Enviromesh is barrier control protected vegetable and fruit crops from most insect, bird and mammel pests. Rain can pass through the mesh so it does not need to be removed for watering, but the mesh also protects crops from damage from wind and hail. However, it allows good ventilation so does not create warm, humid conditions – typical of fleece covers – that encourages diseases.
Enviromesh will provide some control against:
- Cabbage root fly
- Carrot fly
- Pea moth
- Cabbage white butterfly
- Leaf miners
- Many species of aphids
Flea beetle is discouraged but not controlled completely.
- Domestic pest
- High winds
- Heavy rain
The net is laid flat over the bed with plenty of slack to allow the crop to grow. It must be pegged down securely as any gaps will allow the pests in.
Note: Enviromesh also keeps the pollinating insects out, so any crop that needs insects for pollination should be uncovered when they reach the flowering stage.
