FENCES TO KEEP OUT LIVESTOCK (HORSES, CATTLE, SHEEP, GOATS, ETC.)

Electric fences are mostly used to keep in livestock, so keeping them out of your garden or other places with an electric fence is really easy. Just string one or two charged electric fence wires on fiberglass posts at heights right for your target animal.(Free Installation instructions for such a fence are available on this website.)

FENCES TO KEEP OUT LOW ANIMALS (SNAKES, OTTERS, ETC.)

Snakes and otters don’t often want to invade gardens, but the same sneaky tactic that will keep them out of gardens will keep them out of many other places. Here’s how it works: Level the ground along which the fence will run until it is really flat. Lay down a weed barrier over the fence line and make that flat. Then lay down a foot-wide roll of galvanized small-mesh chicken wire all around the garden and stake it down with ground stakes. Make sure the mesh is laying really flat and connect it to the ground terminal on your charger. Next, clip insulators onto short fiberglass posts (one insulator per post), insert the posts into the ground or other surface along the fence line, and hang a metal electric fence wire from the insulators. Make the wire so low that your target snake or otter will have to touch the wire to enter the garden or other protected area. Connect the wire to the positive terminal on your charger and turn the charger on. This same system will work equally well using boat railings, building floors, or flat boards as the base for the small-mesh chicken wire. You may need to drill holes for the little posts, but of course in these latter cases no weed barrier is needed. Please note that free installation instructions for this fence are available on this website.

FENCES TO KEEP OUT BEAVERS

Don’t try to fence out beavers while they are in the water. They’re much too good at water sports. Instead, fence them out of whatever you want to keep them away from when they’re on land. That’s not hard and does not require a powerful charger. Note that you can find installation instructions for this kind of fence available free on this website. So what would you like to do?
