Re: baking.. now predators

Raccoons are really a nuisance, aren't they? Clever little devils. I'm not sure those electronic devices work, however. Everything I've heard/read said they do for awhile, then they don't for a long time. I've finally deterred them here somewhat by popping them with a BB gun [CO2 pistol]. I try to hit them where their fur is thinnest--head or butt. A couple of direct hits will keep them away until they forget the sting, usually about a month or so. But then they're back.

Anybody tried an electronic pest control device used to deter raccoons,
skunks, deer, etc. Can't seem to keep the raccoons from the bird feeders and have been carrying them in (the feeders) every night. This is a pain esp. as it gets colder. Found the device called Yard-Gard for about $70. online. Seems pretty steep but it doesn't take long to go through that many dollars in seed when
the feeders are cleaned every night. Kathy
