Insect net

Insect net also called Suzuki netting is a finely woven net that keeps out insects, such as the Asian fruit fly Drosophila suzukii. The insect net is made of HDPE. This is a high-density polyethylene. The net is also resistant to UV radiation due to additives added to give it a desirable KLY rating. Standard width of the insect nets are 1.0 - 1.5 -2.0-, 3.0-, 3.5 -4.0 meters. FruitSecurity Holland has the possibility to make confection. In this way all desired widths can be achieved. The standard roll length is 200 meters. There are possibilities to tailor the rolls. The insect netting is available in 2 colors. Black and white. Black insect netting is often used on the front and sides of cover systems. The black insect screen gives a better view. White insect screen is the standard color and gives less shadow.

Suzuki fruit fly

The Asian Fruit Fly, also known as Suzuki fruit fly, has the Latin name Drosophila suzukii. This fruit fly became a real pest in a relatively short time. In 2011 the fly was first found in the Benelux, in 2014 the first economic damage was reported in Belgium. The flies are only 3mm in size. Research has shown that insect nets stop the Suzuki fruit fly if the mesh size does not exceed 1 square millimeter.

Insect Plagues

Insect nets are often used in combination with biological control agents. For example, with biological control in the form of natural enemies. Biological control is more effective if the cultivation surfaces are protected with insect nets. The natural enemies of the insect pests, which are also insects, are kept inside the system, while the wrong insects remain outside.

Insect net

In fruit cultivation more and more experience is gained with insect netting. More and more information is becoming available. Practice shows that insect netting can stop pests and slow them down enormously which is beneficial for the crops.
