Customer Reviews:

Good value, works well
by Mike Milne in the United Kingdom (2013-08-19)

I use this for removing insects that have become trapped in my conservatory. The handle is long enough so that I can reach the roof, and the hoop is wide enough to keep the net well clear of the insect, and deep enough so that once inside, you can flip the net closed and transfer the insect to the outside world.

It takes a little practice to get the right flowing movement to get the insect into the net. And at this price, don't expect a rugged piece of equipment that will survive multiple field trips - it's fine for home & garden use, but probably not robust enough for a serious entomologist!
