Raccoons may be cute, and even fun to watch if you happen to spot one foraging for food at night, but not so cute when they move into your home or other locations on your property. They’re called wildlife for a reason. Not only do they often make a lot of noise at night when you’re trying to sleep, they can also damage your property, their urine and feces creates a mess, and they sometimes transmit diseases such as rabies.

One they’ve moved into your attic, garage, or residence, the only effective way to get raccoons to leave is to use a live trap to capture and relocate them. That’s a job best left to a wildlife removal expert. Homeowners who try to do the job themselves run the risk of being bitten or they may find the traps empty.

Some homeowners use repellants to try to keep the critters at bay, but they seldom work. Raccoons are smart, determined, and, research shows, good at solving puzzles. They’re not easily deterred when trying to get to a food source, or gain access to a structure.

Professionals who are skilled in wildlife removal are your best option. After doing a thorough inspection of your property to locate the raccoon and determine how many there are, the technician places live traps in the right locations in order to remove the raccoons from your property safely. Then, they’ll relocate the animal or animals to a carefully chosen location at least 10 miles from your property where it is safe to set them free.

Once the technician is certain they all have been removed, they will seal your property in order to discourage future nocturnal visitors.

Raccoons are attracted to food sources and locations. Some of those locations and steps you can take to lower the chances they’ll choose your property include:

  • Garbage cans—even those with locking lids. They will open the can, tip it over, and forage through the garbage for food, scattering trash all over your yard. Garbage cans should always have tight-fitting lids. If necessary, they can be strapped down with bungee cords.
  • Pet food. If you’re in the habit of leaving it outdoors overnight, there’s a good chance raccoons, or other wildlife, will visit every night. Take all pet food indoors at night.
  • Inside a house, attic, garage, or garden shed. Entry holes should be located and sealed, and that’s something a wildlife removal expert will do as part of their service, after being sure any raccoons already present have been removed.
  • Chimneys. A steel cap to keep critters out should protect the flu.
