Milk Carton Fence Keeps Raccoons Out Of Sweet Corn
After trying just about every trick in the book to keep raccoons out of sweet corn, Jack Gogerty, Hubbard, Iowa, hit upon a simple "electrified" solution that works.
He *uses 1-gal. plastic milk bottles to support and insulate electric fence wire. It's easy to set up and holds the wire - which is threaded through the handles - 3 to 4 in. off the ground.
Gogerty burns back weed growth with Roundup. He installs the fence about 10 days before the sweet corn ripens.
