However, pests and insects also cause immense damage to agricultural yield by feeding on or sucking plants, depositing eggs on crops and spreading disease.
Moreover, these insects also develop resistance to chemical pesticides that are still used, resulting in a significant reduction in the efficiency of these materials.
This creates the need for an alternative solution to protect crops from pests and insects. Geofab Industries answers this need with its wide range of advanced anti-insect nets, which block the entry of pests and insects into the crop environment and significantly reduce the use of pesticides.
These nets are commonly used in the following structures to protect vegetable, herb, orchard and flower crops:
Type of Anti-Insect Nets
GFI’s anti-insect nets are differentiated by hole size (mesh = number of holes per inch). The following types of nets are available and are applied based on the type of insects prevalent in the area:
1. 17-Mesh Net
This net is used for protection against fruit flies (Mediterranean fruit fly and fig fruit fly) in orchards and vineyards, grape moth and pomegranate deudorix livia. This net is also used for protection against climatic elements such as hail, wind and excess solar radiation.
2. 25-Mesh Net
This net is used for protection against Mediterranean fruit fly in peppers.
3. 40-Mesh Net
This net is used for partial blocking of whiteflies where climatic conditions do not allow the use of very high mesh
4. 50-Mesh Net
This net is used for blocking whiteflies, aphids and leafminer. Also available in the color grey.
