Bird Barrier Net the Different Types of Netting for Vineyards and Wineries

Anti-Bird Barrier Net in Vineyards

Bird Barrier Net for Vineyards the best option for your grape farm. When trying to obtain wine with exquisite taste and a high wine rating, everybody knows the importance of growing the grapevines in good soil that is rich in nutrients and the importance of abundant sunshine. 

After a year of those conditions being met and nursing along what looks like a very promising crop, the last thing you want to happen is for birds to harvest some of that crop, that looks so promising in both quality and quantity, before you do.

If the price for the grapes that are harvested is $3,000/ton and 4 tons/acre were harvest and birds got 20% of the crop, that means 5 tons/acre could have been harvest with no bird loss.

The birds ate 1 ton/acre:  $3,000/acre for bird feed!  This is a lot of money that can be spend on bird control and still leave a better bottom line.

Bird Barrier Net
Bird barrier netting keeps birds out of your crop. Here, a crop of strawberries.

Kind of birds that eat grapes

Watch out for the following birds:  starlings, other blackbirds, cedar waxwings, robins, sparrows, and finches.

If any of these birds are around, bird barrier netting of one of three types should be install prior to the grapes starting to mature.  The three types are extruded nettingknitted netting, and knotted netting.

These can be apply in one of three netting methods:  as side netting, as drape netting (single row or multiple row), or as canopy netting.

Extruded netting with Bird barrier netting Extruded netting is made from polypropylene, which is a versatile polymer.  It is lightweight and is UV treated. Extruded netting should not have a mesh larger than ¾ of an inch (~20mm). For smaller birds, it may be desirable to have another layer of netting under the first.

Extruded netting is highly durable since it is made of high-quality material. It is usually made of polypropylene and is UV treated so that it will last for a number of years while being exposed to sunlight.

Bird Barrier Knitted netting

Knitted netting is made using a monofilament of high-density polyethylene.

This makes it a good option for heavy-duty use since it is more rugged and durable than extruded netting.

It is strong and flame resistant. It is easy to install and is lightweight enough so that it will not harm your grapes.

Various filaments can be looseVarious filaments can be loosely twisted together to form a cord and these cords knitted together to form a mesh. This makes an even sturdier knitted netting.

Knotted netting

Like knitted nettingknotted netting is also made using a monofilament of high-density polyethylene.  The difference is that during the manufacturing process the filaments, at the point of intersection to form the mesh, are knotted together. 

This makes knotted netting even tougher and more durable than knitted netting.  In fact, the breaking strength of each strand at the knot is more than 47 lbs (21 kg).  Knotted netting, given its great effectiveness, is one of the best options for commercial vineyards for bird control.

Anti bird Netting
While knitted netting is more rugged and durable than extruded netting, depending on the number and thickness of filaments, it tends to cost more too.

This results in an “industrial” grade product that is UV treated, impermeable, and flame and rot resistant.

Which one for you?

Think about your vineyard.  What kinds of birds live close by?  How thick should the netting be?  How heavy? Which type of netting would be best?  After thinking about this, contact HORTOMALLAS®®
