There’s a raccoon living in my attic * 1
    #27258370 - 03/18/21 05:58 AM (1 month, 18 days ago)

I kept hearing noises so I went up and looked and there’s a fucking raccoon tearing up the insulation. I thought for sure it would panic and run out whatever hole it found to get in but instead it was curious about me and got within a few feet. I yelled and stomped and it just kinda looked at me like it knew that it was safe from me being able to get to it. I threw tennis balls at it and it jumped back then started playing with the balls. It’s still up there.



I’m itchy now from the fiber glass insulation. The raccoon is using it to make a bed. I don’t know how it can deal with it

A few weeks ago something dug up holes in the front yard. Big holes six inches deep. Tore up the grass. I smoothed it all out and planted grass seed. The next day I noticed lots of little holes in the same places where the animal had dug. They are the pilot holes for the periodical cicadas that are emerging in a month or so. Yesterday the same area was torn up again. This raccoon is digging out cicada nymphs 🤦‍♂️

You are going to have to trap it before it makes babies. They are extremely smart and capable animals. They can also be vicous, I would avoid contact even though it maybe cute and curious. An exterminator should be able to do this or you might be able to find a person to do it for the fur. Note it is usually illegal to relocate wildlife.

It is possible that it is also digging the lawn buy more likely a skunk or possum.

Next time you have a dark night (and after your guest is gone) plug the brightest light you have in up in the attic and go outside, after your eyes adjust to the dark you should be able to clearly see light coming through gaps. You can put tape to mark the gaps and come back and fill them later. They make a minimally expanding foam that has a bitterant to prevent animals from eating it. The foam cans are really single use, so you will want to get set up and hit all the gaps at once. Gaps you may not want to use foam on can be stuffed with pieces of stainless steel or copper chor boys.

I suppose if you want to pull an all nighter :tweak: you could wait for it to leave at night and try to fill the gaps before it returns. A motion camera will help with this, they usually come out as soon as it gets dark to go search for food and friends.

But it is usually legal to dispatch or relocate nuisance species from your own property.

The real question here is, invited or uninvited?

A real man would bring the coon into the house and domesticate the shit out of him. Collar and all. Koods could even get him registered as a support animal. You can name him schwifty!

A few years ago I had a raccoon discover my cat door and come live in my basement. During the day he just liked to sleep on a garbage bag full of insulation and at night he'd go out. He immediately figured out the kitty litter and only ever pooped in the cat box. He was a really nice low-maintenance roommate and I took to leaving out water and cat food in his little corner. Eventually he stopped coming around. I like to imagine he found a nice girl raccoon and moved into her place to start a family and they're living happily ever after. I know it's dumb to let a wild animal live in your house like that but he was very polite and I have no regrets.
