Mobile Alabama Raccoon Control Situation: Dear David- Your photos are dynamite and you certainly appear to be someone who is excellent in your profession, and enjoy the humane trapping and relocating of wildlife from domestic residences back to the wild. Greetings from Mobile Alabama. We have been 'tracking' a raccoon(s) through our basement and in between first and second floor rafters for several weeks. This evening we successfully trapped an adult raccoon in a Havaheart trap and released it about 10 miles out of town in the woods. The animal was unharmed in trapping, and appeared healthy, and happily scampered out of the trap into the woods...very happy to be out of the trap I imagine. As it is mid-winter and supposedly northern raccoons don't usually have young until spring, we believe that there are no babies; we have not heard the reportedly loud sounds they would make, but will continue to look/listen. We have also set the trap again in the event that there are several critters around. Nonetheless, we have noticed very pungent odors and are expecting to find a raccoon latrine either in the basement or between the floors of our home. Tomorrow I will visually inspect the basement nooks and crannies, though there is no access to the rafter spaces between the floors. I have two questions for you David: 1) If I find a latrine, or even just scattered droppings, I understand that they are very dangerous and can be hazardous/lethal to humans and pets. Should I attempt to clean on my own or should I call a professional to clean the area? 2) as there is no access above the ceiling, I am reluctant to go cutting into the spaces...what would you recommend? I there away to snake a vaccuum or other cleaning device into the ceiling rafters? Again, would it be better to just call the pros? If you have a chance, I thank you sincerely for your reply... Again, the photos are dynamite and it is nice to see someone enjoying their work...it looks like you do a great job! Very truly yours, Matthew
