...and it's not on the ground.
I've used the stuff for years to keep birds, squirrels and deer off certain plants. Lately, I've used it to keep the chickens out of the area around our pool. The stuff is great because it's virtually invisible.
The invisible part also makes it a hazard for small wildlife. Twice this week I have rescued spiny tree lizards from the netting behind the pool. They go after a bug and find themselves impossibly tangled in the stuff. Luckily, they're fairly good sports about being picked up and having the net gently cut away with cuticle scissors. I knew those tiny scissors would come in handy for something.
Snakes, however, are not good sports about being cut out of the netting. A couple years ago I found a very large Eastern Coachwhip snake tangled up in a number of ways. It took my neighbor and me an hour to cut it loose and not get bitten. I, being the weird snake lover that I am, doctored its numerous wounds with neosporin before letting it go. It didn't seem all that grateful. Nasty old snake!
I think it's time to use a different material to keep unwanted critters out of my flower beds and garden.
