RACCOON REMOVAL

This is a very complex case. This almost always involves an adult female and a litter of baby raccoons. The nest of baby raccoons must be found & removed, and the mother trapped. Here are the general steps for removing raccoons from an attic.

  • Step 1: Inspect the home, and find the entry hole(s), which are very large and obvious.

  • Step 2: Enter the attic. This is crucial. You might see the adult female.

  • Step 3: Search the attic carefully, and find and remove the litter of baby raccoons by hand, and place in sack. Beware of attacking female.

  • Step 4: Use a trap divider and place the live babies as "bait" to lure the female into the cage trap. This is difficult, and must be done just right.

  • Step 5: Relocate the whole family together, at least 10 miles from capture site.

  • Step 6: Repair the entry holes with pro-grade repairs, and fix other damage in the attic.

  • Step 7: Clean the attic, removing all feces, and spray with enzyme cleaner.
