I store grain in gravity wagons. Coons and woodchucks are getting bad - which I'm dealing with in multiple ways. One way is I need to get a good cover on these wagons. Anyone know of a tarp strong enough to tighten up that will keep coons out? I was looking at some canvas tarps but the literature says they tear if tightened down too much?

Best thing you can do is find a commercial roofing company in your area, tell them you want a single ply tarp made they should have PVC or tpo . it's welded together and easy enough to add grommets . I have seen folks build a roof with 2x4 and metal then just build an access hole hatch

I've had critters chew through those heavy duty plastic barrels, so I don't see a tarp slowing them down myself.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

Same deal with heavy canvas

I throw a couple of sheets of 3/4 inch plywood over my gravity wagon after i get it filled up. I have never had any trouble with critters getting in it.
