My garage is 30ft +20ft and I would like to put up a loop ant. inside. Do I need to make the sides straight or can I run the wires zig zag around the inside to make the loop as big wire wise as possible?

Typically it works best to enclose as much area as you can with with wires--a circle is a little better than a square is a little better than a rectangle is a little better than a triangle.

Thanks, after I get it set up and working I will let you know how it works and then anyone that wants to get a ant. out of the ice and snow in winter has an option.
