I can only guess that you would need to screen the tops of the pots much like you screen blueberries so the birds don't get to all the fruits. I am also guessing that you are using the rice hills as a top dressing on the pots. I cannot figure why the birds would do this and it is not addressed in the information on the internet from the suppliers or other users. You might contact other nursery owners to see how they have addressed the problem if they have experienced it. You might also contact your local Extension Agent to see if he/she has any suggestions.
Thanks Lots of area to cover and always pulling plants. Will check with Willoway sometime
