*Premier Top Seller*
If you line in an area where you have to contend with wild animals invading your yard, then you may want to look at electric fence as an option – providing there is no local restriction against its use. This is a product often used by ranchers.
However, I know someone who used it quite effectively for another purpose. He had a raccoon problem. These persistent creatures of the night invaded his backyard every single night like clockwork, and they wreaked havoc. They feed on grubs, so the dig up the yard, making holes all across the yard. Then they poop everywhere. It is bad enough that they use the entire backyard or garden as a bathroom, but if you have a swimming pool, beware. Read this post here, and you will find out more about raccoons and swimming pools. The author, and site creator, discusses his personal problem with raccoons pooping in the swimming pool. He used a series of motion activated sprinklers to repel raccoons from his backyard. The motion sprinkler proved to be a pretty effective raccoon repellent. I’m not exactly sure why, but raccoons love to crap in the swimming pool. After observing this phenomenon for sometime, I am curious as to whether they use the pool to clean themselves.
Now, getting back to the electric fence idea. The beauty of these things is that they can be solar charges – like this one. As I was saying, I know someone who bought one of these bad boys, not because he was a cattle rancher, but to use as a raccoon deterrent. He realized that if this solar charged electric fence can keep goats and cattle in, it can also quite effectively get rid of raccoons by keeping them out.
This is a highly conductive ready-made 164 ft fence with ten horizontal string (9 of them are conductive). The Premier ElectroStop fence is used to stay sheep, goats, guard dogs in whereas keeping out stray dogs, raccoons, coyotes, and other pests and predators. This fence is also used to keep bear off from bee hives. It is even suitable for cattle. However, this fence is not designed for use with poultry. If you are looking for a poultry fence, go here The fence is 42″ tall installed and has large 12 inch plastic vertical struts. The plastic vertical struts reduce the fence sagging as compared with string verticals, and they help to prevent the fence from tangling and bunching when putting in and removing the fence. The black and white colours provide 24/7 visibility to each humans and animals against lightweight and dark backgrounds. ElectroStop® includes a tinned copper conductor, which makes the fence 10 times additional conductive than fences with solely stainless-steel conductors. It has 38 ohms of resistance per 1,00zero feet, as compared to 380 ohms of resistance on fences with solely stainless-steel conductors. This allows multiple rolls of netting to be connected along and electrified effectively. PVC posts(.sixty” diameter)are engineered into the mesh every 12.five’ with half-dozen” single spike at the bottom that insert into the ground. The manufacturer advocates using extra support posts at ends and corners, like Premier’s 42″ FiberTuff posts (Item 208054) , additionally found on Amazon. FENCE MUST BE PROPERLY ENERGIZED TO BE EFFECTIVE. Energizer isn’t included. Use only low or wide impedance energizers. Recommend approximately .twenty five joule of energizer per roll of fence. For optimum results, we tend to recommend using a Premier Solar or AC/DC energizer that matches your specific desires. Use only low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizers. Warning! Do NOT use continuous current energizers with electric netting.
