Protective Covering Invented for Open Beverage Bottles (NPL-149)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is submitting this client’s idea, Bottle Netz, in the hopes of a good faith review.

It is not uncommon for open liquor and other beverage bottles to attract fruit flies and other flying or even crawling critters. Once infested, unfortunately, the remaining contents can’t be saved. That’s exactly why an inventor from Bonita Springs, Fla., decided to design a deterrent to such pest infestations.

He developed a prototype for the patent-pending BOTTLE NETZ to protect an open beverage bottle with a pour spout against fruit flies and other bugs. As such, it eliminates the need to dispose of partially filled wine, liquor or other bottles because of a fruit fly infestation. At the same time, it is durable, practical and easy to use. What’s more, this novel design is compact, lightweight and portable. Another important consideration is that its simple design minimizes production costs. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced.

The inventors work experience inspired the idea. “For 15 years I have worked as a bartender or bar manager and have had to discard many partially filled wine and liquor bottles because of contamination by fruit flies,” he said. “I came up with this idea to prevent this waste.”

The original design was submitted to the Naples office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
