I am a new club member and tried to send questions to you earlier, not sure if you received it so here I am again.
My lawn and soil have been turned up for the last month and half. It may be raccoons?! I have used chili peppers, kept radios out at night, and lights on where I can but they keep coming. How can I solve this terrible problem? Thanks.

I suspect the raccoons are finding grubs at the root level of your lawn. Raccoons typically peel back or roll up the lawn in their quest for fat, juicy grubs. If they find any, they will be back to feast some more. About the only way to stop the damage is to control the grubs. You can apply Grubex or Bayer Advanced Grub Control to your lawn. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Good luck with your lawn.
