    I have a 36ft x 16ft area fenced off 5 feet high. How tight can I pull the netting over top. How much will it sag?

    Do you have webbing around the edge of the netting with grommets?
     
  3. you can stretch rope across then zip tie the netting to the fence.
    I have 2x4's attached to my fence post (which I will be replacing with 4x4's) and attaching wire across the 4x4's and zip tie the net to the fence

    Question? Would this netting be bad for bats? We have bats and I believe that this can cause problems for them. I would love to use it, but without finding bats entwined in it.
     
  6. I would think the Bats would detect the netting and not fly into it.
