How to get rid of raccoons: humane, expert methods and smells they hate

Visits from raccoons are a nocturnal event for many of us, and while they look cute, assuming you ever see them, it can be hell living next to them, noisily knocking over trash cans in search of food, and wreaking havoc in the garden ruin, ruin the lawn, annoy pets, eat food you leave for garden birds, make off with pet chickens, and even damage the fabric of your home.

If these signs aren’t enough evidence that you have an infestation, you can spot their tracks on damp soil or their dark, cylindrical droppings. And maybe you were woken up by their nightly noises, which in turn no doubt woke up your dog and maybe the whole neighborhood.
