Birmingham Alabama Raccoon Control Situation: Dear David: Unfortunately we do not live in Florida but near Birmingham, Alabama. We have had this same "critter" problem since shortly after moving into this rental house over 5 years ago. Although the owner has replaced the roof, he did not have the roofers fix the soffit where the raccoons and God knows what else frequents our attic. They have sounded like "sumo wrestlers" at times, and elephants at other times. Knowing that neither of these could actually fit into the attic through this soffit hole, I suspected Raccoons. We had someone set a trap, similar to the ones you show in your pictures, and found out that I was right. So, we have caught only one so far, and, as I write you this email, another one has found himself stuck in the trap. I am wondering what other options we have in capturing these animals safely, in a way that does not harm them, or any other suggestions you may have. Do we have any options, other than to hurt them? I would greatly appreciate a response. I will also take a look on your website for other trappers in our area. Thank you. Sincerely, Kathryn
David, Looks like our critter (raccoon) under our front concrete steps just had babies. We have tried to rid of the mother several times by trapping with cat food... and by throwing tennis balls soaked in ammonia under to chase her out so we can block it off. With no success. I have called several places to see about them being removed professionally and have found it is quite an expense. May I ask what you recommend? And what your charges may be? We are located in Shawnee KS. Thank you for your time. Candi
