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.

How to Clean Your Attic After You've Had Bats?

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.
