WANTED: Electric Fence For Small Bush Animals.

Just wundrin if anyone has made an electric fence to keep out Possums?

I 'm growing in tubs so the plants are 600mm/2 feet above ground. Beasties can easily climb up to the plants because the tubs are insulated for heat and the insulation is held in place by wire netting.

It's possible there may be Rats around too cos I 'm right in the bush.

Thanks!

great channel...i watch regularly...

rats were a real problem here for a while...then they just disappeared...

possums not so much....

however, i have made quite a few so, small mesh wire, isolated, stand offs at least on top... 1.2 m in height if no over hanging trees...or anything they can launch from...

depending on your situation a small transistor radio left on does wonders...and there is a spray you can use to keep animals away...

the active ingredient from above product is this: Denatonium-Benzoate

good luck...

I found that mesh on top of the ground is also a good idea. Stops the little buggers digging holes.
