If you have raccoons in your attic, the total cost will probably run between $350 - $500 to remove all the raccoons (plus young) and seal the entry holes shut. This
cost will vary, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many raccoons are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary,
if you need cleanup, etc. For tips to do it yourself for FREE, read my how to get rid of raccoons
If you just have raccoons outside, and you need them trapped in cages and taken away, the cost will be lower, since outside trapping is simpler.

Here are three articles that will help give you more information:
How To Guide: Who should I hire?
- What questions to ask, what to look for, who NOT to hire.
How To Guide: do it yourself!
- Advice on saving money by doing wildlife removal yourself.
Guide: Why does wildlife cost what it does?
- Analysis of the wildlife control business, and prices.
Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Raccoon control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every raccoon job is different.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.
You don't want to over-pay of course. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong the
first time, you'll just end up paying more later. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that raccoons cause.
Invest in your home and property by taking care of the raccoon problem correctly.
Customer Email Regarding Raccoon Problem:
Hi! It is our Jewish holiday of Sukkot. We build a little booth in our backyard called a sukkah. It consists of a
canvass around large rectangular frame and has a bamboo roof. We eat in it for seven days and nights. Last year, raccoons got wind of it. We had to move our dinner
guests inside the house. They scared us when they appeared at the sukkah door- an opening in the canvas from which we enter and leave the sukkah. We hired a professional
trapper to catch the raccoons. Every night the pest control agent put out traps. As many traps as he put out, is as many raccoons that he caught. We gave up after three days because it was costing too much.
There was no end to the raccoons being attracted to the food in the traps and getting caught in the traps. This year our holiday of Sukkot will begin on Wednesday night.
Other than keeping the garbage cans tightly covered, and not putting out food on the tables in the sukkah until the company is seated, what can we do to prevent the visit of
raccoons to our sukkah? We have put up a sukkah in our backyard for the past 37 years. Last year was the first time raccoons found our sukkah. Any advise would be appreciated.
Our Sukkah is up again. I do so want to entertain my company in it without fear of raccoons. Thank you so much! L. Abrams
Usually trapping and removal solves the problem with specific problem raccoons. It's odd that you had so many! Was your wildlife operator relocating them
at least ten miles away from capture site? If you don't want to spend so much time and money relocating raccoons, your best bet is to try to prevent attracting the raccoons
by not leaving out food that they can smell. Maybe you'll have better luck this year.
