Columbia South Carolina Raccoon Control Situation: Hi, I have a question. I have raccoons in my attic and I need to get rid of them. We need to fumigate the house for termites. Will chloropicrin get rid of them? It s the tear gas used before they put in the deadly gas. It doesn t really work on cats because of the tear ducts. Do raccoons have tear ducts so the chloropicrin will drive them out. It s a mom and her babies. I think they are almost grown but not sure. We tried to trap them but she has already been trapped and someone let her go. So now she knows better. What can be done, what can be used? What is something that is inexpensive? Would like to hear your answer soon. Thanks, Julia J.
Dear David, Approximately a month ago we began hearing noises in the roof our our church's dining hall, since then we have found several large holes in the soffit on the southside of the building along with a dead baby raccoon that apparently fell from the edge of the roof this past week. We are now shopping around and would appreciate a quote if this is a job that would interest your company. Thanks for your time, Nick
It may be my imagination, but I don't think so. My house and garden are located in the midst of big woods. To keep the raccoons out of my garden I have a 110 volt line out to my garden and I have a timer on it. I have an old radio that I put in a plastic bag and when my corn is about ripe (do this about two weeks before you think it will be ripe) I play the radio from about 6 PM until about 7 Am here in Columbia SC. I have done this for three years in a row and it truly seems to keep the raccoons away. Raccoons do not come into my garden as long as the radio is playing. It makes no difference if it is music or conversation. I can tell raccoon damage because they tear down the entire corn stalk. However, when the raccoons are kept out of my garden I think it is the squirrels that take over. They get the ears without destroying the whole plant. I have a low voltage electric fence around the garden but it is only three wires and it does not keep the squirrels out. Have you ever tried to keep raccoons away with the use of a radio playing? Do you know of any way to keep the raccoons away?
