Maria from Hitchcock, Texas writes,
Is there a deterrent I can use to keep raccoons away from my house?
I sometimes see them when I come home from work (around midnight) on the rooftop and then this morning around 5:30am, I heard them from bedroom and went outside to check, and sure enough I saw 2 of them.
The best way to get rid of the raccoons is to physically trap and remove them from your property with a live catch trap. If you decide you want to try a deterrent you can try the Repels All Liquid Concentrate. Repels All is made from all natural ingredients but is repulsive to vermin and other undesirable pests. Repels in three ways, by sense of touch, taste, and smell. Repels All is the most comprehensive animal repellent on the market. The unique blend of ingredients in Repels All causes mild irritation to animal's nasal passages but does not harm the animal, it drives them away, naturally.
