We had a raccoon in the yard
But not everything has been pleasant. Our home is nice but no one told us about our nocturnal visitor. We discovered after a couple of nights that we had a local raccoon that had decided our back patio was a great location for his personal latrine. I stayed up one night to see if I could scare it away but I missed him. I can tell you though that he came between 3 AM and 3:30.
I wasn't looking forward to this battle but as it turned out, it was a simple solution. I went to Home Depot and found a product called "Critter Ridder". I just spread the granules around the patio and I haven't seen the raccoon since. I can't believe it was that easy but it worked.
Guess I have to recommend Critter Ridder. It worked very well for me.
