Raccoons and cities

Raccoons typically in nature are found to den in hollow trees, burrows, brush piles, barns and abandoned buildings, haystacks or rock crevices. They are also known to use parts of homes, including chimneys, attics, and hollow areas beneath porches to make dens. Busy cities and towns make a perfect habitat for many raccoons in the modern day, with side alleys filled with dumpsters and hollow areas for them to hide in. Cities have no shortage of food for these animals and so they tend to overpopulate very quickly.

How to protect your property from raccoons.

If you live in an area that is prone to raccoon invasions it is wise to give yourself a fighting chance against them, and their habit of spilling rubbish around your property and leaving a mess. One of the easiest ways to do this is to try bringing your bins in at night or to have a tight screwable bin lid, these crafty pests have been known to open garbage cans with traditional plastic or metal lids. Raccoons have a
strong sense of smell, which they use to find food sources. You can use this to your advantage by using strong scents they dislike, such as hot pepper, onion, garlic, peppermint oil and Epsom salt to repel them. Doing this regularly will deter these pests from making unwelcome visits to your property.
