Florida is home to a wide variety of unwelcome and dangerous wildlife and one of the best ways to provide children and pets with protection is with a chain-link fence or alternately, an iron or PVC fence. It keeps youngsters and pets from venturing too close to a situation that has the potential to be dangerous and the ability to keep wildlife predators off the lawn.

A chain-link fence is strong, durable, and cost-effective. As an added benefit, Zepco Fence installs all of its gates with self-closing springs and childproof locks, along with a bottom cable to keep unwanted wildlife from digging under the enclosure while keeping children and pets inside.

The extensive network of waterways in Florida means alligators have a high presence in the state. Even small alligators have the ability to drag off small children, while dogs and cats are typically devoured in a bite or two. Zepco can also design fencing solutions to meet specific needs. The company has created custom fencing for big cat organizations that have been adopted by the state’s Dept. of Wildlife Management.

A chain-link fence is one of the best deterrents for keeping wildlife out. It’s important to know that no fence is foolproof and alligators have been known to climb fences. There are even reports of large alligators chewing through fences so never leave children or pets attended.

Alligators aren’t the only species of wildlife predators in Florida. A fence can act as a deterrent for the state’s black bears, Florida panthers, bobcats, and red wolves. Some of the species are endangered and the likelihood of encountering them is slim. However, there are still wild boars, coyotes, and armadillos can be a nuisance since they dig looking for food and to make burrows.

The most often encountered wildlife in Florida will probably be alligators and a chain-link fence is one of the best ways to deter them from entering the yard. Alligators have been found in garages, under cars, and in backyard pools. Even with a custom chain link fence, never leave children and pets unattended.
