Try Memphis Net ( www.memphisnet.net/ ). I got my netting there, 7 feet by
100 feet. I am sure there are other sizes. Very inexpensive also. Good

Subject: [Market-farming] bird netting & Hortonova
Can anyone recommend a good source for bird netting? I need no bigger than
1/2-3/4" openings as we have some teeny bird pests and hopefully, a net that
is wider than 12-14' and long. I've tried various plastic nettings but they
don't hold up under our sun, whereas an old nylon fruit tree net that I used
to cover plum and blueberries 10+ years in Mass. is still going strong after
5+ years use in tropical conditions (except for the places where I had to
cut the net to free trapped (and very hostile) boas). I believe I had
purchased that net from Mellinger's which seems to be out of the INet
business. Without netting here it is impossible to bring in a crop of most
any fruit, including tomatoes, peppers, papaya, oranges, etc.
I have used Hortonova here for trellising, but again it doesn't last much
more than a season, whereas the nylon trellis nettings just keep on going
and are strong enough to support massive bean vines, cukes, tomatoes, etc.
Thanks and Best wishes to all,
