With easy-to-use Maggot Barriers you can protect your fruit from the time they are fruitlets until they are ready to be picked without using traps or insecticides. This simple solution provides a low-tech nylon barrier that simply slips on and stretches to fit as your fruit grows. Maggot Barriers replace those irksome double plastic and brown bags. The breathable nylon of these barriers also serves to prevent mildew and mold from forming on the fruit. While originally designed for use in trees to protect fruit, Maggot Barrier has been shown to be effective on many vegetable crops as well. This product is proudly made in the USA.
