Hi there -- I'm interested in purchasing one of your triple-highs, but it would be for use in the Neotropics, so I'd either need to ship everything to Belize or buy it without poles and reconstruct it with stuff I can buy in-country. Do you have any thoughts on this, like whether shipping to Belize would be possible, whether I could reconstruct it using standard conduit, etc.? Thanks in advance for your help with this!
Hello! You cannot use standard conduit as it uses connectors that the net carriers would get hung up on. Our poles are built in-house and are seamless when assembled, so that carriers easily slide up and down. For shipping quotes, we ship all items internationally. Just start the checkout process and fill in your address and the shipping will be calcluated.
What is the pole anchor mentioned on your triple high nets? We have used rebar as pole anchor, Do you have a reccommended length?
We use 3/4'' black iron pipe; is does not rust as quickly as rebar. Once a year we just cut the mushroomed heads off of any that have suffered from extensive pounding. Probably ~3.3' is good (because it is often sold in 10' sections). The key is that the pole anchor must be the the fround firmly enough to allow the 3H pole to stand while you tie off guy ropes. This is critical if you are setting up by yourself. All mist net poles conduct electrictiy and should never be used around powerlines. Be aware when loading and unloading poles from vehicles as well as the actual trap site.
