What types of bird netting are there?

Bird netting serves the singular purpose of preventing birds from landing and nesting. There are some specific netting characteristics of the netting that change based on your needs. however. Most netting comes in matte black colouring, in custom sizes based on how much you need. More personalized choices when it comes to netting include:

  • Different types of mesh – There are several different kinds of bird netting mesh. Each type is designed to prevent different sizes and species of birds. The smaller, fine mesh works for pigeon or bat problems. Heavy-duty, thicker mesh nets are designed for larger, more aggressive birds.
  • Throw nets vs. hanging nets – Another choice you’ll have to make with your bird netting is the way the netting is installed. If you’re getting bird netting for agriculture or a vineyard, you’ll want nets that can be thrown or draped. If you’re interested in protecting an outdoor facade, you’ll need lightweight nets that can be hung with cords, zippers, and connectors.
Can bird netting be used for my industry?

Bird netting can benefit just about any industry, including yours. Industry-specific applications include:

  • Spectator protection at sporting events – If you own or maintain a stadium or arena, bird netting is a great solution. It can protect spectators from more than just birds, too. Professional stadiums frequently use mesh netting to keep spectators safe from foul balls, pucks, and other flying hazards.
  • Protecting the grapes in your vineyard – If you work in wine, you’re probably familiar with pest birds picking your grapes. That’s why there are lightweight, small knit mesh bird nets for draping over grapes and preventing scavenging birds.

feral animal control

Feral predators like cats and foxes have a devastating impact on native wildlife including bird species and their impact is greatest where over-grazing or fire has left little vegetation in which native species can hide.

  • Feral cat populations fluctuate between two and six million and consume between 100 million and 1.5 billion birds each year.
  • Feral pigs damage fragile wetlands with their hard hooves and attack young lambs at birth.
  • Wild dogs, including feral domestic dogs and hybrids between the native dingo. They are widely distributed throughout Australia. Predation and harassment of stock by wild dogs causes millions of dollars’ worth of losses to Australian sheep, cattle and goat producers each year. There are increasing accounts of deer hunters, campers and bushwalkers getting bailed up by dogs and now no animal seems to be safe from attacks.
  • Deer can cause major damage to fences moving from public lands to privately owned rural properties with financial repercussions to land owners.
  • Feral pigs are environmental and agricultural pests. They cause damage to the environment through wallowing, rooting for food and selective feeding. They destroy habitat for native plants and animals and spread environmental weeds. Feral pigs destroy crops and pasture and they could spread exotic diseases should there be an outbreak
