Portland Oregon Raccoon Control Situation: Hello David, I am writing to you from Portland, Oregon - I have visited your website many times over the past few weeks for helpful information regarding raccoon removal. Your website is very helpful. I wonder if you could please answer a questions for me as I am not finding much help with local wildlife professionals in our area. We had a mom raccoon and babies in our attic until just a few days ago. We hired someone who laid down some repellant, and we bugged the heck out of the mom every time we saw her out of the den (which was often, day or night). The mom was seen by our neighbor running across the street the other day into a wooded area, carrying a baby in her mouth as best she could (they had gotten pretty big), and we have not seen or heard any of them them for several days now, so we assume the mom moved her family some where else, due to the use of the repellant, and our relentless noise-making and bothering her day and night. We are now left with repairing the hole under the roof soffit that led them into our attic, and we are concerned about the mess that was left behind - their droppings! The problem is that the corner of the attic they were living in is EXTREMELY difficult to access. We have a double pitched roof, and they managed to make a home in a tiny corner where no grown person could climb into because of the way the roof is designed and how it comes down low and blocks off that particular corner from inside the attic (smart raccoon for picking such an ideal place, I guess). I know I'm doing a horrible job of describing the situation - the bottom line is, we can't get up in there to clean out their poop! Is there ANY product we can at least try our best to spray through the entrance hole outside that would help neutralize the mess they may have left behind? We have read that raccoon feces harbors many nasty things and would like to do something about the droppings that are likely left behind, although the space being so tight and inaccessible, we thought if there is something we could reach into the hole and spray in directly it would help. Any suggestions you have for products would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time -Tracie, Portland Oregon
