Raccoons: here’s what they can do to your lawn
I’ve had some requests from people wanting to know how to recognize the kind of damage raccoons can do to your lawn.
This photo from one of my readers shows what happens when a small band of 2-4 raccoons go “prowling” through your lawn looking for earthworms and tasty grubs. The raccoons are usually attracted to
our lush, green lawns in the fall when the rest of the countryside turns dry and brown.
You can’t really blame the raccoons for foraging for food … BUT … there are humane ways to protect your lawn and still get along with your wild neighbors.
I’ve put together a 7-page “Gary’s Raccoon Help” and will be happy to provide a free copy to anyone who needs it.
If you need a copy, please request one under Comments/reply below. Please include your name and e-mail address so I can e-mail you back a copy. And please include your city so I know what area you’re from (I keep statistics on where the big raccoon problems are.)
