Raccoon Proof


Like urban dwellers everywhere, Toronto has a major problem with it's raccoon population. Our citizens have to do daily battle to keep the pesky critters from tearing apart garbage bins and composters. The City of Toronto's "green bin" programme, which encourages residents to compost food wastes has many benefits, but you can see the lengths my dear husband had to go to to keep the beasts from gnawing through the plastic to get at our goodies. I'll let you know how our fortifications hold.

Wow, that's amazing fortification against the little urban prowlers! I'm wishing you success after all that effort. I do see raccoons about here in Seattle, but have only heard of problems with them getting into backyard chicken coops of friends. They don't seem to bother the bins. We used to see many more very aggressive ones in San Francisco where they would pry lids from metal trash cans in the alleys and feast away. Keep up posted as to how well it controls your problem,

I had no idea that they would gnaw through the plastic to get at the food!
