Tendamesh a very light (around 20g/m2), soft mesh that is used to control most insect, mammel and bird pests by acting as a physical barrier and preventing the pest from reaching the crop. Because the mesh is so light it is suitable for using on delicate crops.
- Flea Beetle (except with high populations)
- Allium Leaf Miners
Always cover the crop immediately after transplanting or sowing a crop. The mesh does not stretch so sufficient slack must be allowed for crop growth. Plants should be inspected to ensure they are free from insect pests before they are covered. It is advisable to protect any seedlings that are grown for transplanting.
When covering always ensure there are no gaps. Tendamesh works by providing a physical barrier, if there are gaps the best will be able to reach the crop.
Note: The mesh does not protect from pests that emerge from the soil. Do not grow crops on land that has grown an infected crop previously.
Secure the tendamesh with Ground Staples.
Tendamesh can also be used to screen glasshouse doors and vents to exclude insects.
