We've been in this house 5 years. we have live trapped about 20 raccoons . We've tried light , noise, ammonia, but the only thing that works is live trap- so far. Would like to be rid of these for good. This year we built a lanai and they ripped the screen from top to bottom and crawled to the tops of the beams and made my new white drapes filthy .i had to take them down, plus they mud stamp all around the pool. I would appreciate and help other homeowners have had success getting rid of these trash bandits! Thanks!
