Raccoons bend corn stalks down to eat the ears.
They break open and scoop out watermelons. They can be devastating for poultry farmers and will occasionally attack family pets. Control measures include keeping pet food put away inside a tightly closed metal container, securing garbage can lids, and erecting a 5- to 6-foot fence or a two-wire electric fence. Repellents may help temporarily. Live trapping in a wire cage trap is usually effective. If trapping raccoons, use caution. They may be cute but can be vicious with very sharp teeth and claws.

Raccoon in the Attic

To Wildlife-Proof Your Home We Suggest You Consider the Following Areas. Roof Vents

Constructed of light weight aluminum or plastic, they are no obstacle for animals seeking entry into attics.


If not screened properly, they make suitable living quaters for raccoons and squirrels. Birds often fall into open chimneys and become stuck at the bottom. Sometimes these animals even enter the "living space" of the home.

Plumbing Vent Pipes

If left unprotected, they are an invitation to animals seeking den sites inside of the house. Once inside the pipe, wildlife often become stuck and obstructs the normal function of the buildings plumbing system.

Stove & Bathroom Exhaust Vents

If unsecured, they make ideal nesting sites for birds and sometimes squirrels. This results in noticeable sounds, odours and insects.

Roof and Fascia Spaces

If not properly constructed or due to deterioration, they offer an opportunity for wildlife to chew on the free edge of the wood and gain entry into the attic.

Roof - Soffit Intersection

If left unscreened, they can be easily manipulated by an animal from the outside in order to establish a den site inside the attic space.
