I am new to ADC and have pondered getting a net. Do you use them? If so, what brand?

I use them more for birds and bat removal. For mammals loose in a house or trailer house I set small cage traps along the walls in the suspected area that the animal may be. Once traps are set for the right sized animal I begin moving things around to disturb the animal then he runs into one of the traps in most cases.

Never used one. If I had one, I could be tempted to use it. I dont carry a catch pole for similar reasons.


Used to work for a company that would tell customers that I'll crawl under that deck and catch the skunk with a pole. Nope. Not gonna happen. We don't run our company that way, but I dont want to give anybody ideas.

I own a couple when I first got started. I'm still fairly green but have not had to use them yet. Not sure feel good about what to do with a full size raccoon in a net.

Thatís a cool net. First time Iíve seen one like that. I donít use dip nets, but Iíd sure get one like that if I did (or ever do).

Now thatís a great post. Informative. If I did that kind of work, Iíd definitely want to keep something like that in my bag of tricks. Sounds like a good idea for times that call for it.

Agreed. I can almost always grab the bat using something smaller, so carrying it as part of your ďbat search and recoverĒ gear is cumbersome. The positive feature of a net is that it covers a wider area during a retrieval. This helps when you need assurance that youíll get the bat with no funny business. Like two weeks ago when I was called to retrieve a bat hanging from the ceiling in a church during a funeral. Fortunately the bat was in a side hallway, but there was just zero room allowed for something to go wrong.

By the way, I canít tell from the net pic, but in my opinion the bat net must be on a telescoping pole. Keep looking if this one doesnít telescope.
