organic control of racoons

     I have had a client contact me for information about organic control 
     of racoons in his sweet corn.  He has heard from "an oldtimer" that he 
     can spread mothballs around in the field and it will deter racoons.  
     He is wondering if the mothballs can be considered organic and if not, 
     what other methods there may be in the control of racoons.  Thanks for 
     your help.
