Predator Problems?

I am planning to enlarge my outdoor habitat, hopefully to have it ready for the "emergence" in the spring. The current set-up is covered -- sorry I couldn't include a photo, but my software isn't cooperating right now. I'm just not sure HOW I'm going to be able to cover all the new space, which bothers me as I'm super paranoid about predators getting to my babies!

From this forum's collective experiences, just how much of a problem can predators be and are there other ways of combatting them besides covering? I've seen about as many photos of uncovered habitats as I have covered ones. I read one post where someone planned to put electrified wire around the perimeter, but doubt that would keep big birds out. What about judicious plantings?

So far, all we seem to have around here that would have access to my yard are cats, an occasional opossum, birds, and birds of prey (hawks & kites).
