How to Protect Trees and Shrubs During the 17-Year Cicada Outbreak this Spring

This spring you can expect the largest Cicada Outbreak in 17 years throughout the months of May through June. This emergence of Brood X, 17-year cicadas leaves young trees vulnerable to damage. Once the ground level reaches 64 degrees F, the Cicadas will emerge searching for trees and shrubs to latch onto and lay their eggs beneath the bark of twigs and branches. The egg laying process has the potential to cause significant damage to young trees to the point that they can die.

Watch this video for installation instructions and to learn how Cicada Control Netting from Industrial Netting can protect your property during the largest outbreak in 17-years.

Product Characteristics of Square and Diamond Mesh

Joint Structure

Although both diamond netting and square netting are extruded, the processes used to produce the products result in quite different product characteristics, which may be important in some applications. Diamond netting is produced with the strands in each direction overlaying each other. The joint structure of the product can be described as a strand over another strand. The overall thickness of the product will essentially be twice the thickness of each strand, although there may be some melding of the strands at the joint. Normally, the strands in each direction are produced uniformly, and the product looks the same from one side of the material as the other. This type of netting is marketed as “bi-planar”, as both sides are structurally the same, the strands forming a plane or channel along the net. Read more ›

Although all of these processes produce materials with holes, each process has its own nomenclature for defining what’s there (i.e. strands, joints, etc.) and what’s not there (holes). The same is true for the extrusion process.

The extrusion process is a continuous process, which involves Read more ›
