ExcludeNet exclusion netting is manufactured by Tek-Knit Industries in Montreal, Quebec. The netting is manufactured from high-density polyethylene yarn that’s made in the USA.

From Dale-Ila Riggs, farmer & owner of The Berry Patch, the domestic distributor of ExcludeNet:  “In 2014, our first year of exclusion netting use, we achieved 0.67% infestation over a ten-week harvest period. In 2015, we achieved 0.37% infestation over six weeks, and in 2016 and 2018 we achieved 0.00% infestation over an eight-week harvest period.
