So I had made a post a few days ago asking if people thought basic poultry netting was strong enough to hold up to foxes and raccoons. Everyone did a good job of putting the fear in me, so I just got back from the hardware store with some 1/2" mesh 19 gauge hardware cloth. Now my next question is if people think the 19 gauge is thick enough? I was hoping to fine something in the 16 gauge range, but they didn't have any at the store and I didn't see anything with some quick online shopping. I'm going to put this right over the top of my existing poultry netting and add a 1' skirt around the edges. So hopefully the combination of the two meshes will both strengthen and prevent reach in, and the skirt should prevent digging. Thanks in advance for any help/advice people can provide.
