Hi Guys. I wanted to

By Southern Wildlife Management

Hi Guys. I wanted to interject my 2 cents worth on this topic. I own a wildlife trapping & removal company in Georgia. (Not a plug more to establish expertise) I am all about home remedies for everything. I want you to consider this though if you are trying to ward off Raccoon. First & foremost there are beneficial critters and insects that the home remedies might be chasing off. You want to consider the innocent victims of the material you are using.

Also, if you ever try to catch a raccoon in a big box store animal trap and fail. Fail because of the strength of the trap or fail because trap set wrong or fail because of bait used... you have just educated that raccoon and now not only prevented yourself from catching it but also might make it harder on a professional to remove. Be wary of good intentions causing you even more effort.
