We are currently handling a raccoon problem, a mother with babies. We've only heard the babies and seen them via thermal camera so we're unsure of the age. The people handling the situation are going to catch, release, and patch up our roof. The issue is that they plan on releasing them within the immediate vicinity, and make no guarantees about keeping that same family out of our house. They don't spray anything to cover or remove the scent or repel raccoons from trying to occupy the space again.
If they allow us to release them on our own, or are willing to release them for us in another area, where might a suitable area be within the region? We're in Niagara Falls.
There appears to be a raccoon family living in our roof, inaccessible by the attic in our detached house. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any services, and their costs, that could inexpensively and humanely remove and relocate the family because my father vehemently objects to contacting Humane Wildlife Control since others he knows have had similar issues and it's cost them $500. He doesn't even want me to pop out an e-mail to them asking for a quote.
Is this a general ballpark figure? Google tells me that people in the GTA may have to pay around $150/raccoon, so if this raccoon has like four babies or more, plus a fee just to get them to come out here, obviously that's way more than we'd like to pay.
I'm starting to get a bit desperate because I've heard my father discussing rat traps (and seeing one in our garage) and other very inhumane and fairly stupid, temporary ways of dealing with the situation, and trying to shut the mother out of the area - in the end, it just does more damage to our house when she breaks through.
and hopefully a filter, but if there is no filter I can buy one on my own.
Anyone have any fishtanks to sell? (Must have lid though to keep my newt in)
I would love you forever!!!!
