Now I have a raccoon
Last night, after I went to bed my husband went out to investigate noise in our yard. He was greeted by a lees-than-glad-to- see- him raccoon, all claws and teeth. In 25 years in this house, this is the first raccoon. The raccoon removed the grease drip pan (disposable aluminum) from the Weber grill and was eating the pan. He also ate tomatoes while here.
Can anyone recommend a good repellent that works? is there a simple one like blood meal or allium that might help at all? If I can borrow a havahart trap, what should I use as bait?
Seems the summer heat is finally here. Been out working in the yard, stopped for lunch and cooling off. Won't be able to stay out too much longer- it's just too hot. I was on vacation for a week and everything is overgrown and in sad need of deadheading. Gotta yank lots of giant cleome, some bigger than me, but that awful odor is working like a Karen repellent every time I try.
