Charlotte North Carolina Raccoon Control Situation: David- Any suggestions about getting from one end of the attic to the other end without falling through the ceiling? I've set a live trap on the end of the attic I can access easily (not the raccoons end) with a can of wet cat food as bait... it's not been touched. I can see the coon sometimes, but I don't know where it's getting in. Then I set the trap outside in the yard, but nothing. Not even my cat is interested. The coon is home when I'm home. If get too close, what should I expect? My house is off the ground - should I try the trap under the house or on the roof? Thanks for any suggestion, Jan
I enjoyed your website, and wish you were able to service Charlotte, NC. As I sit here researching my squirrel issue, I can hear them waking up above my head. I have the triple wammy of several types of animals in my attic. I have rats, squirrels, and probably a big raccoon (because there are large cat like poops near the hole they ripped into our attic. I have employed a professional to set traps for the rats, and to relocate the raccoon. The plan for the squirrels is to relocate the raccoons first, then find a time when I don't hear them, and then close the hole. I am sad that we have had to relocate a young opossum and raccoon so far, as we wait to catch the big raccoon. I wish we didn't need to bother them. I also wish that the service I'm using had those cool repeater/exit traps for squirrels. Those look very effective. We spent a lot of money replacing the attic insulation, and sealing up our house, only to have them find a new way in. I am going to survey my house each week from now on, to avoid this complicated problem. Thanks again for sharing info on your important work. Sincerely, Raika
