How to Get Rid of Raccoons



Almost all people who live in areas frequented by these creatures report having problems with them. People have problems with raccoons tearing up their garbage, their lawns, their attics, their basements, and messing up their gardens, fish ponds and swimming pools.

Raccoons seem to love swimming pools. They like to drink the water from swimming pools.They also use swimming pools just like we do – except for one very nasty habit. Raccoons  like to swim in the pools and play water games, just like humans. However, humans don’t take a crap in the swimming pool, but raccoons do. I was reading about this guy who had a problem with raccoons in his yard and pool. The raccoons were taking a crap in his pool almost every night. (They are nocturnal creatures. If you encounter them in the day, stay far away, they could have rabies.) These raccoons were using this pool as a toilet. I have seen others who were having this same problem as well.

On one of the websites I came across, several people discussing the merits of keeping raccoons as pets. Made me scratch my head. Some people just don’t realize that raccoons are wild animals. They belong in the Wild. When they are living in the Wild apart from humans, they are great creatures of nature – smart, too. However, raccoons are clearly not pets. Also, raccoons carry rabies.

The upshot is this. In my opinion, problems develop when people live in urban areas inhabited by raccoons. When this occurs, there is potential for a lot of problems. If you live in a rural area, or even a wooded city neighborhood with a lot of trees and vegetation, you probably have a raccoon problem. In that case, the article I mentioned earlier is worth checking out.Wondering How to Get Rid of Raccoons from Your Backyard?
