Butterfly & Pigeon Net

Strong netting that is easy to place over crops for pigeon and butterfly protection.

  • Can be ordered in multiples of 10m. e.g. order 3 x 10m if you want 30m and it will be cut in one piece.
  • Will last many seasons.
  • Mesh dimensions 5mm x 7mm.
  • Black.

Pigeons  -  attack a wide range of plants, but seem particularly keen on the leaves of brassicas (such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbages and cauliflower), cherries, and peas.


  • Leaves will be ripped leaving only the centre stalk behind.
  • Plants look like skeletons and no crop will be produced.
  • Heavy pigeon grazing will prevent pea development.
  • Pigeons also eat the fruit of cherries and currants.

Butterflies  -  adult butterflies do not cause any damage to plants. However, their larvae do. Butterflies can wriggle through normal bird netting.


  • Large cabbage white larvae (yellow and black patterned caterpillars) will destroy small Brassica plants and severely damage larger plants. Large infestations can often defoliate whole Brassica crops if left untreated.
  • Small cabbage white larvae (green caterpillars) feed singly and will often burrow deep into head forming Brassicas causing holes and contaminating leaves with excrement.

Very good
Great netting and is heavy enough not to get tangled. Review by Marian / (Posted on 01/08/2019)
