Thread: Help, being invaded

    Help, being invaded

    Being invaded by possuims, skunks, now racoons.

    Come to the conclusion the barnwood stored in my lean too is attracting them.

    Methods used to rid creatures

    4 lbs moth balls
    Fox scent
    Flushed under side with water hose.
    Didnt call animal control, as it is $125. per lick.

    Havnt tried traps, hate to catch a skunk

    I love animals, love my carnaries, and cardinals more.

    Resorted to
    using peanut butter mixed with broken glass, WORKS
    but dont like to using this harsh of method.

    The animals crawl all over the barn wood that I have the under the lean too, and crap all over it. I can come up with a wheel barrow of the stuff.

    There is a metal shed next to the wood piles that believe they take turns living under.

    Give me some ideas other than getting out of the barn business. :soapbox:

    Go to the dog saloon and ask for the dog hair. Spread it around, under, in.

    Rids our garden of racoons.

    Possible. How about a motion light?

    I understand that beard hair is WAY more effective. Grayer the better, I've read.

    The motion light won't work. The raccoons at my place just stare at it for a few second, then go on about whatever it interrupted.

    Motion detector sprinkler might work, though. Possums and skinks generally don't like getting wet. Raccoons don't seem to mind it a lot, though.
