Abstract

Screens can exclude certain pests from greenhouses and therefore reduce the need for pesticides on greenhouse crops. They can perhaps also be used to create a small production area for biological control organisms within the greenhouse. When selecting a screen for either use, the pore size in the material is an important factor.
