Racoons are very intelligent, bold and curious omnivorous mammals, with a clever ability to open closed containers and doors. They're night crawlers, and known for being cunning and destructive.

They normally destroy cornfields, pull off siding and tear openings to get into houses, hence the need to get rid of them.

Here are some tips to help you do just that:

First, deny them food and openings into your house. Restrict their access to birdfeeders, garbage cans, and entrances such as chimneys, which will eventually make the raccoon move to another area.

But, in case a raccoon has already taken up full-time residency in your house, maybe in your chimney, use a method called "exclusion" to get rid of it. This involves waiting until nightfall when raccoons are most active. When the racoon leaves to find food place a wire screen cover on the opening so the raccoon will have no way to get back in. And in case your garden is invaded, use fence wired with an electric to give them a mild shock every time they attempt to climb over the fence.

Send them packing with ammonia. Raccoons are naturally clean animals; they 'wash' their food before eating and continually keep their nests clean. They also don't like strong smells. Place a few Ammonia soaked rags near their nest and they should naturally go away.

Finally, once any of the above methods work for you, and you're sure the raccoons are out, promptly seal off all access to your home, while you repair every hole and opening with heavy wire cloth, steel flashing or solid wood.

This is what some people want. They don't want the critters but they don't want to harm them either. They want to get rid of them naturally. If that is the case, here are a few suggestions:

Repellants - Squirrels have natural enemies with one of them being the fox. Because of this, many manufacturers make repellants from fox urine or something very similar smelling. Other manufacturers  have other products made to repel the pesty little critters.

If you want to try something that you can get at  your local grocery store, try moth balls. This is a quick, simple and cheap method.

If you were to search the net, you would read many many instances of people using moth balls to keep the squirrels away. Back a hundred (or two) years ago, moth balls were very popular. However, as mentioned above the use of moth balls is 'dissed' by many as being totally worthless. Only by trying will you know for sure.

Lastly, you can use a "live trap" to get rid of squirrels. A "live trap" is where you catch them safely in a cage and then take them somewhere to release them.

Depending on how quick you want to get rid of the squirrels you can place the trap out in the yard (or wherever) and prop the door open such that it can't shut and trap the squirrel. By doing this you are giving the squirrels the chance to get used to the cage without being afraid of it.

Then after they have been exposed to it for a while, put some nice bait in it (like peanut butter) and you'll probably have your pest trapped within a short period of time.

You have just read a few methods to get rid of squirrels naturally. None of them are inhumane or will hurt the squirrel. You just have to give one or two a try and see how they work. Some of them are really not that expensive to try so you don't have much to lose, but much experience to gain.

Raccoons are not particular on their diet. Raccoons eat a numerous variety of foods. Raccoons are considered Omnivores, (ones that eat plants and meat.) Raccoons eat and scavenge for food all night, and it depends a lot on where they live.

For example: If a Raccoon lives in a heavily populated area like a city, they tend to eat out of dumpsters, trashcans, will eat pet food, can eat fish out of a backyard pond, and also have been known to eat road kill. A Raccoons diet in this particular location is not healthy, and Raccoons can get sick and be very unhealthy. On the other hand, if a Raccoon lives in Rural areas (country) they tend to have a healthier diet and will eat berries, crawfish, insects, small rodents, fruits, poultry, eggs, small snakes, frogs, and fish. Raccoons have an amazing survival instinct, which means they will rarely starve to death. (Which is not surprising with the amount of junk and waste there is)

Raccoons eat and scavenge mainly at night because they are nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and are awake at night. Raccoons have much determination when it comes to food and will do anything to get it. Raccoons usually scavenge and feed alone, but occasionally have friends join every now and then. They are notorious for making messes and destroying most anything to get what they want. If you have ever seen a Raccoon eat, you will notice how they use their hands. They are very touchy/feely with most everything. If Raccoons have a source of water nearby they have a habit of washing their food. It's almost as if they are playing with it in the water.
