Shade and Cool System for Pumpkin: Rodent Control

Not only does this system provide all of the benefits stated above it also provides enough clearance to still allow the effective use of the ultrasonicators utilized to help keep the rodents away from the pumpkin.

Keeping the sheet in a known location that is near, but still away from the actual pumpkin creates this air flow space which works out great for the sonicators to do their job as the wavelengths behave more like a laser light and not like sound. So, anything physically in the way would reduce the effectiveness so having this gap area for air flow is beneficial to the pumpkin in addition to the rodent deterrent so it is a win-win.
