Bird netting or anti-bird netting is a form of bird pest control. It is a net used to prevent birds from reaching certain areas.


Crop protection[edit]

Bird nets are used to prevent bird damage of vegetable and fruit crops as well as seedlings.[1]

Fish protection[edit]

Bird netting may be used to protect fisheries and fish wildlife reserves from predator birds.[2]

Building protection[edit]

Bird netting is one of the most effective and long lasting ways of bird proofing buildings and other structures against all urban bird species. It provides a discreet and impenetrable barrier that protects premises without harming the birds. Bird netting can be particularly effective for large open areas such as roofs and loading bays. Design considerations include the type and material of the fixings utilised and the bird species requiring exclusion.
