Finally A Solution To Our Raccoon Problem!

After battling and documenting raccoons tearing into our trash time and time again and trying a whole slew of different types of methods to avoid having to pick up garbage left behind strewn all over the walkway we discovered an organic way to deter the little bastards.

Red Pepper Flakes!

Since the Mrs has been sprinkling red pepper flakes all over the lid and top of the trash bags we have been without incident in over a month!  Thank god because I’m such a pussy I don’t even want to open the door to club them over the head with a baseball bat and this seems like  a whole lot easier method than going all Rambo on them.

Saw this guy in the back of a pick-up truck this morning after being caught in a trap.  The owner of the pick-up truck is doing the humane thing and bringing it to the woods where he will pour gasoline on it and let it on fire release it back to the wilderness.

Boom!

I shot up out of bed like a rocket figuring that the maniac (Snoop Maddie Mad) finally figured out how to climb out of her crib and had landed with a thud.

The Mrs, startled said no, it didn’t sound like a small child hitting the floor and we would have heard her wailing.

Then silence and we hear shuffling outside…  GODDAMN RACCOONS!

We’ve been having a problem with them for about a month and last week started putting bungee cords over the lids of the trash cans.  Little bastards still got into the trash.
