Blueberry netting is a product that helps farmers protect their blueberry bushes from birds and other pests. It is made of strong, durable materials that can withstand the elements and provide protection for many years.
The netting comes in many different shapes and sizes, so it can be customized to fit your blueberry bushes perfectly! You can choose between a square shape or a round shape.
Blueberry netting is made of polyethylene, which is a synthetic material that will not degrade over time. This means that once you install it, it will last as long as your blueberry bushes do. If you’re worried about it getting dirty over time, don’t be—it’s been treated with UV inhibitors that help protect it from sun damage and other environmental factors that can cause deterioration.
The benefits of using blueberry netting include:
- Allows for easy harvesting in the spring when there is no snow or ice covering them up
- Protects against birds such as crows and squirrels who like to eat your berries
- Prevents frost damage during periods of extreme weather conditions such as droughts, blizzards, etc…

Blueberry netting can be used in both commercial and home blueberry growing. It is typically placed over the rows of blueberries to keep out birds and other animals who would otherwise eat the berries before they are ready for harvest.
It is also used to keep out insects that may damage or eat the berries, such as leaf miners or mites.
How long will my blueberry netting last?
Blueberry netting is designed to be durable, so it should last as long as you need it. The material is UV-resistant and UV-stabilized, so it will not fade in the sun or break down after exposure to sunlight. If you use your blueberry netting for a season (or two), then you can expect it to last for several years before needing replacement.
What is the best way to store my blueberry netting?
When storing blueberry netting for a later use, make sure that it’s dry and clean before putting it away. If possible, fold or roll up your blueberry netting in such a way that allows air circulation through the material; this will help prevent mold from growing on top of your fabric if moisture has seeped into crevices or folds inside your package while being stored away from use during winter months.
Why do I need to cover my blueberry plants in netting?
- Blueberries are susceptible to birds and other wildlife, especially when the fruit is ripening.
- Netting creates a barrier between your blueberry plants and their natural predators, allowing for growth and production of fruit without interruption.
