Well it was quite a response.
Of all the articles we’ve done so far, the one about keeping pond fish safe from predators really generated a lot of responses from our readers.
This doesn’t surprise me really. Pond owners are helpful, caring people, and many know what it’s like to find a heron, raccoon, cat, or other critter looking for fish for dinner. I guess that’s why I’ve never seen so many suggestions or tips come in via email regarding how to keep them all at bay.
Suggestions included motion activated lights, decoys, guard dogs, border wires, netting, and more. In my book, nearly anything goes as long as it’s legal and doesn’t harm anything.
So in the spirit of trying to help other pond owners from this plague, if you have a tip or technique for dealing with predator problems around your pond, please share it here. You can do so by using the comment section below. That way everyone can learn as we go along.
We all appreciate it!
