The Ward's beating net combo is a terrific way to start collecting from heavy brush or confined spaces. All the Ward's insect nets utilize a component system of handle, ring and net so you can easily upgrade or replace worn parts. The beating net utilizes the aluminum handle with a rubberized grip. This handle is hollow to reduce weight, but not think enough to easily bend or break.
The 36 in handle length is easy to maneuver at a distance, or working closer to your body. The 12 inch steel ring connects using a Screw-on mount providing a very rigid connection between the net and the handle. The kit also includes the sweeping net. The net bag is a full length 76 cm, but only the last 22 cm is netting. This partial net will allow you to view captured insects with a closed bag, but reduce the risk of the netting being torn on small branches.
