    I had a similar set-up over my Juneberries to keep the wax wings from eating all of the berries. Yours looks nicer, and I would love the details on how you made it if you are willing to share! Also, if the door and door frame are PVC, what are you using to hold the door closed?

    We just tore down a pvc green house and it was 25 years old, it was still in good shape but in the way, but we still have the pvc and landskape tembers and most of the wire was still good, of course back then that stuff was made alote better and landskape tembers were treated in a way they just did not rot like the onces you get now.

    They hold up good in the wind never had any problems. Run a hot wire around it no problems

    These are great, but in Illinois, I don't think they would be warm enough for in the winter . . .but guess it could be attached to a wooden structure for more cold protection. . .I want this set up for my chickens, when I GET them. There is a game reserve over close to where I live and the guy told me he cut steel fence posts in half, drove them into the ground and then just put the PVC down over them, and covered them with wire for his birds he bred for the reserve. I went by yesterday to check to see if they were still up and they are fine. He isn't using them anymore, and I might make him an offer if I take them down. . .it would be perfect for several of my projects. . . my poor husband. LOL [​IMG] [​IMG]
