    Great net!

  • We purchased one of these a year ago, and just purchased and received two more. We love them. Sturdy and the double telescoping feature is very convenient. Definitely great product and value. And yes, we use it a lot...to catch carpenter bees around our log home!
    Nice Net

  • Looks like a great net that should work well, but have not had opportunity to use it yet. Great service and speedy delivery. Placing orders is very simple and straight-forward process.
    Such a good tool

  • I've just started taking a census of butterflies in our area, and I needed a net to help me identify them. This one is great. It's sturdy, well made, and easy to handle. I netted my first skipper with it, and the little guy was none the worse for wear when I released him.

      Deluxe Insect & Butterfly Net

      Create an experience they'll enjoy and always remember by heading outdoors to find and collect the butterflies, insects, and bugs for your upcoming unit study. You'll learn which creatures inhabit your backyard or neighborhood park, as well as their mode of locomotion. Do they flutter, fly in straight paths, hover over flowers, or march with purpose? Your adventure - and biology education - is set to begin!

      This Deluxe Insect & Butterfly Net is perfect for experienced collectors, as well as students. The soft collecting bag and extra-long handle make it suitable for catching the most delicate butterfly or other insects, even at a distance. This net features a 13"-diameter, 30"-deep, open-shaped net bag with muslin banding at the top, a rugged folding steel net ring, and telescoping aluminum handle that extends from 18" up to 40" long. The entire butterfly net folds and collapses to just 18" long and 5" wide to fit in any pack.

      How to use the bug net: When trying to capture an individual butterfly with a net, move slowly until you are in range. Position the net under the insect, then swing it upward and turn the handle so that it flips over and the captured insect cannot escape. Bring the butterfly net down to the ground and raise the end of it so that the insect can fly to the closed top, making it easier to get into another container.

      Imagine the fun you'll have creating a beautiful display using the Net, the tools included in the Basic Insect Collecting Kit, and mounting them to share with friends in the Insect Exhibit Case,
