Why gardeners or farmers should use the aviary net, and bird lovers to keep them in!

Aviary netting: Uses and Benefits in Agriculture to keep birds out

Aviary net helps you achieve the expected results for your efforts , as everybody would like to to have great yields at the end of the growing season for each crop. That is what every gardener wants: the best yield with the least effort. But it turns out sometimes that crops do not receive the macro-environment they deserve to grow fully and perform well. They are either attacked by insect pests, diseases or birds. However, there are ways gardeners can prevent their crops from these attack.Many gardens who have tried using the bird netting method achieved great results, both in combating insects (anti-aphid nets) which are transmitters of viruses and other pathogens or to create an effective bird barrier. If your garden is under a possible attack by birds, there are ways you can prevent it from happening. Aviary net is great for containing small birds as well as birds of prey. The mesh spacing size of these nets is small enough to prevent smaller sized birds from passing through.Birds cause significant damage to crops when they attack the fruits in the garden or orchard. A whole commercial plantation can be lost to bird attack in just a couple of days… or even hours. Birds reduce the quality of fruits leaving the gardener with little or nothing. At harvest time, the grower may only be left with a few good fruits to harvest, probably already pecked and damaged as far as being able to sell them.

Stop worrying about bird damage in your farm.

Protecting crops from bird attacks using aviary net is not only effective but has several advantages: it allows farmers to secure their crops from the nursery seedling stage to harvest time and also increase yield. People plant crops on a commercial scale to earn more profit. And successful growing operations can be measured by the profit made which is basically the yield at harvest time, and this depends on two factors: quantity sold and quality which determines the price.Whole fruits that have not been ruined are the only ones that one is able to sell in the market, and this means having to protect crops from birds in order to receive those higher  priced . So, to have a decent profit, it is just a matter of protecting the fruits from marauding birds.  Crops like tomatoes also need protection from birds. After staking, the gardener can use the aviary net especially in growing areas where a large population of birds usually come to nest.

Things Gardeners should know about the Aviary net

The net helps contain both small and large birds. The spacing of the net meshes is tight enough to stop birds from passing through it. Another advantage of the net is that it is lightweight yet strong and long lasting against UV rays. However, choosing the right net is important as there are different types and sizes of net available. Gardeners have to choose the net width they feel can offer complete protection or according to recommendations from experts. Bird nets are not only strong but very easy to work with. A well-protected garden will lead to increased yield and better profit. This is why gardeners are advised to protect their crops from damages using aviary netting. This netting is sturdy and can prevent birds from having contact with crops and causing damage. It has also been used effectively in different parts of the world. The net is very flexible and installation is also very easy, even at heights.

GUACAMALLAS or CHICKENMALLA netting can be used both to keep birds off crops or in an aviary to keep birds inside for human observation either in a home setting or in a zoo.  Aviaries are large cages built to keep birds in captivity while giving the semblance of being able to fly freely simulating on the inside of the large cage the autochthonous vegetable environmental setting that they would  have in the wild.Aviaries can range from a cage just a few square meters of space placed in the yard or a full sized simulated natural environment that is used in parks or zoos.  Aviary nets are  very resistant to parrots or toucans and other birds that tend to chew on the net. These nets will keep both birds inside the protected area, but will also prevent wild birds to either attack the hosted animals or eat from their feeders and bring with them diseases that could harm them.  CHICKENMALLA is more advisable there where the installation will be permanent and in windy areas.CHICKENMALLA aviary net is an extruded semirigid mesh available in 2 and 4 meter wide rolls, is very easy to trim to size and to install according to each cage that needs to be built.  The pieces can be sewn together with a black nylon fishing lines or polyester wire, these product are very resistant to the sun and to humidity, feces or salt water.Commercial exotic bird breeders use these nets to raise their chicks and sell them once they are mature enough to withstand travel and their adult colorful feathers will allow them to be desirable pets in stores.  Being made out of plastic they will not rust and harm the birds with sharp spikes like metal chicken wire this aviary net will be your best purchase ever!
