Syracuse New York Raccoon Control Situation: I read your article on the internet about raccoons in the attic. We have a family living under the eaves over our surooms which is well protected and a perfect place for them. We have seen a family - at least 4 adults and perhaps babies in there as well. The noise, to say the least, is horrendous. Fighting, chewing, scratching and making animal noises. We do not want to hurt them, just have someone get them and relocate them. Unfortunately I have two avocado trees beside the house and they are using this as a springboard to get to the roof. I dont want to lose my avocados, and besides, there are ficus trees lining the back yard that they could use. Can you suggest a reasonable cost outfit that will perhaps get these fellas and gals, without killing them, but relocating them who are in our local area? Our dogs go nuts at night barking at them and I am also afraid of the raccoons attacking if frightened enough. The Humane Society's reaction to our call was "they have as much right to be there as you do" Cmon!!! If you have a suggestion we would be very appreciative. Our house is in Syracuse and anyone I have called say they will supply us with info as to "ammonia, fox urine pellets" etc but as you stated, these dont work. Please reply ASAP with some sort of resolution for us. Thank you in advance. Jan - - Thanks for your response. We tried the city animal control in Syracuse and they told us they can't help. I think mom took the babies elsehere, but there are still some living under the eaves and we have decided to just leave them alone. They still make a noise at night as if moving furniture around, but we are used to it. Guess we will have permanent guests for a while, and perhaps they too will move on later. I occasionally have seen one of them going along the roof, onto the garage, and then a fence but they run from any of us looking at them, so hopefully they will keep a distance. JH
