How to Get Raccoon Out of Your Attic
Nobody likes to have critters in their home. Raccoons invading your attic are a real problem in rural and suburban areas. The think your attic is the perfect place to raise a family. It is secure, dry, and accessible to plenty of food and water. Columbus raccoons will make your life miserable with their noise and mess if you allow them to settle in. the longer you wait the greater chance they have to establish their home in your attic. As soon as you discover these masked Ohio bandits in your home, you must take action!
Here is a series of simple steps to be your guide.
1) Make sure it is raccoons
Examine the exterior of your home for ripped open vents or pulled off siding. Tiny footprints that look like small hands, especially around the base of your Ohio home as they look for a way to climb. Scat (droppings) the size of a medium dog at the base of trees or fallen logs. Scratch marks around the base of your trees and your house. Garbage cans that have been opened and rifled through for food. Low growls (made when they are protecting food) Chittering or snuffling sounds in walls chimneys or attics, or screeching sounds (made during breeding). Spot Columbus raccoons coming and going in your yard or from your house.
2) Find out how the raccoons are gaining access
This is a most important step! You must find their doorways and seal them permanently or they will return. Inspect all of your roof, Ridgeway, and eaves. Raccoon holes will have a large concentration of scratch marks and some fur around them. Columbus raccoons are nocturnal (active at night) so you may see them at dark or dawn.
3)Decide on your method of eradication
You have found where the Ohio raccoons are nesting, and know how they are getting in. Check to see if there are babies in the nest. Their fate is now in your hands. Do you just want to run them off? Will you kill them? What will happen to the babies? You must consider the results. If they are killed, what will you use and how will you deal with carcasses? If you make them leave where will they go and how do you keep them from coming back? If you capture them live, what do you do with them?
4) Now that you have a plan, let us make it happen.
If you choose to kill them, one option is poisonous gas bombs. You must block all the entryways to your attic at one time and secure any vents into your Columbus home. This could work, but it is the best choice. Even if you do not mind cleaning up dead bodies, it will take time for them all to die. If you put out poisoned bait, you have the same results but death could take days. Live traps are a great way to catch them one at a time. This is time consuming unless you purchase multiple traps and place them in key locations.
