Telescopic Pond Net (2mm Mesh)
The Telescopic Pond Net (2mm Mesh) is a sturdy, well-constructed net that is perfect for pond-dipping to collect samples of aquatic life. The durable net is 30cm deep, giving you plenty of room for catching critters and is made from a 2mm woven mesh that is ideal for catching fish, amphibians, insects and more.
Excellent for Surveying Aquatic Ecosystems
Ponds, pools and small lakes are integral parts of our larger ecosystem, and surveying the animal diversity within them is an important way of assessing their overall health. The Telescopic Pond Net is resilient, lightweight and long-reaching, making it perfect for collecting accurate, representative samples of aquatic wildlife.
How Far Does the Telescopic Handle Extend?
The length of the handle is 82cm when collapsed, making it easy to transport and store. When extended to its full length the handle is an impressive 125cm long, giving you plenty of reach for catching aquatic life further from the shore.
A Fun Educational Tool
For many natural scientists, some of their most memorable and exciting encounters with wildlife as a child were around the edge of a pond, with a net in hand. It's a great way to introduce children to a wide range of plants, insects and amphibians, as well as explaining fascinating insect transformations or intricately balanced food chains.
Includes an Industrial Velcro Orange Collar
The bright orange collar is affixed to the head of the net with industrial Velcro, ensuring it wont come off during use but making it easy to remove for washing or replacement. The bright colouring of the net collar helps you to keep track of the precise location of the net when it's in the water.
What Is the Pond Net Designed For?
The Telescopic Pond Net is designed for pond dipping and is not suitable for dragging on the bottom of a river or pond. It's also not appropriate for sampling in dense aquatic vegetation.
