Coons in my worm bed

19 Dec

For a several days I had noticed my rugs pulled back and could tell some critter was rooting around in my worm beds.  To figure out just what we were dealing with, my daughter and I set up our game cam to catch the rascal in the act.WGI_0061 WGI_0062

It was not a huge surprise after checking the camera, that the culprit was a masked bandit.  Coon proofing can be challenging, and my attempts have failed to keep them out.  Putting some heavier objects over the carpet seemed to work in a few places, but they seem to find a weak spot.

Coon proofing recommendations:

Cover your outdoor beds with plywood or hardware cloth should work.

Keep your dogs out at night.  (Our dogs are sissies and sleep inside.)

We ended up catching the rascal the other night, and for now we are critter free.
