Sweet corn is getting ripe and the raccoons seem to be again bad. What is the best bait? I use sardines, livestock cake, marshmallows, and I have heard an egg wrapped in peanut butter is good.

Corn works well. You mentioned marshmallows - they're good. They resemble eggs and they're sweet - two attractants in one.

Bacon grease works well and I have used cat food too.

: -) Yes corn. If they didn't like it - would they be raiding corn patches and fields?

Vanilla Wafer cookies. We used to have raccoons as pets in and out of the house. They will fight over the cookies. Used to have then knock on the back door for the cookies. When they would take them from your hand, their paw would be so soft.
