If you are experiencing problems with raccoons, you should know that you are not alone. Raccoons are a nuisance for millions of homeowners and businesses. Raccoons will often breach into an attic to have their young in the spring and summer. Removing raccoons can be very dangerous if not performed properly. Professional animal control specialists who perform that type of work are required to go through extensive training. Many homeowners who decide to capture raccoons on their own end up with a raccoon in a trap and then they are not sure what to do with the animal after capture. Each state has different laws regarding relocating raccoons, so be sure to check with your state's wildlife agency before tackling it on on your own.
The most humane and efficient way to capture raccoons is by using live traps. It is very important that the trap is set in a place that will not target any other animals. The location of the trap and type of bait are very important. Raccoons will eat anything, so use a bait that doesn't have a strong smell so that you are targeting "your raccoon". If you are not successful after a couple nights, it doesn't necessarily mean that you are doing it incorrectly, it could mean that it's not hungry by the time it gets to your trap. It could be trap shy, meaning it has been trapped before, or it simply doesn't want to eat what you are offering. Trapping can take time, which is why it called trapping, not catching.
