South Bend Indiana Raccoon Control Situation: Hi David: I really enjoyed your website. I have a great love of the wild critters displaced by my home and really want the humane treatment. I think I have several "tenants" in my attic. Not sure, but I know there have been rats, think there may be squirrels and possibly even a raccoon family. If it were not for the electrical, duct and health concerns, I would not care. (I've heard that different species won't live in the same area, but my attic is HUGE and has a divider, so who knows!)But last week I looked up at my A/C vent and there was insulation hanging down! OK, so it's got to stop before I get sick or my house burns down. I look forward to making an appointment for you to come out and check it out. I also have noticed just this summer, that the wire mesh in the soffits have been breached. I'm sure there could be activity under the house too! Please let me know when you could come out, any day except Fridays in October (I'm morking on my certification as a Master Florida Naturalist. So humane is really a vital issue to me. Thanks! Heidi
i still have one question. i have always loved coons and when younger wanted one for a pet. BUT, around 1984, when i learned that a high percentage of them carry a parasite that is incurable and fatal to humans i lost all interest in being around them. since this parasite is passed through their feces and lives for years, i am looking at several of my future projects under the house with trepidation as they hang out under the house. anyway, there was a mom with 5 babies but they're all grown now and for all i know she might have another litter. bottom line, i have at least one adult and my question is about trapping multiplemultiple adults. if an adult coon sees another coon in a trap do you have ANY KIND OF CHANCE to trap more than one coon if the other adults see the first coon trapped? i'm wondering if they are too smart for that. thx again for the web article, jim
