RaccoonNet® 4/18/12 Electric Netting
- 4 horizontal strands
- 18" tall installed.
- Vertical struts every 12 in.
- Line posts (built-in) every 12.5 ft.
- Posts: 0.51" dia.
Raccoons are notorious for their addiction to sweet corn in particular (and gardens in general). They can and do destroy months of work in a single night. And they seem to know exactly when the corn is ready for them (about a week before it’s ready for human consumption)!
Sweet corn growers have known for years that the best “raccoon-stopper” is an electric fence.
- RaccoonNet is unique in being a complete fence in each roll.
- Most can install a 100 ft roll in 5 minutes.
- Just attach a suitable energizer and you have a reliable raccoon barrier.
- All posts are built into each roll. Just push the posts in by hand. The posts are strong enough for ends and most corners. (If you buy net as a kit, extra support posts for corners are included.)

To purchase RaccoonNet
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: A 150 ft fence requires one 100 ft net and one 50 ft net.) Or you may choose to order two 100 ft nets instead.
- Choose either:
- Netting Only—does not include accessories.
- Net and Energizer Kits.
Protects: Sweet corn, Silage "tubes" and Gardens.
Keeps out: Raccoons.
Note: The "See More Photos" above right (except the one with the bales) were prototypes. We've now modified the design. The lowest live strand is now only 4 in. above the soil (instead of 6 in.) to prevent small raccoons from crawling through it. And we removed 1 horizontal strand. The net height is thus shorter by 2 inches.
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.
