What Damage to raccoons do?
The different types of damage which raccoons are capable of are almost too numerous to mention. In urban environments, raccoons are more than capable of finding homes in uncapped chimneys. tearing off shingles or fascia in order to gain entrance to an attic or wall void, tearing up lawns in search for grubs and earthworms, destroying gardens, and upsetting and eating the contents of garbage cans. In attics and wall voids, the build-up of raccoon feces and urine can constitute health hazards to the homeowner. In more rural environments, raccoons can be highly destructive in and around poultry barns.

What bait should I use for raccoons?
Fish, fresh or canned, honey or sugar covered vegetables, smoked fish, watermelon, sweet corn, cooked fatty meat, crisp bacon. Special favorite of the raccoon is marshmallows!

Where should I place raccoons traps?
Locate the trap in an area where raccoons are often observed. Place the trap on a level surface. Since raccoons tend to dig all the dirt up under the trap, place the trap on a flat piece of wood. Dispose of the wood after the raccoon is caught. Position one side of the trap against a wall of a building or in a path commonly traveled by raccoons. Before handling the trap, you may want to spray with an insecticide because they often have fleas and ticks. Wear sturdy gloves to cover your hands, since raccoons and skunks carry many diseases. If there are known cases of rabies in your area, we suggest that you contact a professional animal removal service.

Information about Raccoons & Raccoon Traps:

Raccoons can vary in size from 18” to 46” in total length and weigh from 10 - 25 pounds. They are easy to recognize because of their ringed tail and black mask. The raccoon has a long coat and a fuzzy tail with 4 to 7 dark rings. Raccoons live near streams, lakes, and marshes if possible. But, they can also live in your back yard. Raccoons are found throughout the USA except for some of the western states. They normally prefer the use of hollow trees, caves, or abandoned animal burrows for dens. However they can make a nuisance of themselves raiding the garbage cans and tearing up homes to enter. They will also use your home for dens including: attics, and craw spaces areas beneath buildings.

Raccoons mate from January to March and have a 63 day gestation period. A litter commonly contains 2 to 6 babies. The female and babies remain together for about one year. Although raccoons may live 14 years or more in captivity, they seldom live beyond six years in the wild. In the wild their diet consist primarily of insects, crayfish, mussels, fish and frogs during the Spring and early Summer. During the late summer and fall, fruits, berries, nuts, and grains are also eaten. But, around people trash becomes a favorite food. Raccoons are most active at night and are not easy to see. If you see one during the day, it could be that they are sick or injured.

Raccoons can contract several diseases, some of which can be transmitted to humans or pets.
Rabies is the greatest concern. The eastern states have the highest incidence of rabies in animals. Raccoons are members of the bear family, and are very strong.

Control and Trapping of Raccoons

One of the most common household entry points for raccoons is down the fireplace chimney or soffit. Therefore, to prevent raccoons from entering houses, roofs and chimneys should be well-maintained. Raccoons can easily access rooftops by climbing trees, downspouts, vines, or a trellis located near the house. The access to chimneys can be prevented by fastening a spark arrestor made of metal and wire cloth over the top of the chimney, or by fastening heavy wire securely over the opening. Replace loose shingles, repair any holes near the eaves of the roof or soffit. You can limit the access to the roof by cutting trees back away from your home. Garbage should be fitted with tight-fitting lids that will keep out most raccoons. However wiring the cans shut may be necessary if raccoons start tipped them over. When you are trapping raccoons during the spring and summer there may be the possibility of young present. Be sure to listen at night for the noise made by the babies. Remove them using heavy leather gloves. Or, if the babies are old enough to climb out, seal the hole after they have left for the night. Sometimes, a female raccoon can be encouraged to move her litter by the use of repellents, such as ammonia or moth balls, combined with a light and noise from a portable radio placed near the nest.
