Old folks always seem to have some sort of back ailments. Just comes with our age. As we get older things wear out as is to be expected.

We use 1/2" hardware cloth for most exclusions, 1/4" for mice.

Just noticed the location of the down spout in relation to the trap. Water boarding?

Thanks limestone. This looks larger than 1/2". Thinking it ia some type of fencing.

We use 1" x 1" x 16 Gauge vinyl coated wire for most of these types of jobs for animals like fox, coyote, groundhogs, skunks etc. We use the Dig fence at the base of the wood framing and drive it into the soil to grade.

The drain drop had a run off extension section that we had to remove which ran out down past the front of the porch so the water wouldn't empty under the porch. The exclusion device needed to be installed for a little while to make sure we had good eviction before wiring was complete.

Very nice work.
Dig Defence is a great product.
I like the trap port.

Bob - do you then put a covering over your work? Siding or lattice?

Have you ever put the dig defence on the inside, then framing, then siding or lattice? I did that on a porch deck at a lavish summer home. if installed last, the top edge of the dig defence would not have been acceptable visually. It would have been an eyesore! The groundhogs were kept out.

After doing jobs where the customers were very pleased and paid in full, on future jobs I did an experiment and installed vinyl lattice attached with color matching screws. Wow, the customers loved it. Once all the framing and wire work is finished, installing the vinyl lattice is quick and easy. In fact depending on the job it could be installed using a narrow crown pneumatic or cordless stapler. To really dress up the lattice add a frame and an occasional crossmember. I use solid white 1x4 plastic lumber. Zero maintenance!
