This raccoon mom and her kids visit at dark to eat my grapes.

Dang they're cute! I might not think they're so cute if they were eating my grapes, but since we don't see them in our neighborhood, they're cute (from afar!). (11/20/2009)
Spray the vines with hot pepper sauce. Critters don't like it. If that doesn't work, tie bags around the grapes. I did this with my peaches, good luck. (11/20/2009)
They are adorable, Sharon! I love it that you don't mind them eating your grapes and that they are comfortable enough to be near you for you to take such a great photo! (11/20/2009)
I think God made them so cute so that it would be harder to get mad at them! (11/21/2009)
That is an awesome photo! It looks like they paused in the midst of a meal to pose for a picture! Cute! (11/21/2009)
I love to see the little bandits in action unless they are fighting and hurting one of my dogs. LOL so cute. Great pic! (11/21/2009)

Well those little bandits sure did mug for the camera! I have some here in Missouri that come out and the young ones are so cute. I know they can be a problem to some but here I just toss them scraps near the trees in the winter months. They have not bothered my dog and do not like it when he barks at them, they run and hide in the woods. (11/22/2009)
I have this book "1001 All-Natural Secrets to a Pest-Free Property" by Dr. Myles H. Bader. Excellent book. He says, "Raccoons do not like to be around dogs. Get the clippings from your local dog groomer. Spread the hair around when you have problems and you will never see another raccoon or rabbit." Hope this helps and try to get the book. (11/28/2009)
