Raccoon removal procedures are varied by the state regulations and the preferred method for each situation. Live catch is simply being able to be close enough to grab the animal either by your hand (if young enough) or with a catch pole. Most raccoon pups are caught by hand once the mother raccoon is removed.
Raccoon Removal can be Dangerous – trust the professionals
Trapping raccoons and removing them to a non residential area. Raccoon traps are set with peanut butter, marshmallows, dog or cat food, or my favorite is bacon grease. Setting traps in an attic should only be done by a trained professional wildlife control handler that is trained in taking a MAD raccoon down an attic stair step. Homeowners beware, traps malfunction and raccoons will attack you. Leave it to the professionals.
Raccoons can be dangerous to trap on your own – Don’t Panic
Raccoon scat (feces) is easily recognized. It appears to be almost like a small dog dropping. The meal being passed is not always digested and easily identified. Where there is raccoon scat there is a raccoon. Spotting scat on a roof or in the attic is a sure sign a raccoon has taken up residence on your property. If a family of raccoons has moved in under your house, call on Master Services for careful and humane wildlife removal.

EXAMPLE: Inspect attic for animal signs, take appropriate trapping measures, and fix the entry points. $89 service call to inspect the noises. One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give us a call, and we will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Masters Services animal control can get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!
