WHY CHOOSE TRIDENT CORP DEER FENCE?


Trident Corp has been the leading supplier of deer fencing material in the United States for the last 20 years. You can purchase from us comfortably knowing you dealing with the industry leaders. 

Made right here in the United States, our poly fencing material has a real advantage when it comes to quality deer fencing.  Don't settle for the punched deer fencing sold by other retailers and manufactured overseas. This fencing is not nearly as strong or durable as a Trident Corp deer fence.

Some types of deer control fencing on the market claim to be strong enough to keep out deer. These products are folded and can be used to deter deer temporarily, but will not stop deer consistently. Be sure to choose a UV stabilized deer fence with a breaking load of at least 600 lbs/ sq. ft. 

When comparing products which seem similar, look first to the breaking strength of the fence. This is your best indicator of quality and longevity for your deer fence. Another good way to determine the strength of a deer fence is to check the weight. The lighter the fencing, the weaker the material. Trident corp deer fencing is available in breaking strengths far superior to the most commonly sold deer fence material readily available on the market today. 

Benefits of a Trident Corp Fence:

Invisiblity- Our fence uses a 2" x 2" mesh to allow it to disappear into your surroundings. Our deer fencing is unobtrusive to your eye, but provides superior protection from deer and other animals.

Strength- Trident corp deer fencing is stronger and will last longer than other deer fencing on the market. Rated to last up to 20 years with breaking strengths over 900 lbs. This fence is tough enough to withstand the hungriest deer.

Height- Deer fencing needs to be at least 7.5' tall to be truly effective. At this height, a deer will not try to jump the fencing unless they are spooked. Make sure to have a fence at least this tall. For extra protection, consider upgrading to an 8' fence. 

Installation- Our deer fencing is designed for easy installation. The system is set up as a removable fence and comes with complete instructions for a great finished result. Our knowledgable team is always available to help out with tough spots or tricky installation questions, so be sure to give us a call at 1-888-422-3337 if you need help!

Longevity- Trident corp deer fence is designed to last for many years out in the field. The stronger the fence, the longer it will last. Our fencing has the longest expected life span of any poly deer fencing available.

Trident corp deer fencing is the best deer fencing available, make sure you are purchasing from the best for your next deer fencing job!

Celebrating National Ag Week 2017
20 March, 2017

Agriculture: Food For Life

 

Purpose

The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) is an organization uniquely composed of leaders in the agriculture, food and fiber communities dedicated to increasing the public awareness of agriculture's vital role in our society. The Agriculture Council of America and the National Ag Day program was started in 1973. (AgDay.org)

Why We Care About Agriculture

It's important for Americans to understand how our food goes from being in the ground to on our plate; which is why Deerbusters is celebrating National Ag Week on March 19-25, 2017 and National Ag Day on March 21, 2017. Farmers and home growers know that this is more than a hobby; it's a way of living. In addition to giving our families fresh fruits and vegetables, we must spread the word that agriculture is vital to our economy.

Manage Gardens, Vineyards and Home Orchards

Gardeners take great pride in their gardens; and for obvious reasons! Gardening is a skill that takes years to master, from trial and error mistakes; and even more years to maintain on a seasonal basis. But, the reward is fresh fruits and vegetables that can supply a family of four for enough organic goods for one month! To help gardeners manage gardens, and farmers with farm management, Deerbusters suggests installing a garden fence. 

TridentCorp Deer Fence2 (600x400)Deer have poor vision (20/200) and even poorer vertical vision. For this reason, deer will not attempt to jump a fence [unless they are being chased] without first walking around the fence, or trying to dig underneath the fence. 

Deerbusters Deer Fence is also successful in keeping out deer from vineyards and home orchards.

“When deer are getting into vineyards and a deer fence is installed a deer will first push against the fence to test it and then put their noses to the ground in an attempt to go under, Deerbusters Office Manager, Martin Havrilla explains. “It’s important to have the fence all the way to the ground and properly staked to keep the deer from getting in underneath. Once they’ve pushed the fence and tried to go under it, they will simply walk along the fence line until they either find an entry point or end up at a new food source.”

“We also provide bird nets, as well as well as 1 ¾ inch mesh size fencing, which cuts back on browsing for any size vineyard, nursery or garden center.”

 

donald-spoffard.jpgThis National Ag Day, we wish to give thanks to our hardworking farmers and gardeners who give us healthy organic food options. If you are a new gardener, install a deer fence to protect crops. Contact Deerbusters.com to help you find the right fence for your yard.

For light deer pressure, we recommend that gardeners and farmers install a poly deer fence. Don't let the plastic fool you; this durable plastic fence will stop deer from entering gardens and halt digging rodents with an added reinforced bottom edge.  

If deer pressure is higher, and chewing and digging is a concern, go with a virtually invisible metal fence available in Steel Hex, Welded Wire or Fixed Knot. 


Deer Fences vs. Animal Fences
07 March, 2017

At Trident/Deer Busters, we’re known for our award-winning deer fences, but we also sell animal fences for dogs, cats, and rodents. There are some differences between the two types – while some keep animals out, others keep animals in. All, however, are virtually invisible, long-lasting, and require little maintenance.

Deer Fences

Deer like to jump, which is why our deer fences come in a variety of heights up to 8 feet tall, so even the largest or most agile deer can’t get over them. Our deer fences are either built from heavy-duty polypropylene plastic or steel. Both materials are highly durable to sustain the strength of deer.

Deer are often found near wooded areas or fields, and properties near these areas tend to have a lot of land. This means that in order to protect all of your land from deer, you’re going to need a long fence. At Deer Busters, we understand this, which is why our deer fences are available in lengths up to 330 feet.

Animal Fences

While deer fences are used to keep deer out, animal fences are often used by property owners to keep their animalsin.

Cat Fences

Since you can rarely train a cat to stay within property lines, having an outdoor cat can be difficult. With a cat fence, however, you won’t have to worry about your cat wandering away. Our cat fence systems come in heights of 6 feet or 7 1/2 feet and a length of 100 feet. Our cat fences are unique, however. While they’re made from the same polypropylene material as our deer fences, our cat fences feature an inward-facing overhang so that your cat can’t climb up and over the fence. We also have a conversion system that can turn your current fence into a cat fence.

Dog Fences

Since dogs can’t climb like cats can, our dog fences are built like our deer fences, but smaller. Available in polypropylene or steel and in a variety of strengths, you can choose to have your fence extend 4 feet or 5 feet high and up to 330 feet long.

Rodent Fences

Our rodent fencing is available in rolls so you can attach it to the bottom of your deer, dog, or cat fence. These fences are made from steel and have a smaller-diameter webbing that is chew-resistant and keeps even the smallest rodents out of your yard or property.

No matter what type of animal you’re trying to keep out of (or in) your yard, we can help. If you have any questions, please feel free to call one of our experts.


Don't Give in to the Doe Eyes. Deer Aren't So Innocent
07 February, 2017

If you live in suburban and rural settings, you most likely see deer coming out of the woodwork towards your grapes and gardens in search of food. Today, there are approximately 30 million white-tailed deer and over 3 million mule deer (elk) roaming around properties and home gardens in North America. Although they look innocent enough, they are known for being the most destructive wildlife species. In facts, wildlife responsible for crop damage in the United States include:

  • White-tailed deer (94% reported by farmers)
  • Wild Hogs (61%)
  • Coyotes (33%)
  • Raccoons (30%)
  • Armadillos (19%)
  • Rabbits (10%)
National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) reported
wildlife damage to U.S. agriculture at $944 million during 2001.
Field crop losses to wildlife totaled
$619 million and losses of vegetables, fruits, and nuts totaled $146 million.

Not to mention the hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to cars - including injuries and fatalities each year. With the over-population of deer, there has been a surge of damage among farms and gardens. Just two deer can produce a herd of up to 35 deer in just seven years!

Crops Damaged By Deer

In addition to grape vines and vegetable gardens, corn, peas, cotton, watermelon, soybeans and peanuts experienced the most damage from white-tailed deer.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/Crop_Damage_near_the_Cradley_Brook_-_geograph.org.uk_-_513937.jpgCrops From Bird Damage

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) estimates that birds and other wildlife cause more than $1 billion in damage each year to civil aircraft in this country (USDA 2012). Birds destroy grapes, sunflowers, rice, corn, wheat, fruit, nuts and other crops in the United States. Bird damage to fruit including applies, blueberries and grapes exceeded $41 million as of 2012. Sunflowers and rice are the leading agriculture losses for farmers, equating to $5-13 million in crop damages.

Crop Damage From Feral Hogs

Wild Hogs cause about $1.5 billion of crop damage annually. Feral Pigs, "nature's bozers," have been seen up-and-down the East Coast including Texas, California and Oregon.

More U.S. Agriculture Damage Stats

  • Farmers reported a loss of approximately 3800 acres because of deer in 2009.
  • During 2001, field crop losses from wildlife in the United States totaled $619 million and losses of vegetables, grapes, fruits and nuts totaled $146 million. White-tailed deer accounted for 58% of the field crop damage and 33% of vegetable, fruit and nut damage.
  • Suburban homeowners spend thousands of dollars on deer control strategies.
  • On average in Pennsylvania, 56% of farmers report problems with deer and over $1.7 million in agriculture damage was caused by deer alone. Pennsylvania farmers suffer crop damage of an estimated $30 million annually.
  • In New York, farmers estimated their deer-related crop damages totaled $59 million in 2002.
  • New Jersey agriculture damage is estimated to exceed $10 million.

People Who Work in Vineyards are at Risk of Getting Ticks
27 December, 2016

Lyme's Disease if the most commonly reported tick-borne disease in the united states. They're many ways to reduce the risk of Lyme's Disease. First is by activly removing Tick's as soon as they are found with a tick removal tool. Second is by installing deer fence. 

Here's How to Easily Remove The Tick from Your Skin

Once you spot the tick, it is critical that you remove it at once. The sooner the better to prevent Lyme! Remember, you will have less than 48 hours to remove the tick before the possible transmission of Lyme Disease. 

Step 1: Purchase a Tick Removal Tool

Household tweezers may not be strong enough to successfully remove the tick. We suggest purchasing the Tick Remover Tool from TridentCorp.com for easy handling. This tick remover tool allows users to inspect the tick with the 20x magnification lens leaving them at peace knowing they have removed all parts of the insect from your body. 

2) Disinfect the tick-biting area with rubbing alcohol or soap and water.

3) Pull the tick straight up. Be sure that the head and body both comes out completely. (Remember: Tick-borne disease transmission is not possible without the tick's head as this is what is burrowed inside the skin.) Do not rush the process so the tick's body does not break apart. If it does break for any reason, remove the broken parts from the infected area - do not leave the remaining body parts attached to your skin. 

4) Disinfect the tick-biting area with rubbing alcohol one final time.

5) Place the tick in a sealed container. Store in refrigerator if it is alive, and the freezer if it is dead.

6) Take the tick to a doctor's office quickly for testing to identify the type of tick; and consider testing for Lyme Disease and other diseases.

 


Pretty but Pesky, Deer Are Cute but Can Damage Your Vineyard
09 December, 2016

As deer populations increasingly encroach on residential areas, there has been a shift away from viewing deer fences as a niche product. 

Who doesn't love Bambi, with those adorable doe eyes and a little white tail? The media has done a tremedous job in getting the public to fall in love with these seemingly gentle creatures. And, while these animals are beautiful, they can destroy gardens and carry ticks that spread Lyme Disease. So, what's someone to do to keep deer on the "other side of the fence"? 

Contuinue reading to find out what you need to do to keep deer on the otherside of your precious grape vines!

Deer in Your Vineyard Can Bring Ticks Along with Them
18 November, 2016

Deer ticks pass through four life cycles: egg, larva, nymph and adulthood over a one to two-year period. They do not jump or fly; but they do crawl.

White-tailed deer are the favorite hosts of deer ticks. In the warm summer months, when deer become extremely active, deer ticks thrive. As deer enter backyards in search of food, deer ticks and Lyme disease follow – and they do not go dormant – even in the wintertime.

Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borrelia Burgdorferi which is transmitted to humans and animals through tick bites. “Although many tick species can transmit Lyme disease, deer ticks are primary carriers in the United States,” says Mark Dayhoff, wildlife control expert and general manager of DeerBusters.com.

Not all deer ticks are infected with Lyme Disease; but if they attach to a human, and stay for longer periods of time, the effects can be harmful.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d2/Tick_%28aka%29.jpg/256px-Tick_%28aka%29.jpgHow do you get Lyme Disease?

Most often, individuals get bit while working outside in the garden, hiking, or walking their dog. Deer ticks usually hang out in grassy or woodland areas. Deer ticks have a hard shell behind the “head” that burrows inside the skin to where the infection may begin.

Symptoms of Lyme Disease:

In 60-80 percent of all cases, a rash resembling a “bull’s eye” appears around the skin of the bite. This often occurs within 30 days. (Sometimes, multiple rashes can occur around the infected bite.) Most individuals will experience a fever, headache, fatigue, muscle aches, and swollen glands – often confused with signs of the flu. As the disease progresses, severe fatigue and numbness of the arms and legs occurs – even facial paralysis. Symptoms may not be immediately after a tick bite.

Treatment for Lyme Disease:

Early treatments require antibiotics and usually result in full cures. However, the chances for a full recovery decrease if treatment is delayed.

Avoiding the Risk of Lyme Disease:

If you are an outdoors enthusiast, it is strongly suggested that you wear insect repellents and/or long-sleeve clothing. Be sure to do a thorough body tick-check after outdoor events on both pets and yourself.

Here are the latest facts about deer ticks presented by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry:

1) Ticks are becoming resistant to pesticides

2) Blacklegged ticks live in woody areas. Exposure to these ticks can be greatest along trails and edges of woods.

3) Blacklegged ticks generally climb onto a person or animal near ground level.

4) Ticks are stimulated by heat, carbon dioxide, and movement.

5) Ticks are most active in the warm months of May through September; making NOW prime time to be at risk.

6) Male ticks do not take a blood meal from a host. Because of this, male ticks do not carry Lyme Disease.

7) 30%-40% of DEET products are most effective for ticks. Use on skin and clothing, targeting shoes, pants and legs.

8) Purchase a proper Tick Removal Tool. DO NOT use nail polish remover, gasoline or Vaseline on the tick-infested area to remove the tick.

9) Lyme Disease rashes are usually circular ‘Bulls-Eye’ marked. However, this is not always the case. Some appear to have linear markings such as stretch marks. As a safety precaution, visit a doctor after tick removal.

10) Symptoms of Lyme Disease are often mistaken for a flu because they contain: Fever, Chills, Headache, Muscle pains, Joint pain and Fatigue.

11) Ticks need to be attached more than 24 hours before infection is transmitted.

12) Less than 50% of patients with tick borne disease remember a tick bite.

13) Some state or local health departments offer tick tests. Contact your local jurisdiction for such a service.

poly-fence-resize.pngWhat can we do to stop the spread of deer ticks?

According to Dayhoff, “deer fencing is the most effective means for excluding deer.” Dayhoff adds that “animal repellents, which deter deer using odors and chemicals, and animal scaring devices, which deter deer using sounds, can be satisfactory alternatives when deer fencing is not feasible.”

According to the National Center for Biological Information, a division of the National Institute of Health, the use of deer fencing has been proven to reduce the risk of Lyme disease by 83-97%. Without deer entering the area surrounding your vineyard, new deer ticks become limited and eventually, existing deer ticks become scarce.

According to Dayhoff, “non-toxic, organic deer repellents can be an excellent alternative to harsh chemical repellents. In addition to the environmental benefits, organic repellents can be safer for children and pets.”

Protect Your Hard Work and Harvest Investment from Pests
15 August, 2016

Trident Enterprises Inc. Provides Global Solutions to Deer and Wildlife in Your Vineyard

TridentLogoIt began as a group of hardworking people installing electric fencing for farmers who needed assistance with their livestock.

It’s become a worldwide solution for multiple vineyards, winery owners, agencies and individuals who require protection from the deer and wildlife that threaten their investments through encroachment.

“We kept getting calls asking ‘what do you have for deer?'” reports Martin Havrilla, the Office Manager for Trident Enterprises Inc., at the company’s U.S. headquarters in Pennsylvania. “We decided to try to solve that problem. Word got out and we’ve now established ourselves as the largest distributor of poly deer fence rolls across the board.”

Founded in 1984, Trident Enterprises Inc. has specialized in permanent solutions in deer and wildlife fencing control for viticulturists, gardeners, farmers and homeowners across North America. The company has a proven track record of success against deer encroachment in valuable vineyards.

“When deer are getting into vineyards and a deer fence is installed a deer will first push against the fence to test it and then put their noses to the ground in an attempt to go under, Havrilla explains. “It’s important to have the fence all the way to the ground and properly staked to keep the deer from getting in underneath. Once they’ve pushed the fence and tried to go under it, they will simply walk along the fence line until they either find an entry point or end up at a new food source.”

TridentCorp Deer Fence2 (600x400)

Although now focused exclusively on supply, the company’s extensive background in fencing installation led to an expanded line of fencing accessories, including rebar stakes, driveway gates, trellises, corner and end systems and complete installation kits, which are customizable.

“Kits are a great solution, especially if customers aren’t quite sure what they want,” confirms Havrilla. “We have options for digging animals, which flare out along the bottom, and also tensioning supplies. In areas where a fence will be visible, tensioning adds the support you need to tighten up the structure to make it more visually appealing.”

In addition to dominating the U.S. market, Trident Enterprises Inc. expanded into Canada earlier this year with a dedicated Canadian website at DeerbustersCanada.ca. The new site lists fencing and supplies in Canadian currency, which, as Havrilla points out, takes all of the uncertainty out of the equation and allows for door to door shipping.

“We’ve seen a lot of growth since we’ve launched this site, which is very encouraging,” Havrilla affirms. “Expanding into Canada is a first step in Trident Enterprise’s international business plan. We want to open up our deer fence product line overseas, into places like Australia, where there’s an established need.”

Trident Enterprises Inc. has seen steady growth in the last three to five years with wine industry clients across the U.S. and plans to extend its reach into international vineyards as well.

“We provide bird netting, as well as well as 1 ¾ inch mesh size fencing, which cuts back on browsing for any size vineyard, nursery or garden center,” confirms Havrilla. “Whether it’s a large or small business, it’s important to keep animals out to protect your hard work and investment.”

Trident Enterprises Inc.’s clients include wineries, orchards, national state parks, universities, public gardens, small businesses, and federal organizations including the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA, and the USDA.

The Story Behind the Leading Poly Deer Fence Supplier in North America
11 July, 2016

Established in 1984 as a livestock fencing installation company in Frederick, Maryland, Trident Enterprises’ background gave them the confidence in 1994 to develop their own line of deer fence kits and accessories to address the needs of nationwide gardeners, farmers and homeowners while helping to reduce the spread of Lyme Disease carried by deer ticks.

Today, under the direction of Trident, Deerbusters.com leads the industry in do-it-yourself lawn and garden fencing across the United States while providing competitive pricing and exceptional customer service. With warehouses in both Pennsylvania and California, Deerbusters serves the U.S. Department of Interior, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, USDA, EPA, national parks, vineyards, landscapers, and orchards. In 2016, Deerbusters launched DeerbustersCanada.ca, the official retail website serving the Canadian market.

After outgrowing warehouse space in Frederick, Trident acquired Vision Warehousing and Distribution’s 110,000 square feet of ambient storage space to house, package and ship fencing and garden products available on Mastergardening.com, also under Trident. Upon moving to Waynesboro, Trident decided to keep Vision’s commercial cold storage facility. Although Vision specializes in cold and frozen storage, Trident offers dry storage and fulfilment services to small and large corporations, suppliers and manufacturers. Trident provides paying jobs to local residents and continues to support the community through charitable partnerships and fundraisers.

Trident is currently undergoing a complete renovation project at the Headquarters.

Useful Deer Information
27 June, 2016

Common Types of Deer In The U.S.

Mule Deer- (O.h. hemionus) The Mule deer gets its name from the large mule-like ears on the top of it’s head.  The deer has white rump patch and a black tipped tail, which it keeps down while running. Mule deer have a long heavy grey coat in the winter months and a reddish tan coat during the warmer months. Male Mule deer weigh between 125 and 250 pounds, while females are usually smaller and only 100 to 150 pounds. Mule deer will make seasonal migrations between winter and summer ranges. During heavy winters mule deer will often migrate into cities and towns in search of food, usually ending up in your backyard gardens. Mule deer are browsers and will eat many different types of vegetation. Research has shown there are nearly 800 varieties of plants that mule deer will eat. In the spring and summer, mule deer bulk up on green plants and new growth. During the winter they mainly consume twigs and branches. Since mule deer are smaller than white tails, the Tridentcorp.com Heavy Duty Standard strength poly deer fence is suitable for backyard gardens and small enclosures. To enclose the entire backyard, or for areas with heavy mule deer pressure, using a stronger fence such as the Extra Strength Perimeter Fence is recommended. Most deer will not try to jump a deer fence unless spooked, but it is important to have a fence height of at least 7.5’ to prevent easy access to your garden.

White-Tailed Deer- (Odocoileus Virginianus) White-tailed deer are usually tan or brown in color with white areas around the throat, eyes, and nose as well as the stomach. The signature strip of white on these deer can be found on the underside of the tail, often seen raised as a “flag” to allow fawns and other deer to follow behind. White-tails can run at speed up to 30 MPH and are excellent leapers, making a 7.5’ deer fence a must to keep them out of the garden. Male white-tailed deer weigh between 150 and 300 pounds while female weights range anywhere between 90 and 200 pounds. The white-tailed deer are common in most of the United States except for in the southwest. Most white-tail deer herds live their entire life within a one to four mile radius, usually in a wooded area. White-tailed deer are voracious herbivores, as most gardeners can attest. White-tails prefer to feed in the early morning or late afternoon. In the spring and summer deer are hungry for green plants and seemingly everything in the garden. By fall, their feeding habits switch to acorns, corn and varieties of nuts. During the winter, deer will mainly consume buds and twigs. Because of the size of white-tailed deer, using the standard strength deer fence is only recommended for small garden plots and individual garden beds. Larger areas and complete enclosures should be constructed using the Extra Strength or Maximum Strength Deer Fencing. These deer fences feature higher breaking strengths and are strong enough to withstand an impact without breaking. It is important to make sure your deer fence is at least 7.5’ high to counter the excellent leaping abilities of the white-tail deer.  

Our fence systems are designed to last up to 20 years and are the only proven solution to keeping deer out of vineyards. We pride ourselves on the strength and innovation which go into our fencing and are proud to be the innovators behind the reinforced edge, adding strength to the bottom of the fence to prevent animals from getting in at the base. Trident fencing is some of the strongest and most reliable deer fencing available.

Deer Fencing: Saves Vines and Prohibits Lyme Disease
21 March, 2016

Deer can bring a host of problems into your vineyard or garden... they will eat tender new grape leaves and branch shoots first, but they will also eat older leaves and even chew on woody grape vines. Deer may also leave scratches in the thick bark of the main grape vine. Even more concerning is the thought of the pests that the Deer bringf with them - TICKS. Invisible deer fencing, for example, can be highly effective without disrupting the look of surrounding property. Contact us today!


Why Choose Trident Corp Deer Fence?
08 June, 2015

Trident Corp has been the leading supplier of deer fencing material in the United States for the last 20 years. You can purchase from us comfortably knowing you dealing with the industry leaders. 

Established in 1984 as a livestock fencing installation company, Trident Enterprises has been a wildlife exclusion expert for decades.  While initially dealing only with electric fencing products, steady inquiries about deer and garden pest control barriers  motivated us to become more involved with deer fencing, and in 1994, we began to install and distribute our very first deer fencing products. 

Though we transitioned from installer to strictly distributor, our background in installation gave us the knowledge to develop our own line of deer fencing accessories, like our rebar stakes, driveway gates, corner and end systems, and kits to address the needs of our customers.  Our experience continues to assist us in offering the best customer service possible when it comes to helping our customers during the installation process. 

Through the years, we have had the pleasure of working with a variety of businesses and organizations, including Virginia Tech University, The Philadelphia Zoo, SeaWorld, and Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.  We recently opened our first west coast warehouse in Benicia, California to ensure that our customers on both sides of the US have access to the deer fencing products they need as quickly as possible.  We offer both TENAX and Trident Corp. fencing rolls to meet the strength and invisibility preferences of our customers.

Our rodent fencing is available in rolls so you can attach it to the bottom of your deer, dog, or cat fence. These fences are made from steel and have a smaller-diameter webbing that is chew-resistant and keeps even the smallest rodents out of your yard or property.

No matter what type of animal you’re trying to keep out of (or in) your yard, we can help. If you have any questions, please feel free to call one of our experts.


DEER FENCing: saves vines. Prohibits LYME DISEASE
19 May, 2014

  • Deer can bring a host of problems into your vineyard or garden... they will eat tender new grape leaves and branch shoots first, but they will also eat older leaves and even chew on woody grape vines. Deer may also leave scratches in the thick bark of the main grape vine. Even more concerning is the thought of the pests that the Deer bringf with them - TICKS.

With symptoms ranging from fever, headaches and fatigue to damaging infections of the joints, heart and nervous system, Lyme disease is a significant health concern. “Although many tick species can transmit Lyme disease, deer ticks are primary carriers in the United States,” says Mark Dayhoff, wildlife control expert and general manager of Tridentcorp.com. 

White-tailed deer are the favorite hosts of deer ticks. In the warm summer months, when deer become extremely active, deer ticks thrive. As deer enter vineyards, gardens & backyards in search of food, deer ticks and Lyme disease follow.

According to Mr. Dayhoff, “deer fencing is the most effective means for excluding deer.” Wiles adds that “animal repellents, which deter deer using odors and chemicals, and animal scaring devices, which deter deer using sounds, can be satisfactory alternatives when deer fencing is not feasible.” 

According to the National Center for Biological Information, a division of the National Institute of Health, the use of deer fencing has been proven to reduce the risk of Lyme disease by 83-97% (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). Without deer entering the area surrounding your home, new deer ticks become limited and eventually, existing deer ticks become scarce.

When choosing a method for deer control, factors to consider include environmental impact, cost, value, safety, aesthetics and practicality. “Deer fencing is available in a variety of sizes, styles and prices and can be judged by its strength (or breaking load), warranty, ease of installation and the aesthetics of its design,” explains Wiles. “Virtually invisible deer fencing, for example, can be highly effective without disrupting the look of surrounding property.

According to Wiles, “non-toxic, organic deer repellents can be an excellent alternative to harsh chemical repellents. In addition to the environmental benefits, organic repellents can be safer for children and pets.”

By protecting your living area from deer, you may reduce your risk of Lyme disease by as much as 97%.
