How to Keep Herons from Attacking Fish, Koi or Goldfish

Published on May 21, 2020

While all of us love critters and wildlife, in general, we have to keep pond predators like herons away from our beloved koi and goldfish. This video from Foisy Aquatics provides 10 methods to keep herons away from your pond, and this issue can be a great reason to connect with customers and discuss this issue. Or, any other needs from your customers. Keep on building relationships! 

The video provides a range of suggestions to prevent herons from enjoying an easy meal. My favorite is the suggestion of a clever pond design that includes steep edges and minimal pond ledges. Other ideas include shrubs and bushes near pond edges, fishing lines, floating plants and even fake heron to name a few. Watch the full video for other great suggestions.
