Default Raccoon

OK, I have a mating pair living under my deck; I hope. They may have burrowed under the foundation and might be under the house.

Can't find a critter control company who will deal with them, all say it is too late in the year.

I'm not in the country so can't shoot the damned things.

Any suggestions?

Live traps. Trap them and "relocate" them with a sub sonic 22.

I think your only option is to trap and relocate the nasty little critters. Wear heavy gloves handling the trap with the animal in it too.

I'm thinking a combination of live trap and sub .22, don't won a pair of heavy gloves!!

I worry about there being more than just the two, like baby raccoon, anybody know when they usually birth. I'd suspect it would be Spring....

Default Shawee under da porch!

Borrow live traps from the local dog pound. I find that Coons can not resist fresh crabs. Put one debacked in each trap. Or use Tuna Fish thats canned in oil. Relocate to a Democratic state.

Raccoons generally birth in Spring, around April and May.

I canned Tuna this fall and have the carcase in the freezer. Was going to use it for crab bait, but...
