Good product

By JD

from Ridgefield, NJ

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

I used this cage for protecting my tomatoes from squirrels. It worked well for three months. Recently, when the fruit ripened, they chewed through the netting in two places. I repaired them and put a piece of metal fencing on it, but I'm on my guard. I would have giving this 5 stars if they didn't do this.

I like this one!

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

This cage was easy (for 2 people) to put together, seems pretty sturdy, and is tall enough to stand up in. The zippers are heavy duty.
Even with only a 2 pins to hold it down it doesn't move and the beasties don't get in.
We shall see how easy it is to take down for the winter - I'd think it isn't sturdy enough to leave up all year in the North East.

Great for covering my blueberry bushes

By Laura

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

Would have given this a five star rating, however two of the zippers have already failed and this is just the first season for using the cages. That said this is the first year we have had buckets of blueberries! (The birds always beat us to them.

The 4 by 8 crop caged protected my garden from the deers and kept many harmful pests out of my raised garden. I liked it so much I have purchased a second one for next season.

Bad customer service information

By backyard gardener

from NJ

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

I contacted Gerdener's customer service to verify if the cage would go over a raised bed. She asked if it's one of their raised beds, I said yes, it's a 4' x 8' as well but I wanted to make sure it would surround the bed. She reassured me that yes, this 4' x 8' cage would go snugly around the veggie bed. It does NOT. I had to remove the bottom bars as they were directly over the perimeter of the raised bed and I had no way of securing the bottom. I could bend the frame so that the vertical bars go into the corners of the bed, and secure the netting with anchors around. One of the bars bent quite a bit because of the struggle so I can't return in. Wish the customer service reps knew their product better and gave sound advice not a guess. If you're trying to fit it around a 4' x 8' bed just know that it will not fit.

Birds go under the netting

By Rachel

from Northampton Massachusetts

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

The cage was easy to set up and looked as expected, but after an hour of it being set up over our blueberry bushes a bird was inside the cage, trapped. We unzipped the sides to let it out, and used twine to secure the netting to the base in more places, but there is still enough space for birds to squeeze in. They continue to do so. Does NOT protect against birds. If the netting went all the way down to the ground this product might work as advertised but with a giant gap at the bottom it's pretty useless.

Doesn't stop squirrels, unfortunately.

By Clark

from Falls Church, VA

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

I have an ongoing battle with squirrels. I had built an un-sightly 'tomato cage' that covered my whole bed, but it started falling apart after several years so I saw and bought this. It's easy to set up and goes up quickly. It DOES help with keeping birds off your crops, which is helpful, but be careful that the gaps at the base of the netting are closed, or they will get in, too, then won't be able to get out - you have to go unzip it and shoo them out. I sat at my back window and saw a squirrel slip through the base net gap, grab my most beautiful Brandywine and start chowing down. Grrr. I think next year I will try to cover the base with a raised garden frame.

protection for cherries

By Gwyneth

from Sebastopol, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':

I bought this to keep my cherries from being eaten by birds, and it is great for that. Be sure to stake it to the ground though, or it will blow over. Set-up is really a 2-person operation--- too awkward for one. But it definitely does the job I bought it for.
