The Blue Heron just got my biggest and best Koi that was claimed by my five year old grandson. I didn't mind at first,(he's eaten a lot of goldfish),but this is the second Koi. But my most beautiful fish!. Guess he decided he wanted the best on the menu. What to do? I have three Koi left. :) Arum

How big is your pond? You can try either to cover it or put nylon line on posts around the pond so the heron can't walk into the pond.

RE: Bird Murder.

A Scarecrow water cannon may be your best bet or a pair of fake herons. One heron doesn't work but a pair makes it think it is a mated nesting pair and will stay away.

The Scarecrow is available at Walmart for $49.95.
