FCN-1: White fruit cage netting covering a fruit tree.
Fruit cage netting is the friend to fruit trees. It is a qualified guard to block pest birds, rabbits, pigeons, large butterflies and fruit flies out. Our cage netting is made of UV stabilized and high strength polyethylene. Knotless and extruded bird netting are nice choices. Extruded netting is relatively cheap and light in weight.
Fruit tree netting is available in various mesh sizes including 1/2" and 3/4". Both meshes can block most birds out. If you want to prevent butterflies, 7 mm × 7 mm will be better. Overall mesh sizes can be 25', 50', 80' and 100' widths and 50', 80' and 100' lengths. Special sizes are custom.
White is prone the most effective color for it is apparently different from the surroundings. Birds will fly away when they see such a foreign thing over the tree. However, some people prefer black or green for aesthetic reasons. So we also provide green and black bird netting.
Prune the fruit tree.
Volume of pruned tree is smaller and shorter. That will make it easy to spread the netting over the top of the tree. At the same time, cost is saved for smaller quantity netting used.
Some fruit trees are too large to cover its whole body. Then you can cut bird netting into small pieces and wrap the branches where fruits are born.
Prevent the net tearing.
Make sure the fruit cage netting is high enough to leave space for young shoots which will grow. If the net is too close to the tree, the branch will tear the net and birds will come in.
