Getting a second cage
from Springfield, OR
Comments about : Crop Cage, 4' x 8':
I bought the first cage 2 years ago. I took it down for the winter and put it up again last spring. This time I left it up since I have strawberries in that garden that I don't want the deer to get into. The cage has worked well for keeping the deer out of the garden. I've never had a problem with squirrels but that could change as my outdoor cats have been staying in now that they have gotten older. Getting a second cage for my other raised 4x8 raised bed. I had used the pop-up cage but things just didn't grow well with that and it wasn't sturdy—kept flopping around.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the second time I purchased this item.

First one to keep squirrels out of my blueberries. This one to stop birds from picking into my tomatoes.

Has anyone kept this up over multiple years and can tell me how the frame holds up? I purchased my first one - it was very easy to put together and looks good. I will use bird-netting, not the zippered net that comes with it.
easy to use, perfect size, effective

Deer Just Walk Right In
from Kerrville, Texas
Bought two for my raised beds. Some trouble getting them to fit on top and secure to edges. We were very pleased initially. They look great and it was fairly easy to get to all sections of the garden. However, the deer quickly figured out how to get their noses under the zippered sections and eat whatever they could reach. So we tied the edges down with twine. The deer then worked on getting under the sections with bias tape ties and tore all the ties off from the bottom of the netting (they were only glued on). So I sewed them back on securely. Next the deer managed to walk right through the zippers and destroyed the several of the zippers. In addition, they tore hole is the sides in a couple of places. Some holes I could repair, but others I could not. I would really like to keep using the cages and would gladly buy replacement netting if it was available, but I don't really want to buy the entire cages again. I did find that if I also sprayed the entire area with deer and rabbit repellent, I could keep them away, but the point of buying these was to not have to keep buying repellent.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Mesh is easily gnawed through
Idea is good, but no match for squirrels. Mesh needs to be stronger. A lot of money for such poor quality!

We use this over our blueberry bushes. We really tire of the "bird fight", and having them eat the berries around regular bird netting. A semi-permanent solution that can be set up in spring and taken down in fall. We love the fact that we can open a door, go inside and pick the berries. Wish I had this last year.
Already thinking of buying two more

I use it to keep the squirrels from stealing all my tomatoes
from Ridgefield, NJ
I used this cage for protecting my tomatoes from squirrels. It worked well for three months. Recently, when the fruit ripened, they chewed through the netting in two places. I repaired them and put a piece of metal fencing on it, but I'm on my guard. I would have giving this 5 stars if they didn't do this.
