How to Get Rid of Raccoons

The simplicity of getting rid of raccoons is highly dependent on where youCaged-Raccoon-300x188 find them. Raccoons may look cute, but can cause extensive damage to your property and even threaten the health of you and your loved ones. If you frequently spot raccoons near your home, it may be time to bring in the professionals.

Your Yard

One location these critters like to overrun is your yard. They are normally found rummaging through your garbage and strewing trash all around. For such a situation, trapping is the best option. When you call a professional to help you rid of your nuisance, they will most likely use a wire mesh cage to trap. They will use bait to lure the raccoon into the cage, and then release it somewhere safe and far away from your home.

Your Attic

The second scenario is when you have raccoons in your attic. In most cases when there is a raccoon in the attic, it is a female that is rearing her young. Trying to trap such a raccoon is not the right move. Moreover, there are few deadlier animals than a female raccoon trying to protect her young. In this case, it is paramount that you seek professional help. Getting both the mother raccoon and the babies out is crucial, and should not be attempted without proper training.
