This is best accomplished by digging till the carcass can be found and removed, a very long process.

Raccoons are wonderful little critters that are simply misunderstood. Yes they can be a nuisance to home and property owners, but that is not their fault; it is simply their nature! It is our own duty to keep raccoons away from our properties, rather than blaming them for trespassing when they do. Preventative maintenance is the best approach for avoiding raccoon problems on your property, but a little strategic initiative doesn't hurt either!

The traditional preventative maintenance methods include removing all food and water sources outside (i.e. bathhouses, pet bowls, squirrel feeders, etc.), taking the trash out on the morning of garbage pickup day, installing patio/driveway motion sensor lighting or sound machines, and much more. But for spring and summer, you can choose to simply plant some more plants! You see, certain plants repel raccoons because they do not like the taste, feel, or smell of them. Planting these plants can be a fun and effective way to keep raccoons out of your gardens and away from your landscaping. And best of all, it is a project the whole family can get involved in! Continue reading to learn which plants have this effect on raccoons and why!

Prickly plants and foods are some of those areas and items. Raccoons do not like to walk on or touch prickly or thorny plants, like globe thistle, cucumbers, anything in the squash family, rose bushes, and more. Planting these items in your garden or around your home can keep raccoons away.
