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.
NOTE: Dry conditions and wintertime usages—may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
