The Q&A Archives: Racoons in Vegetable Garden

Question: How can I keep racoons out of my raised bed garden?

Answer: Raccoons are little devils in the garden. You can try some home remedies such as playing a radio all night in the garden, spraying repellents on the plants, sprinkling human hair and/or talcum powder in the garden, or laying down some chicken wire (presumably they don't like to walk on it). All may work for awhile, a long time, or not at all. If these don't work, the best bet is a secure fence.
