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 >

All Night Predators Share the Same Deep Rooted Fear

By Jim Meyer
Owls, coyote, raccoon, bobcat, wolf, bear and deer; virtually all night animals share one single thing in common: The fear of being watched. To night animals this sense of being observed by another animal or man creates a huge threat and they will flee an area where they sense this is being done. An animal that hunts or feeds at night will not remain in an area where it feels it has been discovered. Years ago scientific studies were conducted in Austria in an attempt to find a solution to the many deer/car accidents that occur each year. Although a reliable system was not realized at that time, I found... read more >

Losing Sleep Because Coyote are Killing Your Goats?

By Jim Meyer
Your eyes snap open, you look at the clock, its 3 a.m. and the sound of the howling pierces the night. There is no doubt what this is – a pack of coyotes has moved in close and are probably headed for the stock you moved into the north pasture last week. Your mind races: the snares and traps you’ve set better do their job or you will be out several head of prized goats. The stock is probably up and nervous. Should I head out with the gun? How many times have you experienced this or something similar in the past? Night predators are not evil creatures. They are merely living their lives the best they can, like the rest of us. But to a goat raiser - coyote, wolf, bobcat and bear are anything but welcome when you have time and money invested. read more >
