Has anyone ever had ants short out their electric fence charger? I tested it yesterday and it was getting zero juice. I took it down and ants went everywhere. I finally got them cleaned out and still nothing.
I have walked the fence, checked insulators, posts, I can't find anything wrong. My charger says it is putting out the juice but the fence tester says otherwise. This is getting frustrating. It seems like I am fooling with this darn thing all the time anymore.
I have three ground rods sunk 6' and spaced 12' apart. I took the wire brush and cleaned the clamps. I'm baffled.
