- Electric fencing
- Wire fencing
Wire fencing is an alternate method to keep these animals at bay. It can be a meshed wire or welded wire―any one of these can be effective to get rid of the nuisance that the animals are creating, though these are more expensive than electric fencing. The wire can be made of synthetic material or a metal, though, again, the latter is far more expensive. Wire meshes of synthetic fiber do not spoil the beauty of your house, since they are almost invisible at times, but not durable at all. They need mending every other day, since the material is quite fragile.
Welded wire can certainly be used, and it is actually one of the most versatile products now. It has quite a few practical uses in addition to fencing. It is quite useful as it is durable and quite flexible to install. They also contribute in enhancing the beauty of the house, because they offer less visibility, thus making it unobtrusive. These wires are plastic coated and heavy-duty welded wires, which are galvanized before welding. The technology is such and it is designed in such a way that it provides flexibility, which as stated above, contributes to the ease of installation. The cost of maintenance is almost zero, thus making it an economical solution. Moreover, it can be easily installed to all kinds of fencing―be it posts, rails, stakes, tacks, or trees.
Some people also grow aromatic plants which attract humans but then act as repelling agents for animals, thus keeping them away in a very natural and toned-down way. Plants like lavender, mint or lemon, if planted around the house or garden, can definitely help in this way.
