The carpet tack strips seem to have no impact on the raccoons feet. The baby raccoons love the peanuts that are in a squirrel feeder. When squirrels step on the bottom ledge the top lid is lifted so they can access the peanuts inside. The raccoons have no problem with this maneuver. At some point, another animal scares them to climb into the trees. It has a fuzzy tail and may be a roaming cat, but I can’t really tell.

I’m really frustrated! The raccoons don’t bother my four neighbor’s feeders at all and they have the same type of feeders. The only clue is they buy their seed at Walmart and I buy mine from Wild Bird’s Unlimited. May be a case of preferring steak vs hamburger.
