Ultimate Cicada & Locust Netting

Protect your plants and trees against this summer’s historic swarm!

Cicadas (also known as locusts) emerge by the billions in 13- and 17-year cycles. In 2024, these cycles will coincide, resulting in the largest emergence since 1803 – when Thomas Jefferson was president!

Female cicadas lay eggs in tree branches, slicing slits directly into the plant. THIS CAN BE CATASTROPHIC FOR YOUNG TREES! Protect your investment today! Our Ultimate Cicada & Locust Netting keeps these pests from getting to your branches, but allows enough sunlight to get through to keep your trees healthy.

For custom finished sizes with edging and grommets, please email us at info@shadeclothstore.com or call us at 1-866-727-6658.

Shipping – Just $12.99 for your entire order.  Fast, dependable shipping via UPS.



Our Ultimate Cicada & Locust Netting provides protection against this summer’s historic swarm!

The professionals on our sewing production team can customize nets for you with a quick turnaround time. We use #4 brass grommets and 2 3/4″ reinforcement tape. Please install using all grommets – not just the corners. The taped edges are double stitched for extra holding power. Our knitted shade cloth is made from 100% UV stabilized polyethylene. Its unique construction will not unravel. Its light weight and durability make it a superior choice for cicada & locust protection.

  • Quality – Our nets are manufactured to exact specifications featuring tough, ravel resistant construction. Our binding is a seat-belt like material and is stitched to the entire perimeter of your shade cloth at no additional cost. Brass grommets are placed every 2 feet.
  • Price – There are no hidden charges for grommets, binding, fabrication or custom sizes. Call us toll free at 1-866-727-6658 for a custom quote.

How should we install Ultimate Cicada & Locust Netting?

Our material does not have much stretch to it, especially along the edges of finished panels. Therefore, we recommend installing it using the grommets along all four sides and atop a structure to minimize stress. Do not install panels using the corners only.

Excessive stress on the netting can cause the grommets to pop out of the finished edges. Please do not install with excessive tension.

You should also avoid installation that can cause abrasions along the interior of the netting (e.g. steel cables). Improper installation will void any warranty/guarantee on the product.
