Snakes and other wild animals can cause persistent problems for electrical substations, gas plants, airports, and commercial facilities. Snakes and rodents attract wild animal predators such as owls, eagles, and hawks. These large birds cause major problems when they enter into airspace at airports, or when they interfere with electrical or other operations.

United Wildlife offers a cost-effective animal deterrent system for precisely this problem. Our snake barriers prevent both aboveground and underground access to an area by snakes as well as barring rodents, raccoons and other wild animals. Preventing such land animals from accessing an area also greatly reduces the number of birds that come to the area.

No power outage or electrical shutdown is necessary during installation of our snake barrier.

Let United Wildlife provide the security, reliability, and protection you need.

digging To prevent snakes and other animal from intruding on this substation, a concrete drive pad was necessary. Power outages can be prevented through the installation of appropriate barriers, both above and below ground.

Here we are preparing to install a concrete driveway.

as Here is the finished concrete drive at the entrance gate. Snakes had gone through or over the chain link fence, entering the substation and shorting out transformers. This activity caused great revenue losses to the electrical utility company and to their customer-- approximately $30,000 a day for each blown transformer.

We installed an underground snake fence to block out snakes as well as skunks, rats, and raccoons. The fence is installed deep below ground to prevent burrowing animals from gaining access.

Complete animal removal will allow the substation to function with far fewer service interruptions.

This snake slick fence requires heavy exterior treated two-by-four or two-by-six frames. With the frames in place, the slick fence can be attached to the existing fence. Slick fence can also be attached to concrete walls, foundations, substrates, etc., and creates an excellent snake and rodent barrier.


Rats, raccoons, and squirrels were climbing the telephone poles and accessing the substation by scaling the high wire system to the transformers.

Rodent removal became critical to operations.

We installed a rodent slick sheet blockade on the telephone poles so that animals cannot climb to the electrical boxes or access the high wires.

We have had excellent success in preventing all burrowing and climbing rodents from gaining access. Comprehensive rat control can be achieved, even in semi-enclosed structures such as this.
You can see that we attached the slick sheets to the chain link fence, preventing any snakes, rodents or other animals from climbing or gaining access to the station. Note the different color of material at the gate hinge points. This product is a flexible slick fence used for gate openings and hinge points. The material has been culved or curved at the bottom, allowing the gate to open and close tightly.
This is a detail of where the gate, concrete, and slick fence meet. Animal control measures must include sealing up or blocking even the smallest gaps.
This is a five gallon container of rodent poison. It is refillable with a multi-feed rat poison, controlling the incoming animals for up to ninety days. This step will greatly contribute to rat control in the area.

We realize that our completed barrier system looks unique compared to most chain link fence barriers. This substation is in a remote area and visual aesthetics were not necessary.

The goal --to prevent wildlife outages-- was achieved.
