Raccoons are driving us, and many of our neighbors, crazy. These fellows are not only raiding our garbage cans but digging up our lawns. Keep lids on cans firmly and raccoons don’t like noise or light. They are noctural creatures. We have been leaving lights on all night in our backyard, which helps.
