Some animal, could be a possum or raccoon, has decided that a certain spot on my wooden deck is now his official toilet. I am thinking that is what is is based upon the size of the scat. We have been left a gift of animal poop in this same spot every night for the past four days (and two other times someplace else on my property). This is getting old really fast and is disgusting. (I am tired of having to debate every day who gets to clean up me or my husband?)
What successfully works to repel an animal? I don’t want to damage my nice wood deck (would cayenne pepper stain it?). I also have no interest in catching it (have a heart trap or not). There seem to be lots of products out there, although most target keeping animals out of your garden not off your deck.
