Mattoon and Charleston Wildlife Tip:
How To Keep Raccoons Out Of My Garbage Cans

Raccoons feed out of the food left in the trash cans. The problem with that is that they will eat whatever they can find in the trash cans and the process will create a lot of ruckus. They will spread the litter everywhere and make the whole lawn look untidy. Not to mention that if the little is spread everywhere, there can be a case of health hazard. So to tackle this problem, follow the below mentioned steps.

Make your trash can fort knox

You have to make sure that your trash can cannot be penetrated by the raccoon. You can buy a metal trash can which has a lid that can be locked whenever needed. This would definitely be discouraging for the raccoons and they will stop finding food near it. However you have to keep one thing in mind. If you buy plastic trash can using screws to secure the lid, it will not be very effective because raccoons can chew the plastic and will be able to damage the can.

Secure the trash can with locking system

This is an alternative to the first point. You can use lock and chain to secure your trash can. Now if your trash can lid isnít lockable then surround the whole trash can with a plastic hose pipe. After doing this, cut the piece of the pipe and place the end part of it under the bin. This would make it difficult for the raccoons to open the can and they would soon stop messing with it.

Set any kind of heavy item on top of the trash can

This is more of a traditional method. Just place a big heavy rock on top of the trash can whenever it is not in use. The only main problem with this method is that the heaviness of the rock. So if any member of the house is having problems in lifting up the rock then they would stop throwing the garbage altogether.

Spraying the interior of the trash can with Ammonia

Ammonia is highly offensive to the raccoons. They get repelled with the smell of it because it smells like urine. So place a cloth soaked in Ammonia inside the trash can or you can also spray the insides of the trash can with Ammonia. You can also discourage them from entering your lawn in the first place by spraying Ammonia in all the spots.

Using raccoon repellent

You can use the granules of raccoon repellents which are available in the market. Sprinkle the repellent around the trash can. Alternatively if you donít like using them, you can use cayenne pepper or hot pepper.
