Raccoon Prevention Tips
If you have Miami raccoons hanging around your house and yard, chances are something there attracted them. They most often move in because of accessible food and water, and stay if there is a comfortable space. Raccoons are omnivores, and will eat most anything. Insects, bugs, carrion, small mammals, eggs, small invertebrates, baby birds, fruits, vegetables, garbage, seeds, pet food , and other animal feed are on their diet.
Keep your yard Clean and clear!
Put garbage in cans with tight fitting lids, pick up unattended pet food, and pick up any ripe fruit and veggies from you r garden. Do not make bird and Florida raccoon feeders easily accessible. Keep animal feed in secure bins.
Do not make your place inviting to raccoons!
Dispose of any brush piles, stacks of lumber, high growth, weedy areas, and standing water. Be sure to keep the doors and lower windows to any barn, woodshed, garage, boathouse, etc. on your Miami property screened or shut tight. Repair any cracks or holes in around doors, windows, and siding. Cap your chimney. Make sure basement windows close securely, and have screens. Do not leave stacks of newspapers, boxes, or paper trash lying about. Keep trees and shrubberies trimmed and cleared at the base.
Scare them off
Using natural repellents is supposed to work as well. Sprinkle mothball, cinnamon, pepper flakes, or ammonia around your Miami yard. Planting marigold, lavender, and mint around the outskirts of your yard is said to be an excellent deterrent. You can put up moving deterrents to scare them away like shiny Mylar ribbons, aluminum pans on strings, pinwheels, or Wind chimes that provide both movement and sound. You can also purchase commercial devices called sonic emitters that claim to drive the creatures away with high-pitched sounds. These are sold everywhere and range in price from 20.00 to over 500.00. Be warned- there are reports that these devices have been known to disturb some household pets and there are claims that they attract some birds. To scare the Florida raccoons away, you can Sprinkle urine from a natural predator like a fox, big cat (like a mountain lion or panther), wolf, or bear in your area. You can purchase these “scents” wherever most hunting supplies are sold. Plan outdoor activities in the yard often.
Give them boundaries
Fence your yard or garden so that Miami raccoons cannot get in. You should use hardware cloth because they cannot fit through the small sized holes. It should be about 3-4 feet high. You need to BURY your hardware cloth fence at least 6 inches deep because raccoons dig. Angle the top few inches of the fence AWAY from your property to prevent the animals from scaling it. Raccoons are skilled climbers. Many people are fans of an electric fence, but that is a drastic measure that is not necessary. Trim all trees, shrubs, and bushes that might overhang your fence. Avoid piling anything against it to be used as a ladder. Raccoons eat lots of bugs, larvae, and rodents, having them around are not a bad thing. They just need to be controlled. Watch the outside of your house at night to see if you catch a Florida raccoon coming or going. If you fear they are making a home, try lighting up the attic or under the porch where believe they are living.
