    I'm making a mental note of your continual passive-aggressive unhelpfullness towards my quarterly pest control threads.

    Thought I saw the word "Greenpernt" in there, though, that was funny.

    Raccoons are hyper active in the fall looking for food to get fat for winter. Outside of fall they are usually invisible. Once the season passes you won't see the little guys again until next fall. So just wait it out and next time don't plant sod in the fall.

    This guy has dealt with raccoons. :yes:

    Only 2 ways to get rid of them 32.

    Poision them, I don't like this. Their family most likely lived on your block before you did.

    Trap them, you can rent a trap. Current raccoon traps are not very good but if you cut 4 pieces of thin wood (bottom, both sides, back end) and put them in the trap so it becomes like a box. This works very well as the guy across the street has caught 11 since May. Good luck.

    Lol, I at first I thought that said matzo balls and I'm like "how am i going to get them to eat soup?"

    I planted the sod in the early summer. It takes a while for it to root in the soil I guess.

    Sounds good. Left a plain trap out last night (no wood) and the trap was moved, the bait was gone and it wasnt triggered. Little pricks prolly reached through the mesh without entering the trap. little pricks. damn little pricks

    No joke here, honest. If you are looking for a humane was to solve the problem, buy coyote urine and put it around the perimeter of the yard. I guarantee it will keep them away.

    [QUOTE=EtsFan;3248495]Dude.....Be a MAN! Drink a mess of beer and then piss all over your backyard marking YOUR territory. That should work. :rockon:[/QUOTE]

    Actually, you can get predator urine at your local nursery: mountain lion, lynx, etc. Coons are not really too afraid of people or their urine.

    We have some red fox piss that we are going to sprinkle under our roof because we have red squirrels getting in. This morning we woke up to a crash on our roof and I'd guess an owl got a red squirrel. If the owls kill the adult red squirrels
    and their babies are left in the roof we're going to have an aroma problem.

    I also saw a bobcat in the yard last week so maybe he'll help.
