frustrated: how to get raccoons to stop pooping
in my back yard???!!!
We have a fenced in back yard(wasn't like this a few months ago..fenced it in after we paid $300 to have someone get rid of raccoons that were pooping back there...we have no food source at all for them back there).
So we are back to square one it seems. Two days ago I woke up , happy to go out to my CLEAN back yard just to find a pile of raccoon excrement right next one of my stepping stones...I really felt my hairs on the back of my neck rise...so upset i have to deal with this again.
They are wanting to get in there for some reason and I just cannot figure out why. Any advice or ideas? Am I fighting a losing battle?
They guy who came to "rescue" these critters told me that people leave cat food out at night for outdoor cats and this is why they come into our yards( I know at least two houses in our block that do this). There is NO catfood in our home/garage/backyard.
Please help! I don't even want to go out there and I really enjoy my mornings when I am able to garden. It is just really getting me down. Will they ever leave???!!!
