1. Those baby raccoons are fierce!

I had to remove all my feeders and then all my plants from our deck. I slept on the couch for nights as they would climb all over my flowers and destroy everything after they emptied my feeders. The dogs barking did not ever make them look up and they were mere feet away. There were 7 of them. I would go out and turn the hose on them and they would just look at me. Same with the super soaker I bought. I ended up getting a Nerf gun that shot soft balls at them and that finally worked. I have never put out plans since then. I bought a huge feeder that I could barely lift and put all the protection I knew around it. It was heavy and expensive. The next morning it was gone and I have never seen a single part of it since. They are too smart and resourceful for me.
