How to keep raccoons out of your house?

Do you know wild animals as well rodents can be entered into your dwelling? Yes that’s right. Therefore it is imperative to first of all save your garden area from the raccoons and other rodents of the same kind so that they may not enter into your house. While these animals pass through the garden and get into your house or attic, they also damage the garden area. Many people like to plant different vegetables and ornamental flowering plants in their gardens. These people who are fond of growing vegetables in their gardens should also be aware of the fact and should pay attention to it that their garden is not at all safe from the rodents and wild animals like raccoons which are either hiding behind the fence or have made certain hidden underground pathways to their gardens. There are some of the specific ways of preventing these raccoons from entering into your house, garden and hence your property.

Make enclosures around the house
The best strategy to avoid the entry of raccoons is to build fence or enclosure around the territory of your house. In this way they will not be able to gain entry in the garden or get a chance to spoil the vegetables and plants. In some cases these enclosures can also be built by making the electric fences but this is practically not effective because your pets and children may also be affected.

Use chemical repellents
Raccoons can be repelled by using certain chemical repellents. Among these repellents, the most important and useful one is the ammonia spray or mothballs. These agents can repel the raccoons to a great extent because they have got a stinking and pungent smell which can positively deter these animals. In addition to this eviction fluids also have been reported to show effective results.

Install movement detection devices
Installing the motion detector device in the front yard of your garden is a better option than using netting. This will also help not only to protect the house but its surroundings as well. This device senses even the slightest motion of animals within the range of about 35 meters. The timing of this device is also very perfect and takes action within one minute after the detection of the movement. Therefore entry of a raccoon in your house can be stopped with extreme level of precision.
