Re: Installing electric fence

I have a very effective 'Katzenschreck' device... my mutt Hooligan. All the meandering moggies know that in our garden There Be Dragons.

So while I enjoy my feline-free veggie beds, so too, unfortunately, do a veritable horde of rodents. I do believe that half the mice in canton Schwyz have claimed safe haven and taken up residence with us.

So as the old saying goes, be careful what you ask for...

Re: Installing electric fence

The one I have bought is only 85 db and covers about 50 sq m. I cannot hear it, and there is a test switch to lower the frequency and hear if it is working. As it is a terrace garden there are plenty of escape routes, even for humans.

85 db is the noise level for busy city traffic, this level is permitted for humans constantly for 8 hours.
