Keeping insects out of your greenhousewith insect netting systems

Protecting your crop from outside influences through the ventilation windows in the greenhouse. Unwanted insects can damage your crop. It is important to keep unwanted insects out of your greenhouse. However, opening the vents is important for an optimal climate in the greenhouse.

By installing a harmonica insect screen in the ventilation windows, the insects are kept out. When the windows open and close, the insect screen is folded up and takes up little space in terms of light incidence. The insect gauze falls completely in the air vents and is often applied in organic cultivation and seed production.

Insect netting for horticulture

Insect netting has become an essential component in the horticultural industry as an effective method of protecting crops from harmful insects.

Insect netting, also known as insect repellent netting or insect net, is a fine mesh used to protect crops from insect pests. The mesh is made of durable material such as polyethylene and has small openings that prevent insects from entering crops, while still allowing the passage of light, air and water.

Protection against harmful insects

One of the main advantages of insect netting is its ability to protect crops from harmful insects. Insects such as aphids, whiteflies, thrips and caterpillars can cause significant damage to crops by feeding on the leaves, flowers or fruits. Insect netting provides a physical barrier that keeps these insects out and prevents them from feeding on crops. This allows gardeners to reduce insecticides and pesticides, promoting a more environmentally friendly and sustainable growing practice.

Protection against diseases

Moreover, insect netting also protects crops from insect-borne diseases. Some insects can spread viruses, bacteria and fungi that are harmful to plants. By using insect netting, horticulturists can reduce the risk of such diseases and improve the health and productivity of their crops.

Different applications

Insect netting can be used in different ways in horticulture, depending on specific needs and crops. It can be used to cover entire greenhouses or tunnels, with the netting stretched tightly over a metal or wooden frame. It can also be used to protect individual planting beds or rows of crops, where the mesh is placed as a protective fence around the crops.


Besides protecting crops in horticulture, insect netting is also used in the propagation of young plants. It prevents insects from attacking seeds and damaging young plants, ensuring a healthy start to cultivation.

The use of insect netting in horticulture offers numerous benefits, including protection from harmful insects, reduction in the use of insecticides and pesticides, control of climatic conditions and improvement of plant health and productivity. It has become a valuable tool for horticulturists around the world who strive for sustainable and successful cultivation practices. By implementing insect netting, horticulturists can effectively protect their crops and achieve healthy harvests.
