GETTING RID of RACCOONS!
A racoon problem is a terrible problem to have. They’re known for their sneaky and craftiness, and in a home, they become Public Enemy Number 1. They’re about 24-46″ of annoyance, and are generally considered terrors because of how they raid garbage cans and wreak havoc on a lawn. They’ll eat many different things, ranging from fruits to frogs. They’re nocturnal creatures, and given the color of their fur, they’re practically impossible for a person to spot. While they do not come out during the day, there are a couple of exceptions, such as bad health. That being said, a human should NEVER approach the animal. They can carry any array of diseases.
Raccoons are found near garbage cans, attics, chimneys, and places below your porch.
- Cover your chimney.
- Make sure your roof is secure, make sure there’s no broken shingles or other places on your roof to access.
- Limit access to the roof; trim hedges and other foliage.
- Make sure your garbage cans are completely inaccessible for any creature.
Live Animal Trap is a pretty effective trap, one that doesn’t even kill the animal. There’s a plethora of different baits that you could use to insure that it works. Fish, bacon, vegetables, cat food, chicken parts, or corn are suitable baits. Once the raccoon is enticed by the bait, the door will slam close. The more traps, the better, as it heightens the chance of getting rid of your pest. Set the traps at obvious raccoon trails. Once captured, release the raccoon at least 10 miles away from the home.
