  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Massachusetts's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Massachusetts's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Essex county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Beverly animal control for wildlife issues.

Beverly Wildlife Removal Tip: How to catch a raccoon with a snare pole?

How to catch a raccoon with a snare pole? In the first onset of raccoon infestation, it is advisable to make use of a snare pole. This will be useful when it comes to catching a raccoon. This will also be valuable to use when it comes to scaring it. Thus, this will eventually get inside a cage trap that you already have set outside.

In addition to what you need to keep in mind, a raccoon likes to den in the attic. That's probably because a female raccoon has a litter. Now, if you have caught a mother raccoon by way of a snare pole, you need to be sure that you find its babies. You need to remove then one by one. It is also suggested to never forget using a protective gear. This is especially true when it comes to engaging in activities. Bring some headlamp, gloves, facemask and more.

Direct Method

This tactic will only be your second choice if ever the raccoon has not run inside the trap. If ever it does not escape your attic, you may physically capture it using a snare pole. This will never be an easy task for your part. And, you might just end up hurting the animal. It might also hurt you.

If ever you have caught the animal using a snare pole, make it sure using a solid-wall box trap including a solid container. This container is where you will exactly place the raccoon in. Never leave the attic without searching for the babies.

Indirect Method

This is suggested as the best tactic when it comes to capturing a raccoon using a snare pole. There is first a need to search for the entry hole once used by the animal. Install the trap right through the entry hole. And then, go reach the attic. You will need to make use of the snare pole to be able to scare it away. If you already have trapped it, never assume that your job is already done. Look for possible corner and soffit of the attic. There may be baby raccoons around. You will need to remove them one by one.

Think of your Safety

You will also need to think of your safety. This is essential when it comes to dealing and handling raccoons. That is why you also need to tread carefully when catching them. Keep in mind that the danger is not only consisted of bodily harm. They might bite and then scratch you.

Think of Health Risks

In addition to the safety that you will need to keep in mind, you also need to think of the health risks. You may contact a disease after you inhaled dust particles in the attic. Now, you have learned on how to catch a raccoon with a snare pole!
