Dog proof (DP) traps have been out for a number of years now. Its impossible to catch a dog in one.Never heard of or seen a hand trap, learned something new.
We built our rabbit boxes & shot everything else, Father did not like steel traps, because they were not dog proof.
Deer X is great for snakes. They wind themselves in it and cant get out. I have caught a lot in it.When I move, which will be later than I had hoped, I am thinking of using screen wire on the chicken coop, to keep snakes out.
This may help with rodents & Marsupial too.
I have redwood lumber around all of my decks, and backfilled with 3/4 minus. We have about 75' of redwood deck around the house.I was pulling rotted out plastic fencing out from under the deck. If I do something, it’s gonna be good for 20yrs at least.
I know it well, the shops I have worked in called it expanded metal, because of the way it is made.
Small enough to keep out snakes, strong enough to keep out coons. Back filled, wired at joints.I know it well, the shops I have worked in called it expanded metal, because of the way it is made.
Anything that can tear through that can have my chickens.
