Premium Flex Long Life and Super Premium Flex Extra Long Life - The search is over for the best bird netting we could find at an affordable price and quality we like. We are carrying 3 grades, the Long Life & Extra Long Life netting. Specs as follows: High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) knitted yarn that is green in color with yellow stripes. Rip-Stop construction prevents tears from spreading. Special UV stabilization. Soft yarn nets are gentle on the crops. Easy to apply. Stretches in length and width. At Seven Springs Farm we are putting this product to the test by leaving it up all year round, so far so good. In the spring of 2010 we built an arbor over our blueberries to hold the netting. We have 22 plants that are about 21 years old. Ever since then we have harvested over 10 gallons worth of blueberries per year. In the past we would have gotten about 2 to 3 gallons, even with the use of bird flash tape. We are sold on this product!!
Note - The manufacturer's claim on this product life is as follows; Long Life (LL) 3- 4 seasons or longer. Extra Long Life (ELL) 7 - 10 seasons. *Note on Seasons - This refers to a 6 - 8 week season that the netting is used.
Please note that we have had our ELL netting up since the spring of 2010. It stays up all year in full sun and has gone through a rough winter as well. Currently the net looks as good as the day we put it up with no degrading or wear.
