Case Study

U.S. Coast Guard

Plastic mesh fencing had been installed to exclude snakes from a remote U.S. Coast Guard communications facility. However, following sightings of Alameda Whipsnakes and their venomous relative Northern Pacific Rattlesnakes , there were concerns that mesh fencing was not effectively excluding snakes. Animex was installed around the staging area, affixed to the perimeter chainlink fence and weighed down with gravel bags, to protect the crew living onsite. Animex functions as a unique sensory barrier that works on a behavior level to deter wildlife and there were no sightings in the staging area after its installation.
