I still have a few minutes of Wednesday left so I’d better use them to post this week’s Ask the PeeMan. This one is hot off the presses – just came in the peemail today!
Q. I am contacting you from Nova Scotia Canada desperate for help. Our roof is being torn up by raccoons. For the past three weeks a racoon is tearing shingles, ice shield and 3/4 inch wood to get into our attic. We had the problem last year when they entered the attic through a hole in the eaves, nested and had babies. I was advised to leave them and they would move out when the young were old enough which they did BUT I had many sleepless nights in the process. The hole was repaired after they “moved out” and I thought it was over. Wrong! One has returned and is destroying our roof and this time we can’t figure out how it’s getting on/off the roof and so far has not moved in, when we hear it we go out and do our best to scare it off – certainly not a solution. Trap is not working, loud noises (running a compressor in the attic) and smells have done nothing. Can you suggest a product and application we can try? I desperately need some help. Sleepless and exhausted in Nova Scotia.
A. PeeMan to the rescue!
You need CoyotePee is what you need. The key is applying it after it has gone out for the night. You can use our PeeShots inside and the liquid to spray liberally outside all around where it is entering your attic. Look for trees with overhanging branches, drain pipes etc that might be the climbing point and spray that as well.
