Richmond Virginia Raccoon Control Situation: I see your site and it tells me that everything i have heard will not work and i have a raccoon in my attic that is starting to rip up the wood in my cabniet above my refrigirater. i have called everyone around here that i can think of and everyone tells me its moth balls that will get them out or have to kill them and since that is illegal i have no clue what to do now and i no you are in flordia so its hard for you to help us but is there anything that you could tell me to help me out i have thought about getting the trap but how do i get it outside to get in the trap. i think its only one but it may have a baby i am really stuck here and would really appriciate a response to help me any hints that i could do or if its best to just wait it out till spring i have heard because its winter that is why all of a sudden it is there we have a small hole in the roof that we think is where it is getting in but we sat outside for 6 hours trying to find out where it is coming from and the darn thing is not coming out help please i would really appriciate it. I've just cleaned my outbuilding, its having been a raccoon latrine over the past few years. Oh, my, was that disgusting work! I live in Maryland and I couldn't find anybody to do the work for me. I was wondering if you could give me the name of a biological cleaner I could use to break down the residual feces and urine. I fear the smell will never leave. Maybe you can help. Thanks so much for any assistance you can give me. Kindly, Tracey
Hey David, just an FYI, I've had a family of raccoons in my chimney (it's really just a vent for the furnace) twice now and have got them to leave using a shotgun, which they don't like apparently, I tried the odor thing and trying to put wire over the chimney but neither worked, the light seems to work well and is easy and doesn't cost anything, not sure how it would work in a "real" chimney with a flue though, I just take the vent pipe from the furnace off and put a light (lamp or headlamp) in there and shoot them with my shotgun and they evacuate.
