I have been using this in my farms for quite a while and find it very useful. I started using it when I discovered owls perching at the entrance hole of my farms.
I need something not only to scares Predators away but also something that could make them remember so that they wouldn’t perch there again. The current from Wire could burn the Predators.
Since I am making another one for my new coming farm it would be good to show those who wanted to DIY how I make it.
You need a piece of wood those extra Meranti Planks of 6x1” would be good. The length would be according to the width of the entrance hole.
PVC pipes are screwed on to both sides of the plank. Drill holes on both PVC pipes. It depends on how many wires you want to put on the planks. I prefer 6-7 wires which ½” apart from each. Make sure you use Aluminum or Stainless steel wire to prevent corrosion and rust from rain water.
Wires from both ends are pulled tight and use the wire joint to lock them. 3 of the wires are connected to the positive and 3 connected to the negative of an AC/DC converter. For 7 wires then 4 Negative and 3 Positive and so on. The Positive wire and Negative wire have to be placed next to each other, alternately one positive and one negative. Make sure you use a reliable AC/DC converter. I recommend Teletron (you may search the web) there are 6v, 8v,12v and so on.
I use a 12v converter. It is good enough to burn, it may kills smaller predators. You could use a timer to control the converter where you could set the time to switch on the converter.
I switch them on from 7pm to 2 am this is the time Owl hunts.
Good Farming All!
