Another common material I like to use is chicken wire. It comes in smaller 1-inch openings or larger 2-inch openings. The 1-inch size is much stronger but will cost a little more. The 1-inch size also takes a little longer to bend into shape but will keep out more critters than the 2-inch size. Chicken wire can be cut with pliers or cutting shears. Its sharp, so be sure to wear gloves. You can buy a whole roll of it, 3-or 4-feet wide. In many hardware stores you can buy whatever length you want from their roll, and they will cut it for you!
