Bird netting is a humane and accessible tool used for pest bird exclusion.  You may wish to keep pest birds away due to noise, waste or damage. Properly installed nets help prevent birds from accessing specific areas of your property.

Today we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about bird netting. We’ll discuss the most common varieties of nets, their various commercial uses, and the main benefits of installation.

The Types of Netting for Birds

Bird netting serves the singular purpose of preventing birds from landing and nesting on your property. Based on your needs, a pest technician can match the proper netting to your situation.

Most netting comes in matte black coloring, in custom sizes based on how much you need. More personalized choices when it comes to netting installation include: 

Different types of mesh. 

There are several different kinds of bird netting mesh. Each type is designed against different sizes and species of birds. Smaller, fine mesh works for pigeon or bat problems. Heavy-duty, thicker mesh nets are designed for larger, more aggressive birds.

Throw nets vs. hanging nets. 

If you’re using bird netting for agriculture or a vineyard, you’ll want lightweight nets that can be thrown or draped over your crops. If you’re interested in protecting an outdoor facade, you’ll need hanging nets that can be installed with cords, zippers, and connectors.

Can bird netting be used for my industry?

Commercial bird netting can benefit just about any industry, including yours. Industry-specific applications include:

Spectator protection at sporting events. 

If you own or maintain a stadium or arena, bird netting is a great solution. It can protect spectators from more than just birds, too. Professional stadiums frequently use mesh netting to keep spectators safe from foul balls, pucks, and other flying hazards.

If you work in wine, you’re probably familiar with pest birds picking your grapes. That’s why there are lightweight, small knit mesh bird nets for draping over grapes and preventing scavenging birds. Nets protect all types of fruit from bird attacks.

Keeping your store facade from being damaged. 

Most bird waste is highly acidic. This means that it eats away any paint or varnishing it comes in contact with. Strategically installed bird netting near or around your storefront can keep birds far away from vulnerable surfaces.

What are the main benefits of having bird netting installed?
