Best Type Of Rabbit Fence
Posted on April 19 2019
Homeowners may have rabbits as pets; or perhaps, they are trying to keep rabbits out of gardens. Whatever the case, there are two types of fence on the market that are ideal for rabbit control at home, recommended by Deerbusters.com.
Here are the best fence types for rabbit control:
A fence, hexagonal in shape, is best to keep away rabbits from gardens. Thanks to small mesh dimensions (1" x 1"), bunnies will not be able to slip through the holes. The hexagonal shape is strong to resist chew marks caused by gnawing rabbits that use the fence to trim down their teeth - growing 5" inches each year. PVC on hexagonal fencing is highly recommended to act as a secondary layer of protection.
19 Gauge Welded Wire
Weld Wire Fence is another strong rabbit fence; however, it is a secondary choice to a steel hex fence. The hole sizes on 19 gauge welded wire fence are small to block bunny intrusion; however, the squares are not as strong as the hexagonal knots on the fence and may not work against larger animals.
Installation Tip For Yards
Trench fence into the ground about 6 inches to block burrowing attempts from rabbits. This will prevent outdoor pet rabbits from escaping...and will keep out nosy garden critters!
