This Week's Wildlife Tip: How To Get Rid Of Raccoons Without Killing Them

Raccoons are animals that can be a real nuisance when they start regularly visiting your yard or garden, or worse if they find a nesting spot in a part of your property. They are creatures that can cause a lot of problems, not only because of the diseases and parasites that they can carry, but also because of their scavenging for food which can see them tearing through garbage bags, or even getting into pet food sacks too. There are plenty of reasons why you will not want to have a raccoon in and around your property, so this is how you can go about getting rid of a problem raccoon without killing it.



Trapping And Removing A Raccoon

In order to be able to catch and remove a raccoon, you will need to get a cage trap, which is of a suitable size, and is often marketed as being suitable for raccoons, feral cats and other creatures of a similar size. This should then be placed in an area where you know the raccoon has been active, and where possible try to place the trap using gloves, which will reduce the human scent that is transferred to the trap. You can then bait the trap with a food that will help draw the raccoon in, and most people with experience of trapping raccoons will use a food with quite a strong smell such as tinned cat food, sardines or crispy bacon.

Precautions To Take When Moving And Releasing A Raccoon

It is important to remember that raccoons can carry parasites, and may try to give you a bite when you are moving the trap, so make sure you wear thick clothing and gloves, and put a blanket over the trap before you move it. It is also worth searching your property to find the raccoon’s nest, as there may be baby raccoons that will need to be moved at the same time, as you certainly don’t want them to die and start decomposing in your home. You should also think about laying a tarpauling or other protection on the floor of the vehicle you are using to transport the raccoon as it may try to scratch through the cage.

Excluding A Raccoon From A Yard Or Garden

This is quite a difficult task as raccoons are actually very good climbers, so will often be able to get over many fences, but one approach is to use a fence where the top foot is tilted outwards, which should make it more difficult to climb over. In truth, you will need a firm barrier such as a fence to completely exclude a raccoon from a yard or garden, but another option is to look at removing factors that will attract raccoons. This will mean dealing with food sources such as securing garbage and pet food in solid containers, and also making sure that any fallen fruit from fruit trees is removed promptly.

Problems Caused By Raccoons

There are plenty of reasons why you should want to get rid of raccoons, and one of the main ones is that they can easily tear through garbage and leave a lot of mess in the area. They can also come into conflict with any pets which will often be inquisitive, and may get scratched or bitten by the raccoon, which can then transmit a disease to your pet. Raccoons are also known for digging holes in yards and gardens, and also making nests in dark areas of properties, so there are plenty of reasons that will encourage you to deal with a raccoon problem quickly.
