Rated 5 out of 5 by AllenRoad Excellent Blue Heron Net
I have a pond that is 20' x 10' and my Koi are now large enough to attract Blue Heron. I tried various things and nothing seemed to work so I ordered a 12' x 20', 2" netting to solve the problem. I didn't want to cover the full pond, so I cut the net into 4' sections and then ran fishing line through the outside of the net, so one side of the net was on land and I had large rocks to put on the edge of the net, the other side of the net was over the pond so I pulled the fishing line tight and tied it off outside the pond. I now have a 3' net perimeter around my pond that is 6'' - 8'' off the surface of the water. I haven't seen a Blue Heron in over a month and I haven't lost any Koi. The center of my pond is completely open and also 2' deep and the edges of the pond are protected with the perimeter net.

I have tried other nets in past but when it snows, it would cover the net and stretch it to the point of ripping. hopefully this with the bigger holes it will work. looks like it should be ok for the leaves too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom302 Great product
Appears to be as advertised. Material appears strong and properrly knotted. Could use a few more and longer pegs to hold down net, but not a major issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coolmom So far so good
I bought this product because last summer a predator - most likely a raccoon - would come during the night and eat my fish. I have a very small pond (approx. 60 gal), but my fish are special to me! After trying many things (motion activated items, etc) I was down to 2 fish. I believe they survived by hiding under rock areas in the pond. My fish winter over inside. I bought this net and installed it before bringing my fish back outside. It was easy to cut to size and install, and so far they seem to be safe. Just two things: it was a little pricey as I had to buy netting that was much too large for my pond. Perhaps it could be offered in a smaller size. Also, ten stakes were barely enough for my small pond area. More stakes please!
