Atlanta Georgia Raccoon Control Situation: DEAR SIRS: I AM AT MY WHIT'S END. NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO CATCH OR KILL THIS RODENT (RACCOON). IT HAS BEEN TEARING UP THE ROOF FOR OVER 1 YEAR. WE HAVE USED THE METAL CAGE WITH CAT FOOD, CORN ON THE COB, AND EVEN SARDINES. WE DID CATCH IT ONCE IN THE ATTIC. HOWEVER, IT WAS ON A WEEKEND AND THE EXTERMINATOR COULD NOT COME UNTIL MONDAY. BY THEN IT HAD BROKEN OUT OF THE COMMERCIAL WIRE CAGE. ACTUALLY DESTROYED IT. THIS THING IS A DEMON. ALL THE COMPANIES I HAVE HIRED IN ATLANTA CANNOT BELIEVE THEY cannot CATCH THIS THING. I HAVE LEFT SPOT LIGHTS ON EVEN A 600 WATT LIGHT. LAST NIGHT IT STARTED TEARING AT THE ROOF AT 9:00 P.M. AND CONTINUED UNTIL 6:00 A.M. IF WE GO OUT AND SHINE THE LIGHT IT RUNS OUT OF SIGHT UNTIL WE GO BACK IN. THEN IT CONTINUES TO SCRATCH AND CLAW ETC. IT HAS TORN INTO THE ATTIC 5 TIMES THROUGH EXHAUST FANS X 2 . I HAVE HAD THE ATTIC AND HOME CRITTER PROOFED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. IT KEEPS COMING BACK. IT CRAWLS UP THE STUCCO AND USE TO SPRING ONTO THE ROOF BY WAY OF AN OUTSIDE SPEAKER SYSTEM. I SAW IT ACTUALLY DOING IT. I REMOVED THE SPEAKER AND FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS IT STAYED AWAY. NOW IT IS BACK. I THINK WHEN THEY WERE BUILDING OUR HOUSE AN ADULT RACCOON WAS REMOVED FROM THE ATTIC. THIS POSSIBLY COULD BE ONE OF HER OFFSPRING THAT KNOWS THIS AS "HOME ". I HAVE THROWN MOTH BALLS ALL OVER THE PLACE TO DETER IT. I LEAVE ALL OUTSIDE LIGHTS ON ALL NIGHT AND HAVE EVEN PLAYED LOUD MUSIC ALL NIGHT. IT DETERS IT HOWEVER, ONLY FOR A SHORT TIME. I AM LOOKING FOR SOME WARFIN PELLETS THAT CAUSE HEMORRHAGES INTERNALLY AND THEN THE RODENT GOES OFF TO DIE. HOPEFULLY NOT IN MY ATTIC. I THINK IT HAS NOT GOTTEN THROUGH TO THE ATTIC THIS TIME. WE HAVE HAD TO FIX 4 HUGE HOLES IT HAS MADE. I WANTED TO PUT THE POISON PELLETS INSIDE MARSHMALLOWS THAT RACCOON LIKE AND SEE IF THAT WOULD NOT MAKE IT RUN OFF AND DIE. LIKE I SAY I HAVE HIRED 3 DIFFERENT COMPANIES AND ALL HAVE FAILED IN CATCHING THIS THING. I ALSO HAD THIS RODENT SIT ON MY BACK BALCONY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. I AM AFRAID IT COULD BE RABID. ANY SUGGESTIONS SHORT OF MOVING !!! WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. SINCERELY, PENNY
Hello. I have been hearing plenty of noise in my attic for some time now in my Atlanta home. I've been afraid to go up there! I know squirrels are dwelling inside because there is a hole near the roof where I see them pop in and out. Most of the noise takes place during the day but you every now and then there's a sudden movement at night. I haven't been able to afford calling someone about this and I would like to solve this myself. I was wondering if squirrels and raccoons could be living up there together and before I go up and check it out what precautions should I take? I believe I could handle getting rid of the raccoons and repairing the entrance but I'm afriad when I get up there something might attack me. Any suggestions you could give me would be very helpful. Thank you, Chris
