Anti-insect nets

Description

This practice developed by the French initially against the damage caused by codling moths (C. Pomonella) has also proven effective against other insects (e.g. the Halyomorpha halys, stink bug and the Drosophila suzukii, fruit fly). It consists of covering the orchard with a finer mesh net than the classic anti-hail net in order to isolate the plants from external attacks by insects (codling moths in particular). Two solutions have been studied: in the first single-row solution, each row is covered by a net; in the second single-block solution, the entire plot is covered by a single structure.
