Trapping a Raccoon

Unfortunately (for them), raccoons, even though appealing as adorable animals, often attack households and farms, acting as genuine pests. Some homeowners choose to San Jose raccoon removal handle an intruder by hiring an expert to trap an animal, or calling local animal patrol. These would be most recommended strategies for trapping and getting rid of raccoons. Sadly, these choices are not always available, San Jose raccoon removal and homeowners are left with no other options but to trap raccoons by themselves. However, trying to trap a raccoon on your own, without expert help, can cause numerous unnecessary harm to you, your household, the raccoon and often other unfortunate animals.



First of all, keep in mind that a raccoon is not at all a small and harmless critter. In fact, raccoons are very strong animals. Being genetic ''cousins'' of bears, they are San Jose snake removal equipped with sharp teeth and claws. They are also very aggressive, intelligent, and capable of getting themselves out of traps. Raccoons may carry various diseases, such as rabies. All these are reasons to be San Jose snake removal extremely cautious when trying to trap a raccoon on your own.

A raccoon is a fast, smart and aggressive animal. It can bite or scratch you, up to the level you might need stitches and a rabies shot. As raccoons are very skillful in breaking out of their San Jose snake removal traps, they can cause damage to your household. In attempt to get away, a raccoon might scratch an ruin doors, walls, fences, and furniture.

Being omnivores, raccoons can be trapped with a large number of baits. However, these baits can attract other innocent animals as well.

This is why choosing a proper bait is extremely important. To target raccoons particularly, it is best to use sweets and marshmallows. They should attract raccoons while other animals shouldn't find them appealing. Anyhow, you should check your traps regularly to make sure that you haven't San Jose rat control trapped a wrong animal, and release it if you have.

Last, but not the least, a danger of unexpected raccoon trapping is causing unnecessary cruelty to the raccoon. It doesn't really matter what you are San Jose bat removal intending to do with a trapped animal, but inflicting it with unnecessary torture is not justified. If a trap hasn't been set up properly, a raccoon can suffer a great deal of pain from sun exposure, dehydration or cold.

Now that you are aware of all the caution needed to properly trap a raccoon, let's discuss some methods and techniques of performing it. First of all, getting an animal trapped is consisted of two phases: setting up a bait and properly setting a trap. As I mentioned earlier, make sure to San Jose rodent extermination choose the right bait. Most common traps used are deadly traps, leg traps, and a cage trap. A deadly trap is mostly used by professionals who wish to trade with the animals’ fur later on. This trap is similar to a mouse or rat trap.This is a very San Jose rodent extermination dangerous technique to perform without the expert supervision. If not properly placed, this trap can also harm other people, animals, and of course- you (someone needs to place that bait, right?).

The leg trap is made out of leg gripper, a chain and a handle that is stabilized in the ground. It is made to trap the raccoon's paw. If not placed properly, it may leave San Jose bird control raccoon vulnerable to sunlight, heat or cold, as well as predators who might torture it, again, unnecessarily. Cage trap, if set properly, is one of the most recommended techniques to use, as it inflicts the least harm on the animal. It is made of the wire cage and a lid that traps the animal once it gets a bait San Jose bird control inside it. For this trap to work properly, the lid needs to be firm and entire cage should be proof to animal breaking it. If you are using a cage to trap the animal in your own house, make sure to place it somewhere far from electric utilities or cables, water or places that are exposed to extreme temperature conditions, to avoid inflicting unnecessary cruelty on the animal.
