Anti-insect Systems

ANTI-INSECT SYSTEMS: The real “cancer” of orchards are insects such as the Drosophila Suzukii, the so-called “fruit fly”, that has laid siege to European orchards in the last few years striking different species of fruit and Carpocapsa, a little butterfly or moth, lethal for apple trees, which is pink larvae with brown head penetrate fruit while still green, digging out tunnels until reaching the seeds. Another dangerous insect, the Asian stink bug coming from Asia. We have probably already bumped into this bug without distinguishing it from homegrown species; albeit smaller, it reproduces with alacrity and risks becoming a threat to coming harvests.

FIXING SYSTEMS
ROLL: The system consists in rolling and fixing the net directly on head transversal cable. In this way covering results aligned with head piles and is ready for eventual future anti-insect closures
MULTI-RING: The system consists in fixing the net on head transversal cable wit snap-hooks in several points. Usually it is used in covering with distance between rows wider than 5mt or on 3rows system. This fixing is ready for eventual future anti-insect closures.
FRONTABLE TUBE: With this system a tube pair is installed on head piles, lifting the net two further meters from head piles. On tubes edges a transversal cable is installed to which net will be fixed. With this system we offer a better protection to last plants of the rows, near head piles. This fixing is ready for eventual future anti-insect closures.
PATIO: The system consists of a horizontal tube joining head pile to an additional pile added near to the anchorage. On tubes edges a transversal cable is installed to which net will be fixed. With this system we offer a better protection to last plants of the rows, near head piles. This fixing is ready for eventual future anti-insect closures.
TUNNEL ON HEAD STREET: In this fixing system net is laid over head street and fixed on a second transversal row of head piles. The system allows an optimal protection on the whole orchard and is ready for eventual future closures with sides and frontal net for insect protection.

CLOSING SYSTEMS
KALAMITA: The Kalamita system is used to equip an orchard, with already installed multi-functional frontal net, so that insects – especially the Halyomorpha Halis (Asian stink bug) – cannot enter.
WRAPPING TUBE: An anti-insect net is laid from the top of the posts down to the soil, placed directly on anchor cables.
SIMPLE FRONTAL CLOSURE: An anti-insect net is laid from the top of the posts down to the soil, placed directly on anchor cables.
SIDE CLOSURE: Side closures, together with frontal one, grants the total closure of the system to protect crops from animals and especially insects attack, that may severely harm production.
