Pond nets for protection from herons A heron net is a type of netting that is placed over a pond or other body of water to prevent herons from landing on or fishing out of the water. It is a way to keep the birds away from certain areas and prevent them from using the pond as a food source. Order your custom heron netting from us to protect your pond, with or without a wrap-around ketteling option.
There are several ways to protect a pond from herons:
You can erect a net or wire mesh fence around the pond. This will prevent herons from entering the pond directly.
You can also install special heron repellent systems designed to keep the birds away from certain areas. These systems can consist of reflective sheeting, speakers with startle sounds, or even springs.
Another option is to cover the pond with a mesh or netting cover that will keep the birds from landing on the water.
You can also consider designing the pond to be less attractive to herons, such as by creating deeper areas or planting the pond with plants that are less attractive to herons.
It is important to note that it is illegal to kill or injure herons. It is equally important to protect the natural environment of wildlife. Therefore, any protective measures you take should be humane and environmentally friendly methods.
What is the use of a heron net?
A heron net can be made of a variety of materials, such as plastic, steel, or nylon, and can come in different sizes and shapes to suit the needs of the user. It is important that the meshes are small enough to prevent herons from slipping through, but also large enough to allow other animals to pass through.
How do I attach a heron net?
Use pegs or stakes to secure the net to the edges of the pond. You can also attach the net to trees or other sturdy structures nearby, you can also use ropes or cable ties to secure the net to the edges of the pond.
It is important that the net is firmly and sturdily attached to ensure that it keeps the herons away, but also to ensure that it is not damaged by other animals or the wind. It is also important to check and maintain the net regularly to make sure it stays in good condition and maintains its effectiveness.The net should also have some clearance from the ground and the water surface. This will ensure that the heron cannot put his head through the mesh when he is at the edge of the pond or in shallow water. Otherwise, he might be able to slip through the meshes and use the pond as a food source.
