Manchester New Hampshire Raccoon Control Situation: I live in Manchester. My house is attached on both sides in a row of houses. My neighbor and I both have raccoons in the crawlspace between the ceiling and roof for the last 4 years. We have already blocked off our vent space with wire screen but somewhere somehow the raccoons are still getting in. After spending hundreds of dollars on a professional exterminator to cage, we only caught two in six months but know there are many more in the space because we still hear them scratching. I spoke with a contractor to open up access to that crawlspace to patch up any holes but he says the space which is less than 2 feet in height is too short a space for any worker to be in there patching holes especially with support beams obstructing the view and work. How do I get rid of the entire neighborhood's raccoon by setting trap only on my own roof? The row of houses is next to a condo building where the trash there is always laid out. I cannot possibly get the entire neighborhood to agree to trash removal just so I can get rid of my own roof's raccoon problem. What should I do? I am so out of ideas! Thanks, Karen
Hi David. I live in New Hampshire and recently bought a foreclosed home and hired a professional contractor to do renovations. We knew raccoons had been living in the attic for a while before we bought it and had built into the remodel to have to attic cleaned and renovated. The contractor stated that he cleaned the attic before removing the ceiling in the home to do remodel work. But after removing the ceiling it was apparent that the cleanup job was not completed properly. I have been working in the home on other areas removing carpet and whatnot but after reading your website(and others) I am very concerned for my wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of my family. The area where they removing the ceiling was not tarped off in any way. Should I be concerned at this point? I've spend numerous hours in the home without a respirator while doing heavy work (sweating and menial labor). Attached are pictures of the area I'm talking about. There is obvious evidence of raccoon feces. Regards, Nichola
