I have a cord+ stacked on my deck covered with a tarp. I move it up in the last month. A couple nights ago, the cat started going nuts at the door! Upon investigation, I found a friendly racoon. I banged on the door and he backed off a few feet. I cracked the door, and he ran up under the tarp covering my wood. This morning I went out. I hit the tarp with a broon stick, and once I convinced myself he wasn't there, I pulled back the tarp. Found a nice pile of racoon "gifts" in the middle of my stack. I am going to leave the tarp off for a while with the hopes of discouraging him to stay. Anything thing else you guys recommend?
