Any home can be wired with electric bear deterrent fencing. Some homes are more challenging than others however. If you have an outlet outside near your front door that makes things easier, otherwise an outlet needs to be installed to supply power for the system. If your windows open out or if you have screen doors, installation is a bit tougher. If your homes exterior is rock or brick it can make concealing and attaching the wiring a bit more difficult also. Because we are general Contractors we are well versed in utilizing different fasteners to accommodate the different situations your home may require.
Lake Tahoe Electric Bear Fencing is also very conscious of aesthetics and how the system looks on your home. We pride ourselves on our clean and minimalist installations that are still as affective as any-others. We can use different color wires to blend with your home and most of the system is paint-able as well.
We live here in Lake Tahoe because we love the great beauty of the environment and all that comprise it. The Black Bears are one thing that defines Tahoe Forest’s and it would be a shame if they were no longer a part of the natural beauty that is Lake Tahoe. If you feed a bear either intentionally or by accident you are threatening that bears life. Once a bear associates us a food source then they start getting close to us. Once this happens people start complaining that the bears are a problem and need to be taken care of.
We would rather not have to employ tactics to deter the Black Bear from our properties but it has become a necessity since others have constantly irresponsibly “trained” the bears to seek our homes as places of sustenance. We have found a safe and effective way to “train” the bears not to come in our homes seeking food and that is the use of electric fencing.
Some Facts about the Electric Fence System:
The system we use has been modified over the years to be the most effective electric fence deterrent for bears in Tahoe. We use only Stafix energizers for their reliability and proven track record in the Lake Tahoe snow and cold. For remote and solar installations we use different brands determined by the situation. We use a very high strength poly rope line that is interlaced with 9 aluminum wires. The poly gives it the strength and the wires its electricity.
The fencing system we use is just like systems used for livestock and cattle but modified for your home and for deterring the Black Bears of Lake Tahoe. The fence has a very high voltage running through it that is not constant but pulsing and at a very low amperage. Because of the low amperage and pulsing the fencing is safe to humans, pets and your home. All the local authorities; Fire, sheriff and the Department Of Fish and Game encourage the use of the fencing as it is an effective and a safe way to deter bears from breaking into homes.
