Answer: Some gardeners report success using repellents such as hot pepper wax or other commercial sprays, however raccoons are very persistent pests. In my experience it is more dependable in the long run to either fence them out using electrified fencing or to trap and remove them. Since they can carry rabies, it is sometimes advisable to do that. You might want to consult with your local animal control and/or game commission for advice.
