    Seriously, you need a dog that will kill varmints, not play with or chase them. A Husky might do it IDK. It's about the killer instinct.

    We got about 18" of snow a few days ago but stuff managed to germinate in my harbor freight greenhouse.

    Yea, a 10k BTU blue flame heater. I hooked up a 100 lb tank behind the greenhouse. Last year I used 14.6 gallons so this setup is enough to get me through the colder weather. I also have bubble wrap inside to help insulate a little.

    The trick is to have the heater shut off before the auto openers for the roof vents want to open, I have a thermometer on the bench and it averages around 60. The heater goes from 1-5 and I have it on 1, doesn't take much to heat but also doesn't hold the heat that long.

    for $199 that greenhouse isn't bad at all, just takes some modifications like almost everything from HF.

    I am pretty sure these are what I have, the HF ones had bad reviews. I had to do a little modification to get them to mount but it wasn't hard at all, I just used some aluminum angle iron - or whatever it is called, I can post a pic if you need one. I left them in this past winter and just cleaned off the greenhouse after it snowed, the recommend removing them but if you clean it off then it shouldn't matter. They are definitely worth it, you don't have to worry about things frying or getting too cold.

    Is your greenhouse big? Mine is only 6x8 so it heats up and cools off really fast.

    I have two of these on mine https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200414730_200414730
    They have been in use for over five years and are holding up good. I put my vents on the eves instead of in the roof. They would probably let more heat out on the roof, but we get big wind and I was worried the vents would get ripped off if they were on the roof. The first couple years I removed them each winter. The the last few years I just left them in, and it hasn't seemed to harm them.

    This green is vigorous, dang. Looks like one more mound and then let it go I suppose.

    This one has a few moundings left.

    What design do you have for your greenhouse? I'm in the valley with no trees for protection. 110mph wind load area and 60mph can be pretty typical.

    I'm thinking of 3ft vertical walls with hoops on top of that. A center beam will keep them rigid. And i was going to put a storage shed of the same size 15ft or so to the west to block a little wind.


    Second question would be, if i plan on using plastic sheeting, will i see much benefit from lining the outside and the inside to create a bubble for temperature fluctuation? Or would that area need to be sealed up/air tight to make a difference.

    The double layer will help even if it's not air tight, but I doubt plastic sheeting will hold up to that kind of wind. A high school near me has a greenhouse, and the roof is plastic sheeting. It's a well made commercial greenhouse, but they are on their third roof. I would go with something more durable. Here are a few photos of mine from earlier in this thread:

    Ooh yeah. I remember that. Maybe I'll do that, it'd save me a lot of time for sure.

    Well this is the first year we are going to have a decent sized one...Its a harbor freight 10X12. I got most of the building stuff for a wood floor yesterday. So we'll see how easy or difficult it is to put together.

    Trust me, you want to shoot them. They start multiplying and you are screwed. Get them while they arent that many. Get a pellet gun if you have to but get rid of them. You can buy poison as well.

    Edit: Read through the reast of the posts. Hope your husky takes care of the problem.
