New York City New York Raccoon Control Situation: Just an inquiry for now: I have seen 3 raccoons roaming around my neighborhood in Brooklyn, and sometimes they are in my backyard at night. I have never had a problem with them in my attic, but I am concerned about them roaming around on my property. Since they are not in my house, nor do I see them on a daily basis, would it still be possible to have someone remove them? I have seen them at least once a month for about a year now, and so has my neighbor. And if so, how much would that cost? Thanks! Monica
Hi my name is Rosalyn and I believe that we have a raccoon that lives in the wall next to my desk in my Bronx apartment. I also believe that she had a baby back there and the mother has left the baby, I have not heard her climbing the walls in last two days and the baby is just crying. I thought eventually when the baby got bigger the mother would just take it some where else after it was strong enough to climb the wall. I was wondering if there was any way you could help get this baby out of the wall. Oh and my boss does not know that I am Emailing he just does not care that it is there. But I do not want it to die in there.
I just read your extensive page on raccoons in the attic. Firstly I wanted to thank you for sharing so much information and your expertise. I have a couple questions remaining. We have a critter in our attic as of last night, and raccoon is on the suspect list. In all your information on trapping, I didn't read anywhere that you would put the trap in the attic itself. Is there a reason for that? My other question is regarding a mother with pups. Would that be the case even in mid August? I live near Atlanta - right now young raccoons would bake in an attic. My husband removed a rather shocking pile of seemingly fresh scat around 2am from the attic, and I've been trying to identify it. Raccoon seems quite likely. We are inclined to try and discourage or trap it ourselves (at least give it a go; we don't have a lot of money) and after speaking with my county animal control, they will take the trapped animal from us. Two years ago they provided traps and would come and pick up an trapped animal, but government cutbacks eliminated that. Anyway it appears not to be illegal in New York City, and armed with the information you have generously shared we'd like to see if we can maybe nip this in the bud. Thank you for your time. Karen (sleep deprived!)
