Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dig Defence Wish that I had bought the taller ones. But work great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and well-made Easy to use, but more effort required in rocky spots. Have not yet been put to the test, but they seem sturdy enough to keep the skunks out from under the dog/garden shed.

How tall are they? I see length and depth but no "height"...

Asked by: TheQV
Thank you for your question. The depth and height of the unit are the same. This unit is 32" in length and 8" in height or depth. All units are made with 4 gauge galvanized steel.

How is this different than cutting off a section or two of the livestock/cattle galvanized fence panels? I've been using those for years for this very purpose. Do these sections stand up against determined diggers?

Asked by: Silkienne
Thank you for your question. In producing our units, a special welding technique is used for stronger longer lasting welds. Yes all models are manufactured to hold up to persistent diggers. The XL model is the unit to install for already existing gaps or "favorite" digging spots, while the Small/Med and Large animal barriers need to be used for prevention, where the ground hasn't been disturbed as of yet to keep it that way. Dig Defence is currently being used in numerous airport facilities to keep invasive wildlife from entering the property, coyotes, etc. Rest assured these units were tried and tested.

How do these work in stony or shale ground? We have pounded posts into the ground for years for the horses and it is not unusual to have to move several inches one way or another to get a place to be able to drive it in.

Asked by: Esmerelda
Thank you for your question, we always ask consumers before purchase to please be sure that this product will be able to be installed, ie. (no solid rock or poured concrete at the preferred area). If the area is slightly rocky, the spikes are malleable enough to move around roots and certain rocks during installation. If you come across an area that is solid and installation is not achievable, the spike coming into contact can be removed with a bolt cutter.
