Does Bunnings have appropriate pipe to make a frame for netting? Also, do you sell black netting, or only white?
We now only carry white bird netting as we removed the black netting from our range several years ago. Concerns were raised about birds inadvertently flying into it and getting stuck, as it was not visible to them.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks so much for all the helpful information, Mitchell.
You are more than welcome to borrow my Charlie. No not him indoors my shin-Tzu. He would work for nothing but I don’t believe in slavery.What about a battery or mains scarecrow of him indoors. Or make the wee birdies watch an episode of the bold and the beautiful. They will be so engrossed they will forget to eat
Success! I bought 4 x 4m medium duty PVC 20mm conduit @ $3.54 each for each tree.
Also 1m galvanised steel pipe (16x1.2mm) at $3.70 each for each tree, to make 4 ‘stakes’ to support the conduit.
My son used an angle grinder to cut the pipe, with angled cuts for the ends going into the ground.
Purchased 4 x 10m Econetting anti bird netting at $30.98 each. Hopefully enough to cover.
Sounds great, @RuthKerr! I'm sure our other members, considering a similar project, would appreciate seeing what you've accomplished if you'd like to share it with us.
