Insect Netting, sometimes referred to as Insect Screen and Insect Mesh is a must for any plot of vegetables, crops, fruit and trees. It provides protection from not only insects, but from inclement weather and helps slow water evaporation aiding the health of soil.  QVS provide two types of insect netting 'Premier' and 'Ultimate'. Both types of netting are high quality polyethylene with tight meshes, perfect for your vegetables and crops. Insect mesh can be attached to either a frame (home made or shop bought), polytunnels, hoops, or it can be draped across plants and crops. The netting protects from all manner of insects, rabbits, caterpillars and more. This netting is great for gardeners and professionals who want to steer away from using pesticides and insecticides, growing fruit and veg organically. When attaching the netting to a frame it is advisable to staple the netting and secure to the ground with pegs. QVS provide both  Crop Cage Framing and  Metal & Plastic Pegs for effective netting applications. If you are planning to use a DIY frame then bamboo, wooden or metal posts are ideal. QVS also supply a range of  Figo's (crop connectors) to make your job a little easier in home frame construction.
