What size mesh will stop butterflies?

We recommend using a mesh size of 7mm or smaller for your butterfly netting. This will be fine enough to keep butterflies and other pests out of your garden without causing them any harm.!

What is the best netting for brassicas?

Brassica netting or butterfly netting is the ideal solution for protecting brassicas in your garden from butterfly larvae and other pests. Our netting is made from UV-stabilised polyethylene that is soft enough to be harmless to butterflies yet strong enough to keep them from reaching your plants.

Alternatively, fruit cages are also a great option for protecting your brassicas. They are designed to cover an entire area, providing effective protection from all sorts of pests.

Does butterfly netting stop bees?

If you want to stop bees from getting at your plants, you should opt for a butterfly mesh size of 7mm or smaller. This will be fine enough to keep out butterflies, as well as other insects like bees.

How do you use butterfly netting?

Butterfly mesh netting is really easy to use. Simply lay the netting directly over your brassicas or other plants and secure it with pegs or clips. The netting should be taut, but not too tight so that it doesn't damage your plants.

It's also important to make sure the netting is securely in place, as even the smallest gaps can allow butterflies and other pests to get in.
