Insect Mesh

With FruitSecurity Holland's insect mesh, you are assured of a safe harvest!

Insect mesh - also known as Suzuki mesh - is a finely woven mesh that keeps out insects such as the Asian fruit fly Drosophila suzukii. The mesh is made of HDPE, a high-density polyethylene. The insect mesh is also resistant to UV radiation due to additives added to achieve a desirable KLY value.

Insect mesh sizes

Standard insect mesh widths are: 1.0 - 1.5 - 2.0 - 3.0 - 3.5 - 4.0 metres. FruitSecurity Holland has the option of ready-to-assemble, whereby all desired widths can be supplied. The standard roll length is 200 metres. There are possibilities to customise the rolls. Insect netting is available in 2 colours: black and white. Black insect mesh is often used on the front and sides of canopy systems and gives a better 'see-through' view. White insect mesh is the standard colour and gives less shade.

Stopping the Asian fruit fly with insect mesh

The Asian Fruit Fly, also known as the Suzuki fruit fly, has the Latin name Drosophila suzukii. This fruit fly became a pest in a short time. In 2011, the fly was first found in the Benelux countries. In 2014, the first economic damage was reported in Belgium. The flies are only 3 millimetres in size. Research has shown that you can use insect netting to stop the Suzuki Fruit Fly if the mesh size does not exceed one square millimetre.

Which vegetables can be grown under insect mesh?

Insect mesh can be used in the cultivation of various vegetables. FruitSecurity insect netting can be used with, among others: carrots, cabbages, leeks, onions and shallots.

Natural pest controllers

When effectively controlling insect pests, mesh nets are often used in combination with natural enemies of the insects. These biological control agents are more effective when the cultivation surfaces are screened with insect mesh. The natural enemies, including insects, are thus kept inside the system. The unwanted insects stay outside.

In fruit growing, more and more experience is gained with insect mesh and more information is becoming available. Practical experience shows that insect mesh can stop or greatly delay various insect pests.
