Insect Net for Greenhouse

The Insect Net for Greenhouse is composed of UV-treated monofilament raw material, which minimizes wind speed and heat buildup in the greenhouse. It also keeps pests out of the greenhouse. Nothing is more disheartening than caring for your greenhouse crops for months just to discover that you won’t be able to enjoy the harvest because an insect infestation arrived before. Pest management is a constant fight for any gardener, but especially for those who grow their plants organically. We create and test the insect Net for greenhouse to provide the best insect netting available for greenhouses. Our nets aim at isolating crops or generating micro-parcels, hindering plant pollination via anemophily (wind) and entomophily (insects). Depending on the mesh size, they offer a physical barrier against insects like flies, aphids, thrips, and whiteflies.

Insect netting is a protective barrier mesh comprising woven polyethylene. Its purpose is to protect pests from valuable market crops, trees, and flowers. Pests can cause direct damage to crop leaves and fruits, as well as illness and decreased yields.

Insect netting is intended to keep pests out while allowing enough ventilation and water penetration through tiny mesh apertures. The netting protects against insects, animals, rodents, and damage from extreme weather such as hail.

The mesh size varies across companies and is often selected based on the bug you want to exclude or the pests that are popular in your region. The number of holes in one linear inch of netting is used to calculate mesh. Row crops are commonly grown in sizes ranging from 40 to 50 mesh.

Using an Insect net for the greenhouse to keep beneficial insects inside the greenhouse

Use insect netting to keep beneficial insects inside your greenhouse or hoop house. Some bug infestations, such as spider mites and aphids, can be managed by deliberately introducing insect predators into your growing area. Ladybug and green lacewing larvae are both effective in controlling soft-bodied insect infestations. However, if the environment is not appropriate, the adult forms of both of these wonderful and helpful predators will fly away.

Lining any airflow in your hoop house with bug netting helps keep the adults feasting and laying eggs where you need them. In order to reproduce, many adult types of helpful insects require pollen and nectar. You must offer this fodder if you want them to develop extra generations within your greenhouse.
