Georgia and we have a large population of deer, rabbits, raccoon, skunk, etc - even a few black bear. In past years, any attempts at gardening have had few results as the indigenous population consumed the majority of our plants before they could bare fruit. (and I use/have tried numerous deterrents, active and passive) I used this tape to run three strands around the garden, connected to charger and so far it has protected the garden from all comers. The tape is easy to work with, seems to be of high quality, does not sag and so far - no sign of wear and tear or weathering (thought it has only been in use 10 weeks so far). Once the summer growing season ends, I will run a strand around the back perimeter and see if prevents the deer from foraging my fall flowers.Date published: 2013-06-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review Good quality product at a very fair price.

Zareba® Systems electric fence poly tape provides even greater visibility than poly wire or poly rope. Reinforced, rip-stop edges also help protect the tape from wear and tear.
The open weave design allows wind to pass through, reducing wear and increasing the longevity of the fence line.
For best results, energize poly tape fence lines with a low impedance fence charger. Poly tape should not be used with a continuous output charger.
The height and spacing of the wires will vary with the animal you are containing. Position one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height; this will cause it to hit the fence with its nose, making it back up.
Use poly tape for horse fencing or in rotational grazing since the animals can easily see this highly visible electric fence wire. Splice poly tape with splicer buckles specially designed for easy splicing and repairing of poly tape.
Poly wire is lightweight, so it is very easy to handle. You can rewind it very easily, move it and re-use it. Splice poly wire by tying a good, tight knot to maintain connections. Use a poly wire line tightener on each line and each side of the fence to maintain wire tension.
FENCE CHARGERS FOR WIRE
Use a low impedance fence charger with poly wire and poly tape products.
PERMANENT PERIMETER FENCING
For a permanent perimeter fence, you may want to use high tensile or steel wire as your fence wire.More Expert Tips About Fence Wire»
Fence Wire FAQs
Q: Why is poly tape better for use with horses than regular wire?
A: It's a matter of visibility. Horses can see the tape more readily than wire. Remember, electric fencing is a psychological barrier: after a horse has met up with a poly tape electric fence and has felt the shock, when it sees the poly tape again, it will remember the shock and stay away from the fence.
Q: Why should I place one wire at the animal's shoulder?
A: Positioning one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height will cause the animal to hit the fence with its nose, making the animal back up. See illustration below.
