To keep raccoons out of the sweet corn, put peanut butter between strips of aluminum foil folded over an electric wire about a foot off the ground. The raccoons will be attracted to the peanut butter and touch it and get a shock which will keep them away.
By Judy from Pierce, NE
Judy suggests using an electric fence to keep raccoons from corn, which is a good deterrent. There is no need however to entice the raccoon with peanut butter. I'm sure Judy is a nice person and just hasn't thought this through. This is a bit sadistic and really serves no purpose. The corn is a big enough draw for the raccoons and putting out peanut butter with its strong smell will just encourage more raccoons. We need to realize that all of the woodland creatures have a right to exist and we don't want to cause them unnecessary discomfort.

Any suggestions on how to keep raccoons out of our tomatoes? We already surrounded them with a 5 ft. deer net fence.
