Arlington Virginia Raccoon Control Situation: I'm a renter and I have raccoons in my attic in Arlington Virginia. I know for sure 2, but I believe there are more. My landlord just had a company put up 2 live traps today, as well as close the opening that they made. They are going crazy up there now, and I have 2 little children that I'm really worried about. My friend was scratched by a raccoon that entered her house through the ac vent, and I'm terrified these will come in somehow. I know raccoons can be smart and strong, and they are banging around. I'm also concerned about the diseases. We have urine dripping (yes, dripping) in between our 2 back doors. My husband cleaned with the solution the Human Society told us to use, and it was better. This morning the smell had returned (after only 2 or 3 days), and so had the gnat's. Disgusting! I saw your website online and read a few things that concerned me. What is your opinion about the diseases? Or any of it? Also, is it common for the Home owner's assoc. to pay for the clean up? My landlord doesn't want to clean it because the company she's going through said, "Most people just allow it to dry up and have no problems." Well great for them, I'm not most people. I'm a mother or a 3 and 4 year old. Please let me know what you think? I've asked the Human Society and (as far as the diseases) they said unless my kids eat the feces then I shouldn't be too concerned. What about the urine though? Human Society didn't believe that it was urine, but it defiantly is.
