Raccoon​ ​Removal​ ​and​ ​Control Raccoons​ ​are​ ​usually​ ​classified​ ​as​ ​a​ ​pest​ ​species​ ​due​ ​to​ ​their​ ​habits​ ​of​ ​living​ ​in​ ​human dwellings.​ ​The​ ​most​ ​common​ ​complaints​ ​include​ ​the​ ​following: • Raccoons​ ​living​ ​in​ ​the​ ​attic • Raccoons​ ​living​ ​in​ ​the​ ​chimney • Tipping​ ​over​ ​garbage​ ​cans • Stealing​ ​pet​ ​food​ ​or​ ​bird​ ​seed • Sick,​ ​potentially​ ​rabid​ ​raccoon • Presence​ ​is​ ​alarming​ ​dogs/pets For​ ​these​ ​reasons,​ ​many​ ​people​ ​wish​ ​to​ ​have​ ​this​ ​nuisance​ ​animal​ ​trapped​ ​and​ ​removed.

Since​ ​it's​ ​a​ ​very​ ​common​ ​problem,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​here​ ​an​ ​advice​ ​article​ ​with​ ​photos​ ​on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​get raccoons​ ​out​ ​of​ ​the​ ​attic.​ ​Please​ ​read​ ​this​ ​guide​ ​-​ ​a​ ​raccoon​ ​in​ ​your​ ​attic​ ​or​ ​house​ ​is​ ​almost certainly​ ​a​ ​female​ ​with​ ​a​ ​litter​ ​of​ ​young.​ ​The​ ​job​ ​is​ ​often​ ​complex,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​worst​ ​thing​ ​you​ ​can do​ ​is​ ​simply​ ​set​ ​down​ ​a​ ​cage​ ​trap​ ​on​ ​the​ ​ground. NUISANCE​ ​CONCERNS:​ ​Raccoons​ ​are​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​commonly​ ​dealt​ ​with​ ​nuisance animals.​ ​They​ ​have​ ​adapted​ ​to​ ​living​ ​with​ ​humans.​ ​They​ ​have​ ​learned​ ​that​ ​garbage​ ​cans​ ​and dumpsters​ ​are​ ​excellent​ ​sources​ ​of​ ​food,​ ​and​ ​that​ ​houses​ ​are​ ​excellent​ ​habitat.​ ​A​ ​mother

raccoon​ ​will​ ​often​ ​tear​ ​a​ ​hole​ ​in​ ​a​ ​roof​ ​to​ ​access​ ​an​ ​attic,​ ​where​ ​they​ ​will​ ​make​ ​quite​ ​a​ ​mess​ ​and a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​noise.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​raccoon​ ​in​ ​the​ ​attic,​ ​it's​ ​going​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​big​ ​mess​ ​and​ ​leave​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of droppings.​ ​Click​ ​here​ ​for​ ​photos​ ​of​ ​raccoon​ ​poop.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​strong​ ​animals,​ ​and​ ​once​ ​inside​ ​an attic,​ ​they​ ​often​ ​tear​ ​off​ ​insulation​ ​paper,​ ​rip​ ​open​ ​ducts,​ ​tear​ ​insulation​ ​off​ ​pipes,​ ​etc.​ ​Here​ ​are some​ ​photos​ ​of:​ ​raccoon​ ​damage​ ​inside​ ​an​ ​attic.​ ​They​ ​will​ ​search​ ​hard​ ​for​ ​food,​ ​and​ ​are​ ​fond​ ​of tipping​ ​over​ ​trash​ ​cans,​ ​raiding​ ​dumpsters,​ ​and​ ​stealing​ ​pet​ ​food.​ ​They​ ​will​ ​often​ ​break​ ​into​ ​a screened-in​ ​porch​ ​to​ ​get​ ​pet​ ​food.​ ​It's​ ​common​ ​for​ ​raccoons​ ​to​ ​poop​ ​in​ ​a​ ​swimming​ ​pool.​ ​They carry​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​parasites​ ​and​ ​diseases​ ​that​ ​can​ ​affect​ ​people​ ​or​ ​pets.

RACCOON​ ​BIOLOGY:​ ​(Procyon​ ​lotor)​ ​Raccoons​ ​are​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​recognize​ ​with​ ​their​ ​distinctive black​ ​mask​ ​and​ ​ringed​ ​tail.​ ​Adults​ ​range​ ​from​ ​10​ ​lbs​ ​on​ ​up,​ ​with​ ​some​ ​reaching​ ​over​ ​40lbs. They​ ​can​ ​live​ ​up​ ​to​ ​12​ ​years​ ​in​ ​the​ ​wild,​ ​though​ ​average​ ​life​ ​spans​ ​average​ ​closer​ ​to​ ​5-6​ ​years. Raccoons​ ​mate​ ​in​ ​the​ ​winter,​ ​around​ ​December,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​females​ ​give​ ​birth​ ​to​ ​an​ ​average​ ​of​ ​3-5 young.​ ​A​ ​mother​ ​raccoon​ ​is​ ​very​ ​protective​ ​of​ ​its​ ​litter​ ​of​ ​3-5​ ​young,​ ​usually​ ​born​ ​in​ ​the​ ​spring time.​ ​Like​ ​many​ ​mammals,​ ​they​ ​are​ ​primarily​ ​nocturnal,​ ​though​ ​some​ ​people​ ​spot​ ​them​ ​during the​ ​day,​ ​often​ ​when​ ​in​ ​search​ ​of​ ​food.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​omnivores,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​eat​ ​almost​ ​anything​ ​they can​ ​get​ ​those​ ​crafty​ ​hands​ ​on.

RACCOON​ ​BEHAVIOR:​ ​They​ ​are​ ​very​ ​common​ ​animals,​ ​particularly​ ​in​ ​urban​ ​areas.​ ​They​ ​are well​ ​adapted​ ​for​ ​survival​ ​in​ ​cities.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​excellent​ ​climbers,​ ​and​ ​they​ ​have​ ​very​ ​nimble hands.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​also​ ​strong,​ ​and​ ​they​ ​often​ ​explore,​ ​tearing​ ​new​ ​areas​ ​open​ ​in​ ​search​ ​of​ ​food and​ ​shelter.​ ​They​ ​like​ ​to​ ​den​ ​in​ ​trees,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​love​ ​to​ ​den​ ​in​ ​attics. RACCOON​ ​DISEASES:​ ​They​ ​are​ ​a​ ​common​ ​carrier​ ​of​ ​rabies,​ ​a​ ​potentially​ ​fatal​ ​disease. They​ ​also​ ​carry​ ​canine​ ​distemper,​ ​which​ ​can​ ​kill​ ​your​ ​dog.​ ​Their​ ​feces​ ​may​ ​contain​ ​raccoon roundworm,​ ​the​ ​spores​ ​of​ ​which​ ​humans​ ​can​ ​breath​ ​in​ ​and​ ​become​ ​seriously​ ​infected​ ​by,​ ​so​ ​it is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​capture​ ​raccoons​ ​using​ ​human​ ​habitat.​ ​Click​ ​the​ ​image​ ​to​ ​the​ ​left​ ​to​ ​visit​ ​Rabies Control​ ​Website​ ​for​ ​more​ ​information​ ​on​ ​this​ ​disease. HOW​ ​DO​ ​I​ ​GET​ ​RID​ ​OF​ ​RACCOONS?​ ​The​ ​only​ ​real​ ​means​ ​of​ ​getting​ ​rid​ ​of​ ​raccoons​ ​is through​ ​trapping​ ​and​ ​removal​ ​of​ ​the​ ​animals,​ ​and​ ​exclusion​ ​repairs​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​them​ ​out​ ​in​ ​the future.​ ​If​ ​you've​ ​got​ ​raccoons​ ​in​ ​your​ ​attic,​ ​it's​ ​important​ ​that​ ​the​ ​wildlife​ ​operator​ ​search​ ​for​ ​a litter​ ​of​ ​baby​ ​raccoons,​ ​and​ ​remove​ ​them​ ​by​ ​hand​ ​before​ ​trapping​ ​and​ ​removing​ ​the​ ​female raccoon.​ ​If​ ​it's​ ​just​ ​raccoons​ ​outside​ ​causing​ ​trouble,​ ​they​ ​can​ ​be​ ​trapped​ ​and​ ​removed,​ ​but beware,​ ​they'll​ ​often​ ​dig​ ​and​ ​grab​ ​anything​ ​within​ ​a​ ​few​ ​inches​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cage​ ​trap.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​also some​ ​lethal​ ​raccoon​ ​traps,​ ​but​ ​they're​ ​not​ ​often​ ​used​ ​or​ ​even​ ​legal​ ​in​ ​all​ ​states.​ ​Here​ ​is​ ​some information​ ​about​ ​how​ ​to​ ​trap​ ​a​ ​raccoon​ ​and​ ​some​ ​more​ ​information​ ​including​ ​raccoon​ ​trapping tips.

I​ ​also​ ​have​ ​some​ ​additional​ ​information​ ​and​ ​photos​ ​about​ ​how​ ​to​ ​get​ ​rid​ ​of​ ​raccoons​ ​in​ ​the​ ​attic and​ ​house,​ ​yard,​ ​tree,​ ​roof,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​often​ ​a​ ​very​ ​difficult​ ​and​ ​complex​ ​wildlife​ ​control​ ​procedure. CAN'T​ ​I​ ​JUST​ ​USE​ ​A​ ​REPELLENT?​ ​There​ ​is​ ​no​ ​registered​ ​or​ ​effective​ ​raccoon​ ​repellent available.​ ​Here​ ​is​ ​a​ ​raccoon​ ​repellent​ ​analysis​ ​that​ ​I​ ​wrote.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​find​ ​some​ ​products​ ​on​ ​the

market,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​mothball-based​ ​or​ ​urine-based​ ​repellents,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​are​ ​bogus.​ ​Go​ ​ahead​ ​and try​ ​them.​ ​And​ ​those​ ​high-pitch​ ​noisemakers,​ ​also​ ​called​ ​ultrasonic​ ​sound​ ​emitters,​ ​do​ ​not​ ​work. There​ ​is​ ​no​ ​quick​ ​and​ ​easy​ ​fix​ ​when​ ​it​ ​comes​ ​to​ ​raccoon​ ​removal​ ​and​ ​control.​ ​It's​ ​best​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a professional​ ​trap​ ​and​ ​remove​ ​the​ ​animals​ ​properly. HOW​ ​TO​ ​KEEP​ ​RACCOONS​ ​AWAY​ ​FROM​ ​PROPERTY?​ ​It's​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​raccoons​ ​from accessing​ ​your​ ​property.​ ​It​ ​would​ ​take​ ​a​ ​special​ ​fence​ ​to​ ​prevent​ ​them​ ​from​ ​climbing​ ​it​ ​-​ ​they​ ​are amazing​ ​climbers.​ ​And​ ​there​ ​are​ ​no​ ​machines​ ​or​ ​devices​ ​that​ ​can​ ​keep​ ​them​ ​away​ ​-​ ​products such​ ​as​ ​flashing​ ​lights,​ ​sound​ ​machines,​ ​and​ ​water​ ​sprinklers​ ​have​ ​demonstrated​ ​no effectiveness.​ ​I've​ ​already​ ​discussed​ ​the​ ​ineffectiveness​ ​of​ ​repellents​ ​such​ ​as​ ​sprays​ ​or powders.​ ​The​ ​truth​ ​here​ ​is​ ​that​ ​raccoons​ ​on​ ​your​ ​property​ ​or​ ​in​ ​your​ ​yard​ ​are​ ​not​ ​really​ ​a problem.​ ​The​ ​problem​ ​is​ ​that​ ​they​ ​are​ ​interacting​ ​with​ ​some​ ​part​ ​of​ ​your​ ​property​ ​that​ ​you​ ​don't want,​ ​right?​ ​Like,​ ​they're​ ​getting​ ​into​ ​your​ ​garbage,​ ​or​ ​eating​ ​your​ ​birdseed,​ ​or​ ​living​ ​under​ ​your shed​ ​or​ ​porch,​ ​or​ ​tearing​ ​up​ ​your​ ​new​ ​sod,​ ​or​ ​pooping​ ​in​ ​your​ ​pool,​ ​or​ ​eating​ ​your​ ​crops,​ ​or killing​ ​your​ ​decorative​ ​goldfish,​ ​or​ ​threating​ ​your​ ​cat,​ ​and​ ​so​ ​on.​ ​That's​ ​the​ ​key​ ​-​ ​something about​ ​your​ ​property​ ​is​ ​attracting​ ​the​ ​raccoons!​ ​The​ ​best​ ​way​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​them​ ​away​ ​is​ ​by eliminating​ ​the​ ​attractive​ ​source,​ ​or​ ​by​ ​making​ ​it​ ​inaccessible.​ ​If​ ​they​ ​are​ ​getting​ ​into​ ​your​ ​house, seal​ ​shut​ ​the​ ​entry​ ​holes!​ ​If​ ​they​ ​are​ ​eating​ ​your​ ​pet's​ ​food,​ ​bring​ ​the​ ​pet​ ​food​ ​indoors.​ ​Read more​ ​tips​ ​for​ ​how​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​raccoons​ ​away​ ​here.

Raccoon​ ​Email​ ​From​ ​Reader:​ ​Morning​ ​sir,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​&​ ​have​ ​had​ ​a​ ​raccoon​ ​in​ ​the​ ​ceiling​ ​for​ ​about three​ ​years​ ​now.​ ​I​ ​don't​ ​own​ ​the​ ​house​ ​thank​ ​GOD,​ ​I​ ​rent​ ​here.​ ​I've​ ​discussed​ ​this​ ​issue​ ​with​ ​the owner​ ​of​ ​the​ ​property​ ​on​ ​numerous​ ​occasions.​ ​I've​ ​seen​ ​the​ ​raccoon​ ​just​ ​as​ ​I've​ ​seen​ ​the squirrels​ ​&​ ​possums​ ​that​ ​roam​ ​the​ ​area​ ​(not​ ​sure​ ​which​ ​is​ ​up​ ​there).​ ​They​ ​have​ ​disturbed​ ​the chimney​ ​brick​ ​of​ ​the​ ​next​ ​house​ ​as​ ​well.​ ​I​ ​can​ ​hear​ ​them​ ​moving​ ​it.​ ​Honestly,​ ​I'm​ ​afraid.​ ​I​ ​can move​ ​but​ ​I'd​ ​prefer​ ​NOT​ ​too​ ​@​ ​the​ ​moment​ ​if​ ​I​ ​can​ ​help​ ​it​ ​(time​ ​&​ ​job​ ​constraints).​ ​Finally,​ ​the landlord​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​send​ ​out​ ​two​ ​carpenters​ ​today​ ​or​ ​this​ ​weekend​ ​to​ ​open​ ​the​ ​ceiling​ ​&​ ​place​ ​a trap​ ​(soft​ ​&​ ​unsure​ ​I​ ​decline).​ ​They​ ​intend​ ​to​ ​re-seal​ ​the​ ​ceiling​ ​with​ ​piece​ ​of​ ​plywood​ ​screwed in.​ ​I​ ​don't​ ​know​ ​about​ ​this​ ​method.​ ​They've​ ​had​ ​NO​ ​success​ ​with​ ​this​ ​same​ ​trap​ ​that​ ​they​ ​laid​ ​on the​ ​roof​ ​(so​ ​they​ ​say).​ ​What​ ​do​ ​u​ ​think?​ ​I'm​ ​positive​ ​that​ ​they​ ​know​ ​nothing​ ​about​ ​what​ ​they​ ​are doing.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​my​ ​health​ ​@​ ​stake.​ ​Any​ ​advice​ ​or​ ​help​ ​on​ ​the​ ​subject​ ​will​ ​so​ ​be​ ​appreciated.​ ​I've called​ ​&​ ​left​ ​a​ ​message​ ​with​ ​the​ ​gentleman​ ​u​ ​had​ ​listed​ ​for​ ​Philadelphia​ ​are.​ ​Please​ ​help!​ ​:(​ ​~ Herb​ ​~ Our​ ​Response:​ ​DO​ ​NOT​ ​HAVE​ ​THE​ ​CARPENTERS​ ​DO​ ​IT.​ ​They​ ​are​ ​no​ ​more​ ​qualified​ ​to​ ​do dentistry.​ ​Seriously.​ ​There's​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​complex​ ​issues​ ​with​ ​raccoons​ ​in​ ​the​ ​ceiling,​ ​and​ ​the carpenter,​ ​who​ ​has​ ​no​ ​experience​ ​in​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​them,​ ​will​ ​likely​ ​make​ ​things​ ​worse.​ ​They probably​ ​won't​ ​trap​ ​anything,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​raccoon​ ​may​ ​break​ ​into​ ​the​ ​house​ ​if​ ​it​ ​has​ ​no​ ​other​ ​way out,​ ​and​ ​if​ ​it​ ​is​ ​improperly​ ​removed,​ ​what​ ​about​ ​the​ ​baby​ ​raccoons​ ​that​ ​are​ ​likely​ ​up​ ​there?​ ​You need​ ​a​ ​wildlife​ ​pro,​ ​and​ ​Kris​ ​in​ ​Philadelphia​ ​is​ ​very​ ​good.​ ​Try​ ​to​ ​hire​ ​him.

If you have a raccoon in the attic, it's going to make a big mess and leave a lot ... beware, they'll often dig and grab anything within a few inches of the cage trap.
