Sterling Heights Michigan Raccoon Control Situation: We have a family of raccoons living in a soffit that is not accessible. Does anyone handle both the removal and cleaning of raccoons in my area that you are aware of? I'm assuming we will have to cut into the roof to get the Mom and babies out. There is such a strong urine odor. What can be done to remove that smell? Thank you, Elaine
Dear David - We are in need of a raccoon trapping & removal. We purchased our home in the spring and quickly realized we had a family of raccoons in the neighborhood. We have two concerns: 1) Our cat's safety in the evening hours, and 2) the piles of feces they leave around our Douglas Fir tree as well the stairs to our deck. We have been warned that Raccoon poop can carry roundworm and communicable diseases for both humans and for pets. Please see attached photos. Please give me a call at your convenience to discuss our situation and your service rates. Thank you, Julie

My response: The only possibility from raccoons that I know of is raccoon roundworm. So maybe you could check for that.
I saw your web page and wonder if you can give me some advice. I live in Michigan north of Detroit. I have a big hollow tree in my back yard and recently spotted 3 baby raccoons in / on / about the tree, and they are definitely living there. I have not seen a mother, and assume she must be dead or trapped. Two of the babies have turned up dead in the last week. They look a little scrawny, but all of them have (had!) been quite active climbing up and down the tree. The problem I have is the last remaining one - I don't want to harm it, but I have 3 dogs, and I figure if malnutrition doesn't get it, one of the dogs will eventually (Dogs are definitely not guilty in the demise of the other two, incidentally) Can I trap it and let it go somewhere else (there are a few nature preserves near me), or is it too young to fend for itself?
