Vegetation touching the electric fence is one of the most destructive elements facing an electric fence owner.
Under normal conditions your energizer will pulse voltage onto the fence every second or so and a minimal current will flow in the fence for that time period. This is normal and your energizer is constructed to do this ad last for many years.
However, when there is vegetation touching the fence then that current increases as the additional current is flowing to earth via the vegetation, you may or may not hear a clicking sound at that spot.
The energizer is not made to pulse a high current for prolonged periods and eventually your high voltage coils in the energizer will become faulty.
In addition to that, because your fence is pulsing through the vegetation at near it maximum output, then when a perpetrator touches the fence he may not receive the shock you were expecting him to get
Below is a handy guide on how to care for your fence and get the most out of it.
