Here’s a headline you don’t want to see: “Raccoon causes thousands to lose power.” But it happened just a few days ago in Florida — and it’s hardly an isolated incident. In the past month alone, raccoons have done serious damage to substations in Indiana, Michigan, Georgia … and who knows where else. Why do raccoons present such a challenge? Three reasons:
- They’re excellent climbers.
- They possess an acute sense of touch and exceptional dexterity.
- Their habitat includes most of North America.
The good news: TransGard’s patented design neutralizes these challenges. TransGard’s mild shock turns a raccoon’s sensitive touch into a deterrent. Once they come into contact with a TransGard fence, these highly intelligent animals flee — and they don’t come back.
