Hello - one quick question that I cant seem to figure out.

I would like to make two of my 8 high tensile wires into ground wires which will connect to the three rods pounded into the ground. Do the two ground wires need insulators on the t posts and on the terminal ends? I am wondering if I can just tie the high tensile wires onto the wood posts directly and hook them to the t posts without insulating from the metal t posts.

Like in this picture, can i just use staples with no insulators on the 2 wires ill be hooking to the ground rods?

Thank you very much!

Hubby says his buddy just staples his ground wires onto the posts.
