We have had many requests for insect netting to cover house or caravan windows, or tent openings. Normal mosquito netting is too coarse for small insects like the midge, they crawl through it. Our midge netting is exactly the same very fine mesh material used in our midge head nets, and is packaged in convenient lengths. The midgie netting is made of comfortable, very fine mesh nylon, visibility is excellent. It is a delicate fabric.

The edges of the netting width - the selvage - are woven to prevent fraying, the cut ends of the lengths are plain and best overlapped. The fabric can be handwashed at no more than 30 degrees centigrade, ironed as for nylon or cooler. It can also be hung over indirect heat to smooth out crumpling.

We've been asked - how many holes per square inch? We can't get manufacturer figures so we cut and tried counting across one square inch, and got 50 to 60 before the eyes boggled. This gives a mesh size of 2,500 to 3,600 per square inch. We hope quoting this doesn't get us into trouble with Trading Standards!

The netting is 1.5 metres wide (about 60 inches) and comes in 1.1 metre (3 and a half feet) lengths, and 3 metres (10 feet). We can also provide a jumbo pack of the netting; this is 20 metres long (60 feet). All packs are available in black, white, green, blue, pink or stone.

Black is best for overall visibility, it's like looking through sunglasses, but white cuts down less light. White netting lets through more light than black, but the problem with white is that direct light causes it to shimmer so you may see a rainbow effect, and also light can cause it to appear a little hazy looking through. It excels in the dark! The green insect netting is a more camouflage colour, like the white it can shimmer a little in bright light. The green also has an attractive two-tone effect, sometimes you see a reddy shade.

The high Quality lightweight midgie netting is packed in a resealable grip-seal bag. No fixtures, fittings or instructions are included, sorry, you'll have to fit it yourself! Some customers use sticky tape or blue tack, some use velcro. If you do use velcro, be very careful sewing and using, as the velcro will be a lot stronger than the netting. Others have made a light wooden detachable frame for the window, and stapled the netting to it.

Chemical repellents can dissolve plastic, even the dashboard of a car. Our netting has been soak tested with Stop Bite, our natural midge repellent, and it is also suitable as mosquito netting. Please note our own repellent is currently unavailable due to EU regulations (BPD - Biocidal Products Directive). This Directive thinks that natural products from (edible) herbs whose uses have been known for decades or centuries and even back to the Romans, the Ancient Greeks and before them, are chemicals and dangerous - well, aren't we all. We are investigating the solution to this, whether it's different labelling or different formulation. Sorry for the inconvenience to our loyal customers. We are now selling CarePlus natural midge repellent with lemon eucalyptus, suitable for children from 3 months.
