Raccoons can become a pest if they realize you have fish! They are brave and clever, deterring them can be difficult. Try these things to get ride of a raccoon at your pond:
♦ Put in a fish cave for your fish to hide in
♦ Provide plants like lilies and floating lettuce to help hide the fish
♦ Leave your dog in the backyard - raccoons don't want to deal with dogs
♦ Use mountain lion urine. Yep. Mountain lion urine can be obtained from many garden centers or on line. Follow the instructions on the container. It should deter those pesky raccoons!
