birds (primarily robins, the Wisconsin official state bird, and a disgusting pest, in my opinion). Don't have many wrens around, though, and not sure why.

I keep red plastic "cherry" beads on my Evans Cherries all year around
and the birds don't eat the cherries when they ripen. Of course, having
other fruits to munch or probable helps too.
