Plot Protector fence....
« on: September 17, 2016, 09:41:08 PM »
Has anyone ever used a "Plot Protector " fence.  It is a white tape about 1" wide, you put it up about 30" high and then spray it with this chemical that is supposed to deter deer from crossing the fence.  It was recommended to me this year and agreed to try it... if it works I have to give a referral if it doesn't the dealer said he would refund half the purchase price. We are friends and its more of a bet than anything else...I will let you guys know.

I used an older version of the same thing.  White ribbon tape about 1" wide held up with white plastic or fibergalss poles about 3' high and sprayed with a deer repellent that came with it.

Unsure how well the deer repellent worked as I did not have any trail cams at that time.

I can tell you this, the wind kept knocking it down.  I'd go back after a day or so and it would be bent down on the ground or close to it.  Even after adding additional poles over the spacing recommended, the wind still took it easily.  Sometimes right off the poles and would find it in the middle of the plot.

Was more trouble, for me and my situation, than it seemed worth.

p.s., this was around about a 3/4 acre rectangular plot.

Thanks Jaeger, I used steel t-post and tie wraps to hold it in place since I'm about an hour away.  I will go check it in a couple of days though, thanks for the heads up

It works my mother uses it on her garden and flower beds. She doesn't use the fence she just sprays the stuff right on the plants. The deer will not eat what is sprayed but they will eat around it. She has been using it for 3 yrs now. It will last about 2 weeks even if it rains some. Best thing I ever bought her according to her.

OFG - probably not, I'm guessing the *%#&@) pigs would eat the tape, and then the plot.     ()*$%RT
