What do I do to remove a Raccoon? Exclusion is the key to eliminating the raccoon’s den sites, but remember that raccoons are powerful animals and can become very vicious when cornered. Their front paws are hand like, with toes that are long, flexible, and considerably dexterous. Stories are told of Raccoons having the ability to unhook simple latches.

Then, I’ll just Frighten them away!  A variety of materials, gadgets, and devices designed to frighten raccoons and other wildlife are on the market. These include bright flashing lights, loud, sound-producing devices, and water-squirting units, all of which can be activated by motion detectors. In addition, radios, scarecrows, and flags and windmills that spin or flutter in the wind have been used. Unfortunately, none of these are very effective and, at best, may frighten only for a few days, after which the raccoons seem to ignore them, having learned that they present no real threat.  Lets not mention that they can be loud and bright at night and really annoy your neighbors.

OK, then I’ll use repellents: There are a few commercial chemical repellents that are available to repel various forms of wildlife, but none have been effective at repelling raccoons. Mothballs, blood meal, and a wide variety of other home remedies others have tried, but to no avail, as raccoons are quick to adapt.
