Deer Fencing Options

deer fence

At Deer Busters, we’re proud to offer a variety of deer fencing options so that you can choose which best suits your budget and your needs. Three of the most common fencing materials include:

Polypropylene

Our award-winning  poly deer fencing is made from a polypropylene mesh material that is very lightweight but very durable (with breaking strengths of 500 lbs./sq.ft. to 950 lbs./sq.ft.). These fences are virtually invisible to deer and are rated to last 20 years or more. At Deer Busters, we offer two different kinds of fences: TENAX and Trident.

TENAX deer fencing features thick, rounded strands of plastic that are more invisible than flat strands and allow wind to flow through them, which makes the fencing durable during harsh weather.

Trident deer fencing features thick, semi-round strands of plastic that are reinforced at the bottom with a tightly woven mesh. This mesh helps protect against smaller critters and rodents by making it harder to chew through.

Metal

If you live on a property inhabited with many deer, metal fencing may be the way to go. This fencing is stronger than polypropylene material and is durable against deer, rodents, critters, weather, and UV rays. We offer three kinds of metal fences: steel hex, welded wire, and fixed knot.

Steel hex deer fencing features a hexagonal pattern of 20-gauge galvanized wire that is twisted together to provide a highly resistant design. The wire is coated with a black PVC coating to strengthen it against natural elements and to help make it invisible to animals.

Welded wire deer fencing is presented in a rectangular design and is made from 14-gauge welded wire. It is also coated with a black PVC coating and is resistant to chewing or tearing.

Fixed knot deer fencing is created with 12.5-gauge steel that is class 3 galvanized (the highest galvanized rating available). This makes it very resistant to corrosion and natural elements. It also means it’s the strongest metal fencing available.

Electric Baited

Electric fences are electrically charged wire fences. They can be charged using solar energizers, plug-in energizers, or battery energizers and are often fitted with deer baits to lure deer to the area. Once a deer touches the bait, it receives a small shock, which discourages them from coming back and gives your property protection.

Homemade Bird Repellents

While many birds are beautifully colored and fun to watch, they can also be menaces when it comes to your property. They can destroy flowers, fruits, and berries in your garden, roost on your windows or rafters, or nest in inconvenient spots. There are many natural ways to deter birds from your home and garden – our deer fencing experts have listed some that can be easily made or bought:

Sprays

There are many simple homemade sprays you can make to spray on both your plants and around areas where birds are found:

Mix crushed red pepper, apple cider vinegar, and water.

Mix crushed cloves with water.

Mix chili peppers with water, then ferment in the sun for a week and add white or red vinegar.

Mix cayenne pepper with water.

Holographic Tape

Hang strips of holographic tape (or shiny things like cassette tape or tinsel) from tree branches and on bushes. The bright reflection of it will make birds think it’s fire and they’ll stay away.

Steel Spikes

If you have a problem with birds on your roof or gutters, install strips of steel spikes – the spikes make it too sharp for birds to land on the area.

Ultrasonic Frequencies

Ultrasonic devices are good for birds and other pests like rabbits, raccoons, rats, squirrels, and more. They emit a high-pitched frequency that scares away pests but can’t be heard by human ears.

Gels

Bird gels are used on window sills, rafters, ledges, and other places where birds tend to hang out. Simply spread some gel on the area and when a bird lands, it won’t like the consistency and probably won’t return.

Scarecrows

One of the oldest tricks, scarecrows will often scare birds away from the area. Make your own by dressing pillows or bales of hay with old clothing to make them look like a person.

Fake Animals

Inflatable or plastic animals like owls, snakes, cats, and other animals can be strategically placed in your yard in order to scare birds away. Make your own or find one that’s high-quality.

Noisemakers

Birds don’t like noise, so create something that will scare them – hang a string of aluminum cans, wind chimes, or a string aluminum pie plates together. Get creative!

The Best Accessories for Your Deer Fence

deer fence accessories

At Deer Busters, we know that our award-winning poly deer fencing is enough to keep pesky deer and other animals out of your yard, but we believe there’s always a way to make it better – with accessories! We carry an array of deer fencing accessories to help you customize your fence and add a little extra strength or protection.

Drive Caps and Post Drivers

If you’re installing a heavy line post using our ground sleeve system, you’re going to need a drive cap to safely pound the sleeve into the ground. We have drive caps available for 1 3/8″ posts and 1 5/8″ posts. We also have a spring-loaded post driver and a gas-powered post driver to make your post installation much easier.

Ground Stakes

When it comes to ground stakes, we have kinked ground stakes and rebar ground stakes available. These ground stakes will help keep your deer fencing in place and make installation smoother.

Self-Locking Ties

Use our self-locking ties (available in 8″ and 14″) to make sure your monofilament wire is secure. Once you feed your wire through your connection sleeve, around the post, and back through your connection sleeve, criss-cross our ties around the wire to hold it in place.

Deer Fence Tensioning

To keep your deer fence taut and strong, we recommend using tension wire (such as our monofilament wire in 8-gauge or 12-gauge) in between your posts. We also offer steel core tensioning wire, which is the highest strength wire available. It comes in 333′, 666′, 1000′, and 3000′ orders. To make your installation easier, we offer tensioning kits and tools like the Hog Ringer to attach your fencing to your tension wire.

Replacement Parts

If you’re looking for a new post, post caps, drop rods, anchors, extenders, or ground sleeves, we carry replacement parts in varieties.

Chew-Proof Rodent Fence

While deer probably won’t try to chew through your fencing, other animals (like rodents) may. That’s why we carry our chew-proof rodent fence. Simply attach it to the bottom of your deer fencing and you’ll have an easy way to keep gnawing critters out of your yard.
