Most would agree that wildlife, while beautiful, is best kept outside of the home. Unwelcomed, furry critters and rodents may gain access to your home through various routes, and when they do, getting them out safely can be difficult.
Raccoons are one of the most common nuisances and since they can carry rabies, instill the most fear when present in the home. Typically, they’ll find refuge in a home’s attic to nest young ones. But the noise, odor and potential to get trapped in your attic, make it an unpleasant situation for all involved.
The safest route in cases where raccoons have taken up lodging in your home is to trap and release them again outside once you’ve addressed repairs needed to prevent them from reentering. To lure raccoons into the trap you should scatter some bait outside of the cage and just inside the trap.
In some cases, a mother raccoon and babies are living in your attic, to relocate them they’ll need to be physically picked up and put into the cage.
Whether the thought of doing this frightens you, or if you’d rather not take the chance of being bit, then you should hire a professional wildlife removal services to assist. These professionals are trained in coming in contact with the animals and most likely have equipment and protective gear to handle the situation quickly and safely.
