Raccoons in the Pond!

Racoon in pond

Raccoons can become a pest if they realize you have fish!  These pond predators are brave and clever, and deterring them can be difficult.

Try these things to get rid 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 online.  Don’t worry, they obtain it humanely and give each mountain lion a good pet and love for sharing their urine!  Follow the instructions on the container.  It should deter those pesky raccoons!
