Electric fences – a powerful argument

From corn fields ruined by wild boar, fish ponds plundered by otters, or sheep taken by wolves – the topic of wild animal deterrent is not just a perennial issue, but also has additional, new, problematic facets.
The damages can quickly amount to thousands of euros. Deterrents usually
bring only time-limited success. Electric fences, in contrast, have been proven to provide safe, longterm protection.

The variety of products and their high quality alone do not lead to success. Therefore, the five following aspects must be considered for an installed electric fence:
  1. Create the best possible earthing
  2. Daily fence checks – not just with a voltage tester, also the entire fence system
  3. Pay attention to plants and branches lying over the wires and also wires sagging to the ground. They significantly reduce performance.
  4. For the same reason, the vegetation underneath the wires or netting must also be kept as short as possible
  5. The charging power of the battery should be checked at regular intervals.Replace it immediately if weakened
