A critter that I have not been able to identify is getting under the house.

When I hear it I run out & either it hides very well or takes off before I get there. I am thinking its a cat, raccoon or skunk.

The grates that lead under the house are quite sturdy but this creature has managed to pull one off (https://www.dropbox.com/sc/vqtrtamh67gpx3w/AABYmrUc0Ogq_rSg3m0bqFpca). It is in the process of pulling out another one.

Is there anything besides stronger grates to keep critters out?

btw this is in SF Bay Area

  • If its a wild animal its probably territorial. You need to assert that that side of the house is YOURS. Go pee on it every night for a week. That will stop them coming over. Worked for me and my neighbors... They don't come by anymore. – Matt Dec 23 '14 at 18:31
