Now that it is getting cold out, many animals will be searching for a safe and warm place to settle. Raccoons are often the critters that decide to crawl in your attic to try and stay out of the snowy outdoors.
Although it is possible to remove raccoons by yourself, there are often many mistakes that people make when attempting this:
1. Wait for the raccoon to leave, then seal off the entrance.
This is a bad idea because more often than not, there are babies are involved and all this ends up doing is sealing the babies in the attic.
2. Smoke it out of the chimney
Once again, usually babies are involved. While this method may get the adult out, the babies are too young and weak to crawl and this method will result in killing the babies.
