raccoons in sweet corn and not afraid of electric fence
This is the first time in our long history of gardening that raccoons have not been controlled with electric fencing. Our digital meter indicates our solar charged fencing gives off 6000v +. We are resorting to traps placed INSIDE the fence, and so far have caught 3, using tuna and marshmallows for bait. Earlier on they were breaching the AC-charged fence--only 2500 v.
I froze all my Kandy Korn in one day in order to get some. I have 8 patches of sweet corn( different varieties) and am worried about getting any more for the freezer. I like to give some to our neighbor and haven't been able to do that either.
Is there some kind of animal wisdom at work here that augurs a bad winter ahead?
