Howitec Netting is your partner in the area of al kind of netting. For every purpose, whether it involves an horticultural, sportive or technical application, we deliver the proper netting.
For the horticulture we do have a standard assortment of insect-, shade-, climate-, and bird-netting.

CAVEA Netting Cages
Besides this standard horticulture program, we provide customized Cavea Netting Cages for seed companies, research station and universities. These netting cages, also called isolations, are fully customized and produced in our own workshop in Bolsward – the Netherlands. These cages can be made out of ten different types of insect netting with different mesh sizes, yarn thickness and weight. Also in terms of workmanship, there are many possibilities, such as a reinforcing band, zippers, eyelets, doors or locks. We create Netting Cages for indoor as well as outdoor use; for outdoor use we also deliver corresponding frames.

Cavea Pop-Up is a lightweight netting cage for a single plant. It is available in two different sizes and two variations. It is available with or without a window, so that you can see what happens inside the cage. Besides the Cavea Pop-Up is provided with a half-rounded zipper, just to open and close the netting cage. The quickest way to protect small plants from insects, butterflies, birds and other unwanted animals. This Cavea Pop Up is also widely used in entomology.

Botra Seedbag is the ideal tool for collecting seeds from plants. By simply applying the cover around the plant you prevent the seed from blowing away. At the bottom of the Botra Seedbag is a drawstring which you close around the stem of the plant. The material is a fine-grained polyester and therefore air-permeable. The seeds dry very well in this way and no seed is lost. After harvesting these bags are also used in the drying process and eventually coating of the seeds.

At the “Seed meets Technology” we demonstrate some features of these netting cages and additional products. We would be pleased to meet you there. Visit us at stand number 6 and Anton Hulsegge would be pleased to inform you about all the possibilities.
