Newark New Jersey Raccoon Control Situation: I wrote earlier this morning about the same raccoon. It is in my AC ductwork. I saw it. I have a built up roof with one high region in the center of the house. There is an attic entrance there, but the addition of central H/A and blown in insulation makes creeping around up there a bit difficult. Do you know of a company that will suck out the old insulation, if necessary because of defecation? Will you assess the need while up there and let me know how extensive the ductwork damage might be? I will try your cel when I have a break from the students. I can chat over the email, if you are about. Thanks. Elaine
We recently had the same problem with raccoons in the attic and squirrels in the walls. Animal control in our area would not come to the house to retrieve the animals until we had caught them first! One of the raccoons actually managed to open the attic access panel and found its way into the house.
Hi, I have recently acquired a raccoon that was caught as an infant, bottle fed, and raised in the home with a couple of cats. Now, I acquired "Billy" because of a split in the family. And the person who got custody didn't want him anymore while the other lives in a hotel. I now have him because she was going to call an exterminator to have him destroyed which is an un-except able resolution in my opinion. He was taken from his nest and raised as a human child instead of learning to be self supporting. I'm not equipped to care for Billy properly. I have 6 dogs, a cat, and a rabbit that I'm barely affording at this time. And 5 of the 6 dogs are tiny chihuahuas which could be hurt or killed very easily by a full grown raccoon that has never been around dogs in his life. Anyways, the reason for my email is I'd like to place him in a home where he will be taken care of properly, and fed the proper diet. If you know of any rescue homes that would be able to give Billy the things he needs than please forward this email to them or call me directly. Thank you, Ginny
