Raccoon Latrines

Asked December 13, 2020, 10:57 PM EST

How do I prevent raccoons from using my yard as a latrine? They leave their scat all over the yard. They used to do it under the deck but I sealed that off, now they just go anywhere in the back yard. This has been going on for years.

Thank you for your question. These nuisance wildlife are probably attracted to something in your yard other than free toilet paper. Perhaps the following Extension publication will give you some help: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn74116.html Good luck!
