In addition they do not oxid and they are not harmful. They have a great design, almost imperceptible. Deer fence is very resistent and it stands strong hits and high pressure. Also it cannot be chewed. Deer plastic fences are more flexible and workable than wire mesh, and they perfectly blend into the landscape so the vision of your garden is not altered.

– Look for the appropriate height and width.
– Consider add an inclination of 45-degree angle.
– Use high posts and add more fencing or additional wire to make it higher.
– An alternative to make the fence higher is to install a double barrier of fence. With this width deer would not jump.
– Blend the mesh at the bottom and anchor this portion to the ground so rabbits and racoons cannot dig under it. Grass will grow through the fence.
Another tip, is to use the deer fence together with a privacy netting so that the animals cannot see through the fence and they are in doubt about something threatening on the other side.

Deer behavior and habits
Deer are very territorial and humans are building streets, houses and farms right in their territory where they have been living free for years with consequent increasing conflicts.
They can cause important losses to farmers, because they like maize and soya beans. They also chew the surface of the trees, especially the tender and young parts. Moreover they love plants and flowers.
Keeping them away from the properties can be a hard work. Deer are very intelligent and they remember where the food is available. So they continue visiting the private gardens and farms.
The deer live in the temperate regions of the world. Hunting has led to the introduction of this animal into other habitats with disastrous consequences for the environment, so it has been listed among the 100 most invasive species.
In general deer are shy and try not to approach the human being, although in regions where they have not been subjected to intense hunting they may not distrust people so much.
Deer are most active during the twilight and dawn hours. These are the time of the day when they can more likely attack the properties because they need to eat and drink. When the nights are prolonged in winter they develop habits preferentially diurnal. At the end of the warm season, usually at the end of summer the season of zeal begins. During these months the males fight with other males. In this state, which makes the males more aggressive, they can even attack humans.
The only way to deter them is to build a physical barrier because sounds like alarms that are supposed to scare them, are expensive and they end up ignoring them. Deer netting is not a visual barrier but it is still perceptible for the animals, that recognize the fence and so avoid the area.
In conclusion, the most natural and cost-effective method to protect your properties is installing a deer fence.
