Q: "What are the differences between the two types of Bird-X bird netting? I'm not sure which would be better for my application. Thanks Tim."
Answer: The main differences are in the size of the mesh openings, the strength, the flexibility and the weight.
Structural bird net from Bird-X: Standard bird netting from Bird-X
Mesh openings: 1/2 Inch Mesh opening: 3/4 Inch
Strength: 8.5 psf (pounds/square foot) Strength: 2.5 psf (pounds/square foot)
Both are black, UV protected, plastic, barely noticeable. The standard is more commonly used by home gardeners and the structural by vineyards, construction companies, farmers, etc.
There is also a third type, Bird Net PE Plus Premium Grade Knotted ¾ In. Polyethylene 25x50 Ft. This is preferred for orchards or commercial settings where you may want to keep out small animals as well as birds and bats. Because it is knotted, there is stretch to it and it drapes more easily. The mesh openings are 3/4 inch.
If you have questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org. These bird nettings come in several sizes.
Thank you for your question.
