Anti-Deer Fence (2D Scented 2-Strand)
Low-cost. Simple—just 2 strands of energized rope or tape with scent caps baited with apple scent. They are tied to the lower strand to attract deer to smell the cap, receive a shock and to thereby imprint them with pain and fear.
Works best if installed before the trees are planted--as this trains the local deer to stay out.
As low as 28¢ per ft.
Points to consider
- Deer are more likely to go under or over this fence than netting or 3D fences.
- Easy to keep free of vegetation.
Drive posts. Attach insulators/clips. Insert and tension rope and/or tape. Attach scent caps. Bait caps. Electrify. Check voltage (should be above 3500).
You also need an energizer for this fence. Please refer to the Energizer section of our website to determine your needs.
We offer many fences to fit your situation, including different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Questions? Call our fence consultants at
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
