Insect Netting Screening for greenhouses

Keeping the good in and keeping the bad out.

Insect netting is a straightforward solution to a globally recognized problem. As the name indicates, it is designed to keep harmful insects out of your greenhouse and keeping useful insects and bees inside by applying a netting system in the ventilation windows. The meshes are available with different sizes of openings and can thus be installed to keep out specific species.

Insect Netting System

There are two types of insect netting, integrated or added on with a cassette. In the design stage, choosing for integration options in the aluminium system, even-though not used, allows for quick installation afterwards during remodelling, reselling, re-purposing or anticipating on new unwanted pests.

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a holistic approach to pest control in greenhouses that emphasizes long-term prevention through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, and modification of cultural practices. This not only helps to reduce the use of chemical pesticides, which can be harmful to both the plants and the environment, but also promotes a more sustainable form of agriculture.


Integrated insect netting systems are generally built into the structure of new greenhouses and offer minimal light interception, while cassette systems are more used to add-on during retrofitting, upgrade or simply as an afterthought. 

Yes, at least the provisions for a later install. To create a future-proof greenhouse, where you have your Integrated Pest Management under control, insect netting is a must. 

The mesh opening size greatly depends on the presence of pests in the area of the greenhouse. Your IPM strategy must also be considered when choosing the mesh opening. The below table contains the most common pests and mesh sizes applied in greenhouses: 

0,15 x 0,35 mm Thrips
0,4 x 0,45 mm Small white fly
0,4 x 0,7 mm White fly (mostly applied)
0,6 x 0,6 mm Lice
0,8 x 0,8 mm Mine Fly, Weevil
1,35 x 1,35 cm Cabbage Root Fly
1,0 x 1,5 cm Bees
