US-Made Mist Nets

Our selection of USA mist nets are handmade by highly skilled net-makers here at Avinet, based in Portland, Maine, USA. Our nets are unparalleled in quality and are built to last. Please note that production time likely applies on most of these nets. During the busy season March-October, most of our nets are made to order. Please make note, especially to our Avian Research Supplies customers: these are not the nets sold historically by AFO. Please see our Japanese mist net section.

We at Avinet have a strong ethical mission to sell mist nets only to those who are properly permitted to conduct scientific research on birds and bats. Our nets are strictly for research purposes and are not to be used by those who are not compliant with state and federal law. Please consult our FAQ here if you have questions about what we require for permits: https://www.avinet.com/en/faq/what-kind-permit-do-i-need-purchase-mist-nets
