Using Knotted Bird Netting to Cover a Pen

Question about the product Bird Net Knotted, Polyethylene 25 ft by 25 ft.

Q:"Can this bird netting be used for as game bird netting for bird cages? I'm looking for poultry netting to cover a pen that is 15 feet by 25 feet." Thanks. McKey

Answer: This knotted bird netting has 3/4 inch square openings and is quite flexible. Easily wrap this garden netting around a pen or bird cage. Cut the bird net be cut to fit. Depending upon the pen structure, use one of these methods to attach the bird net. These are usually used to keep birds out rather than in.

1. Wire and polyclips: Often used on concrete, brick or steel structures. Polyclips easily fold over wire and snap together through bird netting spacing 1 – 3 feet apart depending on the application. Polyclips come in a case of 250.
2. Epoxy caulk: Purchase at hardware stores. Use on concrete,brick and steel. Or purchase special adhesive from Ssfe Home Products.
3. Plastic banding and stapling. For wood structures, staple to a solid wood surface through the plastic banding that is woven into the netting every 4 to 5 strands.
4. Wood lath strips: On wooden structures, use nails and wood lathe strips.

Thank you for your question. Good luck with your birds.

Sincerely,
Barbara
