Multi-Strand Rope or Tape (up to 3 strands)
The trade-off, when compared to netting, is that it's often more complicated and less effective for fewer species.
Most designs consist of up to 3 strands of rope, twine or tape suspended on FiberRods or FiberTuff posts.
Note: If the top strand is less than 18" above the soil, stronger posts for corners or ends are usually not necessary.
The strands are unwound, rewound and stored on windup reels.
Energize them with a suitable battery or plug-in energizer.
- Protect gardens and sweet corn from raccoons. Properly energized, just 2 wires will cause 95% of raccoons will leave your sweet corn alone.
- Repel Canada geese along shorelines.
- Deter herons from feeding in fish hatcheries and rearing ponds.
As low as 11¢ per ft. (Does not include energizer.)
