When a raccoons is chased out of one shelter, it will try many different ways to regain access into the house, attic ,garage, shed or crawlspace. Therefore if simply a live trap is used, the raccoon will return once released.
They are extremely strong and extremely destructive animals. Raccoons can tear apart roofs ,vents, chimneys cap, soffit and even garage doors.
HOW DO WE GET THEM OUT ?
We will locate where the raccoon is gaining access and we will set a special door. When the raccoon goes out , it will get trapped outside and is then free.
This is where preventive work is a must.
After 7 days , we will return to remove the trap door and close the entry point. During baby season, many possibilities can happen
Situations can be more difficult to remove a female raccoon and her offspring from the shelter.
