How does Electric Poultry Netting function?
The net is manufactured in Europe from Polyurethane with metal filaments running through the horizontal strands (apart from the bottom base line). The net is mounted on PVC posts. To ‘charge’ the net an Energiser is connected to the net and to the ground via an earth stake. This forms an open circuit.
When an animal comes into contact with the net and ground it completes an electric circuit and gets a shock. This is why the net itself does not need to be erected in a loop and can be erected in a straight line if required. The Energiser produces a high voltage pulse approximately once every second. Foxes, like most animals, investigate unfamiliar additions to their environment and it is at this point that the shock is delivered. Although the net is not of insurmountable height, once the animal has been shocked the net will be a sufficient enough psychological barrier and the animal will be highly unlikely to attempt to breech it.
