If I say "nap time" she'll practically knock me over to get into the bedroom first.

some of the reviews...

1.0 out of 5 stars Kills small animals
This might work good for small animals, but it has burned and killed a cat and a duck. Nothing like grandkids finding this stuff. Good thing I removed it before any of the grandkids got into it.
Published 2 months ago by Larry

***Larry did something wrong for it to have killed a cat or a duck, but the potential is there***

My old (only a couple years old) fence charger died. I had left it plugged in for long periods and I think that hastened its demise with wire groundings. They seem to only last 2 or 3 years, so it was time to buy another.
My dogs had gone on a digging rampage in the garden / flower beds and I ran wire around the beds, but with the old charger dead, they would test the wire. One dog would bite the wire. After plugging the charger only twice and each time for just a couple of minutes, the dog found that the wire bites back. Now she stays 5 foot away from the wire, but digs in the middle of the back yard.

more typical results...a 5 star rating



5.0 out of 5 stars Works well and shocks the veggie plant chewing critters in there tracks, no complaints!, June 1, 2013
By D. C. W. - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fi-Shock EAC10A-FS Super 525 Energizer, 10-Acre (Lawn & Patio)
Simple, inexpensive, and an effective deterrent to garden damaging animals! Haaah, I win! Sick and tired of having animals chew up my vegetable garden and wrecking my passion!


in fact most of the ratings are 5 star...



$10.00 fence wire (12 ga one spool)
$10.00 insulators
$30.00 fence charger
______
$50.00 sub total

add shipping and handling, taxes, and fence posts, or poles and you will be right around 100 bucks. These days that can be hard to free up from a fixed budget.

mouse traps and fishing line, and some cap gun caps can make scare traps for around 10 bucks...not quite as effective, but will scare most critters enough to cause them to leave.

That mouse trap idea looks more like something our budget can handle right now.  I'm just shocked the wood pallets didn't keep the bobcats away.  Dh completely rebuilt the pen with wood pallets on all 4 sides, then he covered the entire top and sides with wire.  He even nailed up some boards over some of the wider spaces between the slats.  I KNOW this would have kept out any coyotes or hawks, and we were sure it was predator proof.  These bobcats must have been pretty hungry.

Maybe you could suggest to your dh to nail a few extra boards going in the opposite direction OVER the ends of the wire to help keep it attached to the pallets. If your boards are going vertical then nail some horizontal, making a sandwich with the wire inside.

Bobcats ARE cats. All of them have that "play with my food" thing going on. It probably wouldn't matter what pen they were in they would have tried to get it open and they are strong.
