Residential & Community Garden Crop Protection

DEER & CRITTER CONTROL

with Electric Fencing for Gardens

As the popularity and demand for fresh, locally grown produce increases, so too does the threat from deer and critters (i.e. raccoons, woodchucks, rabbits, skunks, and more). Whether you have a backyard garden or have been running a commercial CSA for years, electric garden fencing provides a fast, affordable, and easy-to-install solution for seasonal garden protection. Below are some helpful tips and material guidelines to get you started.

Residential & Community Garden Crop Protection

Residential and Commercial Crop Protection

Electrified garden net fences are effective at keeping unwanted pests out while also blending in so as not to interrupt the aesthetics of a well-planned garden. These fences are typically best suited for areas one acre or less in size and are very effective against woodchucks, raccoons, rabbits, and deer.

Electrification of Existing Fence

If you have an existing chicken or woven wire fence, you can deter predators from going through or climbing over it by adding two “scare” wires; one at 8” from the ground and another near the top of your fence. We recommend that you use the MaxiShock™cable due to its durability and conductivity. Also, use P-springs and twist-tights to keep the wires taut to prevent the electrified “scare” wires from grounding out on the woven wire.
