Raccoons are not always easy to get rid of, so when homeowners have nuisance raccoons visiting their property night after night, it is understandable for them to look for all the remedies out there. One of the most effective ways to get rid of raccoons is to call a licensed raccoon removal and control service. They retain the proper tools, training, and experience to safely remove raccoons without killing or harming them at all. For those who prefer to handle a raccoon infestation on their own, heed warning that raccoons can be dangerous and carry infectious diseases that can kill or harm humans and pets. It is strongly recommended to outsource a professional animal control service for raccoon removal needs.
And keep in mind that you should never, under any circumstance other than self-defense, harm or kill a wild raccoon. With that said, there is a few safe ways to take on a raccoon trespassing problem in your own. One method is to make and administer a raccoon repellant around your property. You can purchase store-bought raccoon deterrents at an affordable price, but you can also make a homemade repellant yourself! Continue reading and learn how to make a quick, easy, and affordable homemade raccoon repellant all on your own or as a family.
Homemade Raccoon Deterrent
Below is a list of ingredients and instructions for making a homemade raccoon deterrent. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after using or administering any of these solutions. Many ingredients listed can cause eye, throat, and nose irritation if not careful. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
• Large Pitcher or Jug
• Strainer or Colander
• Large Plastic Spray Bottle
• 1 TBLSP Cayenne Pepper or Another Dried Hot Pepper
• 6 Raw Hot Peppers
• One Large Onion
• Large Sauce Pan
Bring two-quarts of water to a boil in a large sauce pan. Add the cayenne pepper, whole hot peppers, and the onion. Return water to a boil. Boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Let it cool completely, and then strain the liquid into your jug or pitcher. Use the funnel for precision when you pour. Use the pitcher to easily transfer the liquid into a plastic spray bottle. Discard all leftovers in sauce pan.
Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands. Spray this solution around the perimeter of your property, on plants, deck railings, gutters, roof shingles, and any other areas that raccoons come into contact with, but you do not. Do not spray this solution on anything that you or your family touches on a regular basis, as it will cause nose, throat, and eye irritations.
