One night I found many of them chewing on the refrigerant lines running out the back of my Heating as well as Air Conditioning condenser component outside
I always care about all of the wildlife in my identifiable area. Both of us get cottontail rabbits, chipmunks, ducks, squirrels, genuinely white tail deer, as well as a whole list of other pets native to these parts. My condo stands in front of a wildlife preserve, making the woods just a few steps past my property line. If I ever want to go for a long walk in nature, all I have to do is step outside as well as head to the back end of my lot. Both of us decided to put a salt lick in this part of our property because the deer care about the salt. Both of us can see them from the windows in the back during the night hours if the people I was with and I turn on the lights near the property line. The deer care about the salt as well as the people I was with and I care about the little show the people I was with and I get from the deer each night. Recently we’ve had a family of raccoons that has moved into our yard as well as have been trying to open our garbage cans every night to forage in our trash. After I started using bungee cords on the trash can lids, they couldn’t get into the trash cans anymore. Unluckyly, I kept finding them strolling the backyard at night despite not being able to access my garbage anymore. Since our raccoons don’t carry rabies in this part of the world, I’m not entirely bothered by them at all. That’s as long as they stay out of my garbage, that’s for sure. One night I found many of them chewing on the refrigerant lines running out the back of my Heating as well as Air Conditioning condenser component outside. There is foam wrapping around the metal pipes to protect them from the elements as well as to insulate them from temperature changes. The raccoons didn’t cause any destruction, but it still worries me to this day that they’ll eventually destruction the Heating as well as Air Conditioning condenser.
