OK here is what I did. Even though I really wanted to get up there and try the pee thing. BUt then I thought to myself, what if the coons like my pee ? And then they come to my bedroom window at night?
I attached ‘bee traps’ or ‘yellow jacket’ traps to a square (12" X 12") piece of rubber tile (heavy) sold at the big box store. THe traps have vent holes all around them and I cut a few extra into it. The traps also come with a little hood which covers the holes so that rain does not get in it. I filled the traps with ammonia. I think it will work since coons dont like ammonia.
I also took sheets of plywood (3’ X 3’) and put nails into them so that the sharp end stick out onto the surface. Kind of like a nail bed. I put this plywood on the corner of the roof of the house where the tree is. If the coons try to climb on to the roof, they might get injured and wont want to walk on the nails, so I think that they will stay away.
In Toronto, you can cut back tree branches over on your property as long as it does not harm or kill the tree. . However, in my case there is only the trunk of the tree that is going straight up and it is on the neighbours side. I thought about adding sheet metal around the trunk to prevent the coons from using the tree but since its the neighbours tree, they wont let me do it.
Well see how my devices work out!
