How to get raccoons out of attic
The warm, dry, dark attic is one of those places where raccoons and other critters like to create dens away from the dangers of the outside world. Getting raccoons out of the attic can be difficult and dangerous. The first thing you need to do, if you’re going to ignore any laws that state you can’t kill raccoons, is to find where the animal is coming in and out of the house. Racoons will leave a sizeable hole in your roof where they are entering; get out you ladder and go investigate. Do not close up the hole, even if you are certain the raccoon isn’t currently in the attic. There will probably be a litter of babies inside, and the female raccoon will be back to retrieve them. Anything you put up will be torn down unless it is extremely sturdy. Even then, if the raccoon can’t get in there, she’ll move to a new location and attempt to tear that area open. The best way to handle this is to wait for the raccoon to re-enter the home and then attach a cage trap to the exit hole. When you enter the attic, this should scare the mother through the opening and into the cage trap.
