An adult racoon peers out of the entry point it ripped open to get into the attic.
An unbaited trap was set at the entry point and sides were screened off. The only place the raccoon could go was inside the trap. The raccoon cannot circumvent trap. When its comes out for food and water, it is trapped.
The entry point is repaired and sealed with metal flashing. Raccoons leave behind a large mess in the attic. Decontamination servies are strongly recommended.
Here is a second example. The entry point in this photo is the junction of the soffit and roof. This method of raccoon removal in Orlando, Florida cannot be performed in all circumstances. Some homes in FL cannot be set this way depending on the architecture.
Tile roof homes in particular cannot usually be setup this way.
