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!
