Well-designed fences can reduce livestock and crop predation. They are most effective when used with other methods of damage control such as baiting, trapping or livestock guard animals.

Types of fences include mesh, netting, electric and designs that overhang to prevent cats and foxes from climbing over.

Fencing can provide protection from pest animals. The initial expense is high and ongoing maintenance is required but the benefits can be long term.
