Do mothballs or ammonia help repel raccoons? - If you are a home owner, especially if you live in more rural settings, you are aware that little critters will frequently try to make a home on your property, especially within your home. Rats, mice, squirrels, birds and other animals find that your property makes for the ideal home for themselves. With a ready supply of food available in garbage cans and gardens, a whole lot of nooks and crannies to find to live, and the protection of your home becomes an irresistible place for most animals.
The raccoon is no exception. They find people's homes to be absolutely ideal places for them to live. Your attic, shed, garage or pile of wood makes a perfect shelter, and your garbage cans are a buffet of treats and food for it to devour. The reality is that you don't want a raccoon living on your property. They are dangerous animals because of the disease they carry and they pose a threat to yourself, your family and your pets.
Most decide to try to keep the raccoons from entering their land altogether, and so they seek out commercial and homemade repellants to try to deter the raccoons from stepping onto their land. Two of the most common ideas of how to keep raccoons away is through the use of mothballs or ammonia. This has become all the rage on the internet, and so this article is to briefly discuss whether this is fact or fiction that this works.
To begin it is understandable that logic would dictate that these two products would work. Ammonia ruins the taste of anything it touches, as does mothballs. These two compounds are also quite poisonous, so if a raccoon ate them they would be sick at the very least, if not dying. These things make sense.
But you need to understand that logic does not always become reality. Yes, you can place out mothballs or ammonia, but are you going to be able to place it all over your property? If you do you are likely to do a whole lot more than deter raccoons. You will likely kill your lawn, destroy your garden, and maybe even sicken your own pets. This can seep into the ground and poison your vegetables if you have a garden, and the sad fact is you may still not keep the raccoons away. They may find a different way to enter onto your property, especially after it has rained and you will be foiled. It is a great thought, but with limited application.
