Nite Guard Solar helps stop Raccoon Saga

By Katie Berning
Recent email from a customer: Finally, something that really works! I live on the outskirts of a small town in Iowa and had two summers of hell with raccoons on my back deck and gazebo that sit less than twenty feet from a corn field. I trapped fifteen in a little over two months in a live trap. I was so tired of cleaning up their feces but the final straw was when they tore up all the cushions on my Pottery Barn deck furniture. I'd asked every farmer I knew for their advice but nothing worked. Then one day I ran across an ad for Nite Guard in a catalog. The price was very reasonable, the shipping was free, and there was a 90 day guarantee so I had nothing to lose. I haven't seen a single raccoon (or evidence of one) in the six months since I started using it with the exception of one night when I heard them... read more >

I found it this past Sunday floating in the pond. Took it out and water was in it. Put it on the fence line thinking I would discard it later.

Nite Guard Solar important in COYOTE country

By Katie Berning
Now is a great time to have Nite Guard Solar lights in COYOTE country. Why? As fall approaches, immature coyotes begin dispersing from their den and venturing out to establish home ranges of their own. These young coyotes, as well as adult coyote, may wander into close contact with humans and livestock in search for food. The coyote is a opportunist and will eat just about anything. Data shows that coyote predation on livestock and pets increases in the winter because their primary food source (rodents and other small animals) go into hibernation, which in turn forces them to find other food sources... read more >
