I’ll just Frighten them away! There is a large variety of materials, gadgets, and devices designed to frighten raccoons and other wildlife are on the market. These include flashing lights, sound-producing devices, and water-squirting units, all of which can be activated by motion detectors. In addition, radios, scarecrows, and flags and windmills that spin or flutter in the wind have been used. Unfortunately, none of these are truly effective and, at best, may frighten only for a few days, after which the raccoons will begin to ignore them, having learned that they present no real threat.
What about repellents? There are a few commercial chemical repellents available to repel various forms of wildlife, but none have been effective for raccoons. Mothballs, blood meal, and a wide variety of other home remedies others have tried, but to no avail, as raccoons are very quick to adapt to introduced hazards.
