  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Texas'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 Texas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Lufkin Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Catch A Raccoon With A Snare Pole?

There are different ways to get rid of raccoons, such as using cage traps, repellents or even snare poles. Although cage traps are one of the most effective ways to trap a raccoon, the use of a snare pole is needed when the raccoon is old or injured and is unable to move and we need to snare it out from a position where we cannot reach and exclude them using our hands and traps donít work as well.

Avoid catching healthy adult raccoons using a snare pole as it may do more harm than good and the raccoon may end up attacking you if they feel threatened. However, exclusion of babies can be carried out safely.

Making a Snare Pole

You can always make a snare pole by yourself without buying one from the supermarket. You can make the handle as long as you want so that you get a sufficient reach and be successful in snaring out the raccoon. For making it you need a PVC diameter of 0.5 inches in diameter and a desired length, 4 inches of copper pipe that can be used as a T handle, two copper pieces to sweat the copper pipes together and prevent wear and tear caused by the copper cables, 8 feet of copper cables, hacksaw, hammer and an electric drill. Hereís how to assemble it. Put the copper end pieces on and drill through the PVC pipe so that the copper cable can go right through it. Put a stop set in order to prevent it from pulling through and become loose. Take the other end of the cable and take it out through the other end of the PVC pipe. Now drill a hole through the copper end piece which is to be used as a T handle and thread through the hole in the copper end piece. Put on a stop set and adjust the length of the copper cable in order to ensure that a sufficient loop can be made in which the raccoon can be trapped, and put a stop end to it and hammer it down to make the loop last, and your snare pole is done!

Using it effectively

Before you apply it on the raccoon make sure that you have blocked any other potential entry/exit points. Now slowly take the pole forward and try to get the head and feet in between the loop, and pull it tight ensuring that the raccoon is trapped. After trapping it ensure that you release the raccoon in to a cage trap very quickly to prevent it from getting traumatized. Take it to a wildlife center where experts will take care of its health and set them free in the wild.
