About this episode's guests on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Peter Aquilina and Jennifer Smith

#372: How to Choose the Best Fence to Keep Deer Out of Your Vegetable Garden Jennifer Smith is the Marketing and PR Manager for Deerbusters Deer Fence in Waynesboro, PA. She has spent years studying deer movement and tick prevention through her working company.

Peter Aquilina is owner and founder of Deer Defence located in Seymour, CT. In 1998, Peter got interested in Lyme and other tick borne diseases and has been a pioneer in the deer abatement.

Trident Enterprises International has been the U.S. leading supplier of garden solutions for deer management since 1984. While initially dealing only with electric fence installation in Frederick, Maryland, steady inquiries about deer and garden pest control motivated the founder of Trident Enterprises to become involved with deer fencing; and in 1994, Trident began to install fences and distribute our very first line of poly deer fence rolls and metal deer fence rolls.

Trident Enterprises is named after the Ohio Class of Submarines that carried the ballistic "cruise" missiles in the 1970s called the Trident Subs. Because of the founder's admiration for his Navy days, he named his company after the submarine.

Today, Trident Corp is located in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania; and transitioned from installer to strictly distributor. Our background in fence installation gave us the know-how to expand our business further, by initiating our own line of deer fencing accessories, like our rebar stakes, driveway gates, corner and end systems, and kits to address the needs of our gardeners, farmers and landowners across North America. Our experience continues to assist us in offering the best customer service possible when it comes to helping our customers during the installation process. We offer both TENAX and Trident Corp. fencing rolls to meet the strength and invisibility preferences of our customers.

We are proud to serve national state parks, public gardens, orchards, wineries, universities, small businesses, and federal organizations including the U.S. Department of Interior, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, and USDA.
