Beehive Protection––ElectroNet® and ElectroNet® Plus 9/35/12 Electric Netting
It's also available as a Pos/Neg fence for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
- 9 horizontal strands (8 conductive)
- 35 in. tall
- Vertical struts every 12 in.
- ElectroNet - Posts (built-in) every 12.5 ft., .50" dia.
- ElectroNet Plus - Posts (built-in) every 6.8 ft., .50" dia.
- Post spikes (SS or DS): .26" dia., 6" long.
ElectroNet Plus 9/35/12 (with extra line posts)
- Identical to ElectroNet, but to help with sagging, we added posts to shorten the distance between posts 6.8 ft (vs 12.5 ft for standard ElectroNet). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence.
ElectroNet 9/35/12 (with drivable posts-DP)
- Drivable posts can be pounded in with a dead-blow hammer or mallet.
- .75" dia post with fiberglass cables for added support.
- Brown drive-cap to easily determine which posts are drivable.
- Single spike (only) with a spike stop for support when inserting post.
Because it's so easy to use and adapts readily to most situations, netting has become the way to protect hives from bears, wildlife, livestock (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs) and feral hogs.
If used with care, Premier's nets can last 10 grazing seasons. Do not allow rodents to build nests in the fence when stored.
To InstallThe same “unroll and then unfold” process applies to all electrified nets. Minimal strength or skill needed (and no tools). Extra supports such as FiberTuff™ step-in posts are useful at corners, curves and ends. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
Even for new users, it takes less than 10 minutes to go from out-of-the-box netting to installed fence. And it’s durable! Nets last over 10 seasons if used and stored properly. (Its mortal enemy is errant lawn mowers!)

How To Purchase
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: For a 200 ft fence line, order one 164 ft net and one 82 ft net. Or two 100 ft rolls of Plus net.)
- Choose support posts for corners, curves and ends.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and a fence tester.
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.
