    Princess Auto for electric shocker - smallest one around $40 plus whatever wire you require. Other good and dependable option is shotgun

    You can also check prices on electric fencers at any tack or feed store (horse stuff).


    The other option is this...

    i can blow up a picture of my ex if u like, i am sure they will all scatter . Seriously though, i have heard that they are scared of Coytoes so if you can get a product that spreads their scent around (like urine ) or something maybe that would be a better alternative. Just an idea

    Only electric fence works around here.
    I know people that tried dog and coyote urine, it worked for a while, but the racoons came back. The smell was terrible to people as well.
    You can see videos on youtube how the racoons are playing with the water scarecrow:-)
    Since I put an electric fence I haven't seen any signs of them playing in my pond.
    I have it on a timer so it wont shock my kids during the day:-)
    Cheers and good luck
