The advantages of insect net greenhous mesh on carrots:
1) Reduce the amount of sparseness. Carrot flies will operate due to odor. They are most active during the day, so it is best to cover at night.
2) For a single row of carrots, vertical obstacles are a good idea, because the fly does not travel more than 40 cm from the ground.
3) Covering with grass clippings can make it more difficult for female flies to lay eggs in cracks in the soil. Do not leave the infected carrots in the soil for overwintering, because the pests will continue to survive in winter to prepare for the next carrot planting.
4) Avoid planting related plants such as parsnips and celery near carrots, as they will also attract carrot flies.
