How to keep raccoons out of my garbage cans

If you want to keep the raccoons away, you have to make sure that the home is raccoon proof. Even the trash may be just trash; it is a meal for curious or hungry animals. They are known to make the snack of whatever you put it in the trash cans. The raccoons will not be easily stopped when it comes to go into the trash. You should know what you should do in order to deter such animals away of the trash. Wild animals are not the ones that can be kept as pets in homes. These are also not allowed to be entered in homes, attic, or any place where the human are to move about. This is just because of the threats and dangers which is caused by the wild animal’s presence. The first step is to ensure that the trash is not accessible by the raccoons. You should purchase the metal trash with the lid that can lock itself into the place. You have to know that the plastic trash have the screws that may secure a lid in the place but you should know that the raccoons are able to chew into the plastic bins.

When you are not aware of the bin that you should choose, you have to ask for a person who is knowledgeable so that he can help you to choose the trash bin which is raccoon proof. You have to make sure always that the trash bin is not exposed by not leaving the lid off. When the lid is not able to be kept in the place, you should attach the plastic hose pipe on it or the tubing around its edge so that the lid can create the seal that will be fitted in the bin. You should cut the piece of the rubber tubing or the house pipe together with the one side and slip it over on the other side. This is going to create the seal for a lid and it can make it difficult of a raccoon to pry of. You can put something heavy over the trash can but the problem is that if it is too heavy for the people in the home, they may not like the idea of taking the garbage out. You can spray interior of a trash using ammonia. You can place the soaked cloths in the trash or you may just pour the ammonia in at once. The ammonia has the same smell as the raccoons’ urine and this makes it offensive to them.
