The raccoon situation in my backyard was getting a bit too close for comfort. Those masked bandits seemed to have made it their personal mission to rummage through my garbage cans nightly and leave a mess behind for me to clean up every morning. I've tried various methods over the years, but none seemed to do the trick until I stumbled upon Liquid Fence All-Purpose Animal Repellent.
Firstly, the fact that it's safe around kids and pets was a huge selling point for me. With a young nephew who often visits and a playful pup, I didn’t want to introduce anything hazardous into my home space. The reassurance that it's harmless to plants and animals, and is safe for edible plants, put my mind at ease.
On the first application, I covered the perimeter of my yard and made sure to be a bit more liberal around the trash cans. The next morning? Clean and untouched garbage cans! It felt like a small victory. I was initially worried about the repellent's longevity, especially with the unpredictable rainy spells in my area, but even with occasional showers, it managed to keep the raccoons at bay for almost four weeks.
As the product description suggests, I also applied Liquid Fence to some of my garden veggies. A significant bonus is the clarity in post-harvest instructions. Making sure to thoroughly wash my produce before consumption was a simple step that I could easily integrate into my routine. Though, I'd highly recommend following their washing advice closely, especially if you're dealing with leafy greens.
It's worth noting that this repellent is designed for small mammals, so I didn’t only experience a reduction in raccoon activity. Those pesky squirrels seemed to have found someone else's yard to frolic in, and even the mice, which would sometimes be spotted scurrying around, have become rare visitors.
In conclusion, Liquid Fence All-Purpose Animal Repellent has been an invaluable asset in my outdoor maintenance. No more morning clean-ups or surprise raccoon sightings. If you're dealing with unwanted small mammal guests, especially raccoons, give this repellent a shot. The 1,000 sq ft coverage is generous, and the peace of mind it offers is even more vast.
