Raccoon entrance route?


Friend is lucky enough to have a mother raccoon and 4 little ones nesting in her attic. We'll get them out of there, I just can't see how they're getting on the roof to begin with. No trees touching the house, just this fence with some ivy type stuff. The third pic is the far right corner in the 1st and 2nd pics. Is it reasonable that they are going up the fence, up the gutter, and onto the roof?

Raccoon entrance route?


They can climb the down spouts---I have them climbing the cedar corner boards--then the down spouts.

Destructive little bleighters!

Peanut butter---marshmallows and pan cake syrup make a good bait---Come back if you catch a skunk!

Raccoon entrance route?


Really hope I don't catch a skunk on the roof... that could be a problem! The siding and corner posts are vinyl, I thought those would be pretty slippery for them to climb. Guess I need to cut the fence away from the house a bit.

They have hands with fingers---The raccoon is the smartest animal in north America.

(Humans --most anyway--excluded)--I read somewhere that they are in the bear family--I have no idea if it's true--but it sounds good---Mike----
