This NHBS Pond Dipping Kit contains everything you need to collect freshwater aquatic life in one easy package. It includes an economical and lightweight net that is ideal for students or anyone wanting a high quality, but affordable net.
The frame is made onsite in our workshop, using lightweight aluminium and has two comfortable foam grips on the handle. The net bag is made from 1mm polyester mesh and attaches to the frame using strong velcro. This means that it can easily be removed for washing or replacement. Please note that this net is designed for pond dipping and is not suitable for dragging on the bottom of a pond or for sampling dense vegetation.
The heavy duty white plastic tray is ideal for sorting through your catch. You can pick up any tiny creatures safely and easily using the plastic pipette, use the Bug Viewer to take a closer look at a specimen through the magnifying lid and then store your specimens in the watertight, screw-top sampling pots - just remember to put them back in the pond when you have finished.
Finally, follow the key on the Freshwater Name Trail chart to find out exactly what is wriggling in the bottom of your net. This easy to use chart covers the most commonly found freshwater invertebrates and is fully laminated so it will not matter if you accidentally drop it in the pond.
