Bird Netting

Basic Info


Bird netting is used in the bird control industry and gardeners alike to keep birds from entering various areas on things. Their primary function in the bird control setting is to keep pest birds from roosting and therefore fall under the “roost inhibitor” category of bird control products.

Bird netting is one of the most effective forms of bird control. A properly install bird net provides an inpenetrable barrier that birds cannot break through. Bird netting is particularly useful when a specific area needs to maintain positive aesthetics, needs to remain in plain sight, or other exclusion options are not effective.

Similarly to bird spikes, the phsyical barrier qualities mean that applications will require FULL coverage of the the desired area to be fully effective. In cases of keeping birds out of foodstuffs, crops, or any product that needs to remain bird damage & disease-free, netting is most like the best option.

Bird netting works best when there is a specific entry point from which birds are entering an area. For wide areas that are too large to entirely cover with netting, we recommend a series of sonic or ultrasonic bird repelling units (click here to view some). Although they are individually expensive, the cost of using repellers vs using netting is usually significantly less, with good results.

Netting Materials

Modern bird netting is usually made of polyethylene, a durable and long-lasting plastic material. It is also usually coated with some form of UV protection additive, to keep ultraviolet rays from causing damage over extended periods of outdoor exposure.

Bird Netting Sizes

Bird netting comes in a variety of coverage sizes, from as small as 7′ X 20′ sheets, up to 5000′ X 14′

The circumference of the netting can range from as thin as 1/4″ Standard to as thick as 3/4″ Structural/Heavy Duty thickness
