Raccoon Trapping

The best way to get rid of a raccoon is a cage trap. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If legal, a healthy trapped raccoon will be relocated with written permission. When babies are removed from an attic, our wildlife specialists seek help from a local wildlife rehabilitation center.

At Critter Control, we secure raccoon trap and set it where raccoons frequent. Inside your home look for signs of tracks or paw prints and raccoon droppings. Outside of your home, look for raccoon droppings, dens, or animal runways. Setting multiple traps in different locations along their pathways can yield better results.
Because the raccoon trap needs to be checked, we do place it in a somewhat accessible location.

Critter Control uses only humane raccoon trapping techniques that are environmentally friendly and ecologically safe to remove raccoons from attics. We bait the trap with sweet items to reduce non-target captures. You can purchase sweet pasts. Fruits like cherries or grapes, marshmallows or jelly work effectively as raccoon bait. 

The raccoon trap is secured to protect the animal. If the trap is outside or on the roof, we typically cover to protect the animal from the elements.

In certain situations, we can install a raccoon excluder. We install it over the raccoon entry point. It allow the raccoon to leave, but it prevents their return.
