Deluxe Insect & Butterfly Net

Item# BE-NETDLX2

This Deluxe Insect & Butterfly Net is perfect practiced collectors as well as students! The soft collecting bag and extra-long handle make it suitable for catching the most delicate butterfly or other insect 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.

Such a good tool Review by
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.
Cheap plastic, will break easily Review by
My net looked okay, if a bit too light in weight, when it first arrived. Before taking it anywhere, I took a couple practice swings--not even hard ones--and the plastic holding the net to the body cracked.

My advice: make your own net. This item is a real disappointment.

[HST adds: we are sorry to hear that your net broke. We are committed to delighting our customers, if a replacement is needed for a damaged or defective item please contact customer service at 800-860-6272.]
Insect net Review by
I really love the versatility of the net and its telescoping handle. It has held up very well, there was a small problem with the glue coming apart in the telescoping sections, the problem was easily fixed. I have enjoyed the net greatly, especially for travel.
Deluxe insect and butterfly net Review by
This product was perfect for my niece who loves entomology. She was happy with the softness of the net, so it would not hurt butterflies' wings.
Great product Review by
As an amateur insect collector, I thoroughly enjoy using this net. It's light weight, easy to assemble, compact once disassembled and built sturdy enough for my uses. I would recommend this product to anyone starting out in the insect collecting hobby.
