Deluxe Insect & Butterfly Net
This is a great professional-quality butterfly net for 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 a special 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: 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. Ages 12 and up.

My 13 year-old grandson needed a net to catch insects for his science class. Ordering was easy, the price is reasonable and we received the net in a timely manner. No complaints.

Everyone should have one of these in their home. They not only catch butterfly's but when something gets in the house that should not be there such as mice,lizards, snakes, moths, bats and other creatures, this is the perfect tool!! Very well made.

Very nice net. Love the telescoping handle. The net material is very lightweight and easy to see through.

This net is exactly what it claims to be. It is sturdy and very easy to collapse down. We got it to help my 3 year old catch butterflies and lightening bugs and it has held up well so far. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and would purchase it again!

This is a decent net. I am an entomology student and my professional net broke, so I ordered this one because quick shipping was an option and I had to go on a trip. It's definitely decent, but nothing more. It would be perfect for kids, not great enough for everyday professional use though.
Things I was disappointed with: the telescoping is a bit jerky, and I was surprised to find that once extended, parts of the net were really dirty...sort of like a dusty grime. It was fine once I cleaned it, but didn't exactly seem new. Also, the bag portion seems unnecessarily long, which I find a bit aggravating. The material won't stand up to long seasons of bug hunting either, but is fine for a summer or two.
Things I like: shipping was nearly immediate, very happy with that! The net can fold up quickly and easily, making it easy to carry in a backpack. Really convenient.
All in all, I'd recommend for your kids or to have an extra net if you're in a squeeze. I won't be using it for everyday professional collecting, but am happy to have it around! Pleased.Read More Reviews
