How to Get Rid of Raccoons from Your Backyard Edit
I have been coming across a lot of articles about people having problems with raccoons in their yards, ponds, swimming pools and the like. Recently, I cam across an interesting page. On this particular page, several people were discussing the merits of keeping raccoons as pets. I must admit, I was a little taken aback when I saw this. Raccoons are wild animals. They are OK when living in the wild. However, I would not recommend keeping raccoons as pets. Also, they are know to carry rabies and other harmful diseases. Nonetheless, there are many people who live in urban inhabited by raccoons. In these instances, there is potential for a lot of problems. Raccoons regularly invade their yards looking for food, shelter, etc. Raccoons will search garbage cans, and they will dig up lawns looking for grubs. Grubs are these insects which live under your lawn and eat your grass. Raccoons feed on these insects. Raccoons also love water - not only to drink, but they like to swim and play water games. I was reading this post about this guy who had a problem with raccoons invading his backyard and swimming pool. What I found most interesting, and disturbing at the same time, is that the raccoons were taking a dump in his swimming pool as if it were a toilet. Since then, I have seen others refer to this problem as well. Read this post here, Wondering How to Get Rid of Raccoons from Your Backyard?
