Deer QuikFence® 5/60/12 Electric Netting
- 5 horizontal strands
- 60 in. tall
- String verticals every 12 in.
- Posts (built-in) every 12.5 ft., .75" dia.
- Post spikes (DS): .31" dia., 7" long.
Very easy to install!So much so that it surprises new users. The “install process” is the same as for all other netting fences: unroll, unfold, insert the posts, hand-tension, etc. To remove just reverse the steps.
Points to consider…Deer are creatures of habit—when breaking a habit (such as visiting a garden or tree planting) the deterrent must be strong. To accomplish this:
- Deer have a high internal resistance. So use an energizer that produces a strong, high output, high voltage pulse.
- Make sure the fence is always properly energized. Setting up the fence and installing the energizer a day or so later may seriously reduce its effectiveness.
- Bait the fence so deer are encouraged to touch the fence and thus receive a painful, memorable shock.
- If using a solar energizer, make sure it is facing due south—to take advantage of the most available sunlight. Never set the energizer in the shade.
Note: Deer, like goats, have high internal resistance because they have long thin legs, their hair is hollow, and their hooves are hard and dry. So it’s wise to use a “wide-impedance” fence energizer that is specifically designed for high resistance animals.
If used with care, these nets will last up to 10 years.
To purchase QuikFence…
- Measure the proposed fence line.
- Calculate feet of net that needed. Example: A 150 ft fence line requires one 100 ft net, one 50 ft net.
- Count up the support posts for corners or ends. 6 ft steel T posts are advised though 6 ft 11/16" FiberRods also work. Both are available from Premier.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and a fence tester.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
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.
