Insect Nets

Grekkon Limited’s insect nets protect your crops against all insect pests that attack growing crops at any stage. Our insect screen nets have the following features.

  1. Have UV treatment. This is to keep away the harmful reflects of UV rays on crops, and to prevent quick degradation of the net as a result. The net has a usable lifespan of 6 years.
  2. Insect nets are white in color to provide a highly reflective, insect repelling surface.
  3. They come in two different pore sizes, 0.4mm and 0.9mm. The former keeps away the tiniest of insects such as white flies, which the latter pore size may not. 0.4mm pore size agricultural insect nets are for crops that are economically affected by such insects. Examples are; tomato and sweet pepper. 0.9mm is effective in crops like herbs or tree crops which white flies do not prey on. The 0.4mm net is 20% more expensive than the 0.9mm.
  4. It has 2 widths; 3 meters and 5.5 meters from which growers choose according to their project.

  • Hi Customer service,
    I would be needing approx 50 sq. m. of net – either bird net or 30% green shade net. It is to keep monkey’s out and I would add it onto a frame. How do I get this in Kilifi? Can I order and pay and then you send it? Which in your opinion would be better? I thought the bird net would be easier to water the little garden without requiring to enter with the hosepipe. Thank you Alex
