Wildlife Friendly Bird Netting has a mesh size of less than 5mm. Bird netting with a mesh size larger than 10mm is a risk for animals
to be easily caught in, and responsible for the deaths of many bats, birds, possums, snakes, and other wildlife.
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals laws propose all household fruit netting: "must-have mesh size of 5mm x 5mm or less at full stretch,
and have a strand diameter of no less than 500 microns". The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) said if
netting was not used in the correct manner it could pose a serious risk to animals such as flying foxes, birds, possums, and even
snakes. It said animals could die from strangulation, blood loss, shock, or dehydration.
Victoria's backyard blitz could mean any person found using illegal netting could be fined $330, and a person selling, or advertising illegal netting fined $660. New regulations for netting commence 1st September 2021.
The rule of thumb (finger) is to choose a netting that you cannot poke your finger through
