Overview
Overview

Insect netting mesh for protecting fruit and vegetables against insect pests. Covering fruit and vegetables with Veggiemesh® insect netting will protect your crops from a range of insect pests, birds, rabbits and the weather.

Veggiemesh® will keep out a wide range of garden pests including cabbage root fly, carrot fly, cabbage white butterfly, pea moth, leek moth, cutworm, onion fly, leaf miners and many species of aphids.

If you have flea beetle or whitefly you may need to use Ultrafine Insect Netting as the holes are smaller.

Vegetables may be covered all the year round, from planting right up until harvest. If you are growing fruit, just lift the netting during flowering if the crop depends on pollination by bees.

Veggiemesh® is light enough so it can be laid directly over your crops but also works perfectly over any garden hoops, beds or fruit or vegetable cages.  One thing to note, if you are laying the mesh directly over the crop, is to allow enough slack for the growth. Once the netting has been draped over, just bury the edges or use staking ensuring there are no gaps.

Mesh size:1.35mm. Light passage = 90% and air passage = 95%. The weight is approx. 55gms/sq.m. Yarn Thickness is 0.24mm.

How to use:

Cover plants or seeds immediately after planting or sowing (ensure plants are free from insect pests) and leave covered until harvest. Always allow enough slack for the plants to grow, the edges can be buried or secured with pegs ensuring there are no gaps.

Watering/Feeding: Just water and feed through the netting.

Cutting: Veggiemesh can be cut with scissors.

Care: Veggiemesh can be washed on a "wool" cycle in the washing machine. It should last at least 10 years.

Note: Remove during flowering if crops depend on pollination by bees.

What to cover:

Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts, turnips, swedes, radish, carrot, parsnip, celery, spinach, parsley, onions, leeks, peas, lettuce and all types of oriental vegetables. Strawberries, raspberries and currants.

Veggiemesh will keep our the following pests: Carrot fly, cabbage white butterfly, pea moth, cutworm, leek moth, leaf miners and many species of aphids.
