I have written about it before and got some great advise.
Today, I met the three raccoons that were visiting me. It was not a pleasant visit. Their reaction to my child's scream and cry was slowly walk away. But I saw how they get to the yard. So I live in La and we have tall fences between each other. On both sides of my back yard is vinnal fence, that is hard for animals to climb. I can see from the foot prints, they do not like using it. But the back fence has lattice against it. This is what they use to come in. Plus the lattice is against concrete fence so it is easy to walk on top. Now since I know how they get in and dig in my keyhole garden for grubs, I want to find a way to block they way in. The lattice is vinnal but has nice small openings between them, perfect for climbing. I was thinking to put on small sticking out wire on top of the lattice, something sharp. Also spray the whole concrete fence with pepper mixture spray that I know raccoons do not like. What do you think about my plan?
I was thinking about taking lattice off, but it is not an easy task. Plus, my plants use the lattice.
