    Lowes has a good one that is used for keeping birds off of fruit trees. Thats what I used. Comes in a roll that when opened is 7'x50' Works for me and is inexpensive.Its also known as deer netting. Hope this helps.

    I got my flight netting from Cutler Supply. It's much heavier than the deer netting which is what I used to use. Of course it costs more too.

    Thanks, that's a much better option than ordering netting from MPC for 115.00!

    Quote:same here, I will have to see what happens with snow though. Its a pretty fine net but I have a feeling that wet snow will accumulate.

    I recently ordered some knitted netting from a company in NJ called Endurance Net. They have a great selection of closeout netting so I was able to get 6.5 x 50 for $50 SHIPPED! This is the 1" heavyweight that will hold up to the Maine winter.

    I highly recommend this company. Every other place I looked at wanted to sell a whole roll and then shipping was by truck. My 50 feet is coming UPS.

    Hope this is helpful to someone! http://www.endurancenetinc.com/
