So this is what backyard looked like early last fall.

And this is what it looked like in early spring

We came to conclusion ----- after seeing 5 of them it was these lil critters

Let's just say we did not have many June bugs this year......

So this year the first sign of raccoons and HB had the live trap out.
One evening alone he caught 4 of them.
And one .......

Unfortunately one night there was a snap of the live trap HB rushed out thinking YAY number 5 !!!!!

I heard a crash and HB running towards the house "I've been sprayed ! I've been sprayed!"

I immediately got on the internet to see how to get rid of this stink with HB standing outside on the patio.
Tomatoe juice? Well it will mask the smell but not get rid of it.

Here is the recipe to actually get rid of the smell

1 quart hydrogen peroxide
one quarter cup baking soda
1 teaspoon dish soap
Mix together and bathe (HB did it in the shower)

Use immediately as the mixture is slightly unstable.  Not sure what this actually means but he used it all and then rinsed himself...

Its been over a week since the spraying and a couple of rainfalls. The smell is dissipating .....

ciao for now
