Well, not so much for the coons! We tried all the deterrents and they worked for 3 nights, but last night when my brother went to put Dad's truck in the garden with the radio going, he saw 3 coons coming into our corn. They were bold and brave and pretty much ignored him. He called his wife to bring his gun..C-ya coons. We planted enough corn for us and them, but they brought all their family and friends and got greedy. They are now in raccoon heaven. Get over it PETA!
