Mesh Deer Fencing As A Deer Deterrent





Mesh deer fencing, also known as invisible fencing, or nearly invisible fencing comes in several colors, strengths, opening sizes, heights, and materials.  The heavier grade fencing will withstand direct impact or attempts to climb over or though it. The two main types of invisible fencing are polypropylene and the other is pvc-coated metal hexagrid mesh.   The eight foot fencing works well, especially in wooded areas where it can easily be attached to trees.  From a distance, the mesh is almost invisible, blending into the objects and shadows in the background.  The black mesh is especially desirable to blend into the scenery.  The lighter the supports used, the less visible the fence will be also.


When using mesh fencing, you should enclose the entire area you want to protect. If you leave an opening, deer can enter then do damage to the fence trying to get out when scared. The maximum span for this type of fencing is 35 feet, with a preferred distance of at least 10-25 feet, depending on type. The fencing should be pulled tight and attached to posts or trees with fencing staples. Galvanized ground staples, such as Dewitt's Ground Staples should also be used every 12 feet to keep deer from sliding underneath. Because the netting is much more flexible than wire, it can be moved around to dip into low areas and pinned down where there are holes.

Mesh fencing works on the principle that the deer can't determine how tall the fence is and therefore can't gauge the proper take-off and landing. This confusion by the deer seems to be related to the poor visibility of the fencing. From the deer's eye level the fencing seems much taller.

Fence posts should be 11-12 foot tall and made of metal, wood, or other sturdy material. Fiberglass posts are not recommended, except in low deer pressure residential areas.

As with electric fencing, it is recommended that you attach 12 inch streamers of material, foil, orange flagging tape, or other high visibility material at 3-5 feet high and every 4-12 feet so that the deer see the fencing. This can be removed after a few months when you are sure the deer are aware of the fence.

The netting should be inspected on a regular basis and tears repaired with some type of cable tie.
