• Less Waste
The amount of waste caused by birds will drop significantly. That means more produce for you and less for birds.

There are many repellents on the market loaded with chemicals. Bird netting serves as a physical barrier that is environmentally friendly and minus any chemicals for protecting your fruit trees.

• Adaptable Netting
Bird netting can be used for many plants not just fruit trees. It can be used on grapevines, vegetable rows, and berry bushes with excellent results.

Different Kinds Of Bird Netting

You will find a variety of bird netting customized for different needs and environments. Here's a list of different netting to look into:

Extruded Polypropylene Netting: This is a lightweight inexpensive netting that is good for temporary uses and smaller trees.

Knitted Polyethylene Netting: This is a more durable netting than extruded netting. It can last several seasons and is a better choice for larger installments.

Heavy-Duty Netting: This is a much stronger material. Heavy-duty netting is an excellent choice for long-term operations and areas with large populations of birds.

Fruit Cage Netting: It requires building a full cage around fruit trees for utmost protection. While there is more labor involved and is more expensive, it's considered the best deterrent when dealing with birds.

Installing Bird Netting

Bird netting must be installed the right way in order to be effective. Step-by-step instructions to get you going:

• Get The Right Size Netting
Make sure you get the right size netting to cover the entire tree or the area that will need protection. Allow for extra material on the edges to secure the netting in place.

• Secure The Netting
Use stakes or a frame to drape the material over it. Do Not let the material touch the fruit. Birds can damage the fruit through the net if it's too close to the fruit.

• Anchor The Netting
Anchor down the netting using ground stakes or weights. Also, you can tie them to a structure that is close by. This technique will prevent birds from getting underneath.

• Inspect Regularly
You have to check the netting from time to time for holes or tears and either replace or repair them quickly.

• Clean
Remove debris and leaves accumulating on the netting so it won't sag.

• Storage
When it's no longer needed, store it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight or it will degrade.
