Protect your fruit and vegetables from common garden pests such as flies, butterflies and birds. The fine mesh ensures protection against even the smaller pests whilst allowing a high amount of light penetration to ensure good growth.
Shipped in recyclable packaging. InsectoNet comes as a single piece of fabric 2.1 by 5.0 metres in size that can easily be cut to size. The high quality fabric means it won't fray on the edges when cut. It lasts at least 3 years.
Use from planting until harvest, approximately April - September.
Do not use during flowering period for plants which require pollination.
Flies, butterflies and moths are often attracted to fruit and vegetable plants to lay eggs which hatch into devastating pests. If adults are kept away from plants, they cannot lay eggs. Using a fine net prevents egg laying and therefore the need to control feeding pests.
The 0.85mm fine mesh provides excellent protection against many pests including;
Cabbage Root Fly
Carrot Root Fly
Cabbage White Butterfly
Many common aphid species
