    ... below is a list of other garden recipes that some folks maybe in interested in ... provided by my friend Bob Tanem, a local gardener, nursery owner for over 35+ years and radio talk show host in San Francisco (where I've been a guest talking about cavity nesting birds.)

    Raccoon Chaser

    Use this recipe to create an unpleasant experience for your local racoons. They often do not refrequent a place where they have had an unpleasant experience. Try not to have accessible water nearby.

    Captain Crunch Cereal(or similar sugar cereal)

    Marshmallows

    Hot Tai Pepper

    Peanut Butter

    Mix in an old aluminum pie plate and place in areas where they do the most damage.

    What's it supposed to do? Stick on their feet? Repell them? Kill them?

    I think that the question is, what part of it is unpleasant? The pepper?

    Looks like the pepper in the mix will give them a bad taste in their mouth and it is probably highly unpleasant, much like Tobassco sauce in your ice cream (or something similar).

    LOL no but it will rot your teeth!!! I believe its the hot pepper that is to be unpleasant for them and keep them from returning. I'm ready to hit sams club and grab an industrial size cyanne pepper can and just dump it all around the outside of my pen! >and i'll keep the capt crunch for my snacks after the kids go to bed<

    I think what the recipe does... is add something they LOVE (peanut butter for sure) and then something that is HOT... there is NO water and therefore they cannot get the taste out of their mouth or wash down the peanut butter...

    Sounds like it could really work. Probably won't try it unless I start seeing problems with coons, but I definitely would if I was having a problem.
