The wild boars are here - for better or worse

Wildboar i ZOOs and in nature

Fencing wild boar is challenging

The behavior of wild boar in digging in the ground presents special challenges, regardless of whether you want to keep the wild boar either inside or outside. Ordinary electric fences short-circuit when covered by soil or vegetation around the wire, and the wild boars learn this quickly.

RubberGuard Wire does not short-circuit in high vegetation, and therefore it is particularly suitable for fencing wild boars in natural areas that are not cared for in the same way as ordinary enclosures.

In this photo, a wild boar fence is seen in a zoo, where RubberGuard Wire is used as a supplement to a regular wire fence.

If fences shall only keep wild boar out, it should not just be a meter high, It must also be dug 30-50 cm into the ground to prevent the wild boars from digging under it. Electric fences for wild boar should have three wires at 20, 40 and 60 cm height. When using RubberGuard Wire, it is not necessary to keep the wire free of vegetation, soil, branches etc. to ensure the necessary tension.

The population of wild boar is increasing

Wild boar are found in most countries in Europe and the population is growing.

They roam in pristine forest areas or scrub-covered landscapes, and it is very difficult to fence them with traditional fencing wire, which requires continuous maintenance and supervision.
