    The raccoon has a nest under my roof. It has to come down sometime, I thought a trap at the bottom of the tree would be a good idea.

    Can you help me out?

    The state has issues with the transport of wildlife like raccoons which makes it problematic to “take it away” in a non-lethal manner (you need permits). Trapping and then preventing re-entry is preferable.



    The raccoon quite possibly has babies too. As Chemist stated it would be best to wait until all are out and then fix the roof so that the raccoons can’t reenter.



    Thank you all for your responses. I am going to hire someone to remove it. I’m afraid it may have babies.



    Well that company will be more than to take your money trap that raccoon AND KILL IT. Then if there are kits left they will die in your roof.

    Leave the poor raccoon alone, “we’ have completely destroyed their habitat. Where else are they supposed to go? oh yeah heaven:)



    I agree with Hammerhead. Everything has babies right now, and the raccoons will leave once the young are out foraging with the adults. Close up the access point once that happens, and the problem is solved – no money or (or lives) needlessly wasted. Far as I know, it is illegal to “rehome” raccoons. They are destroyed.



    We also have a nest of raccoons in our shed. There are humane removal companies, but they are so booked up that it’ll be weeks before they can even come to see you. I advise patience and then fix any holes that gave them access. It’s a pain, I know. Good luck!
