Blogger’s Suggestion: These raccoons are scavengers. They think the waste food as their whole day  food. So keep your trashes clean always and wash your trash can with ammonia solution because raccoons hate ammonia. Clean the debris periodically and if you find any raccoons in front of you don’t try to harm them. Keep one thing in mind that any kind of animals don’t disturb us until we do it for them. So make use of these repellents and keep your garden looking beautiful always.
