Do I need netting when caging peppers

This year is the first time I've tried container gardening and I'm using the EarthTainers. I've never caged peppers in the ground before but the pictures I've seen of peppers in cages have convinced me that I ought to at least try it.

My only question now is whether I should use multiple levels of trellis netting too. Does anyone have any experience with that?

Sometimes I'll use small tomato cages on peppers just for convenience, but generally a stake will be sufficient for all but the heaviest bells. Can't imagine you'd need netting for support - though you might need it to keep the birds away.

Okay thanks. As you can tell, I'm a real beginner.
