Net Bags

Catching specimens generally requires a good trap or a good net.

All of our nets can be considered as longer-term “keepers”. When parts wear out, they can be replaced. Definitely not inexpensive, but good value for the money.


Most nets are in three parts:

1. handles

2. rings or frames

3. net bags


Net bags come in a number of colours: black, white and khaki.

Generally, if you look into the bag for your specimens, choose a white bag. Easy to see. Downside: white shows “ick” faster. Think squashed bugs, bug poop etc.

If you look through the bag to identify something caught, a black bag is usually preferred. Hides “ick” very well.

Khaki blends with the plant life better. If you are a slow-moving catcher, this just might be the bag for you. “Ick” hiding ability moderate.


Nets also come in two lengths:  short and long.  The actual length is dependent on the diameter.


Tropic bags have a bottomless inner liner as an aid to trapping insects.  Harder for your catch to escape.  Tropic bags are only available in 65cm diameter (ca. 25.5").  All 65cm bags are tropic bags.
