Raccoon in Garage

Q: How do I get rid of the raccoon that has taken up residence in my garage?

I have left the door ajar, I have made such a racket my neighbors have complained, he is making a mess and keeps re-adjusting my sensors for the garage door.


A: Raccoons are not an animal you want to mess with. If they feel threatened they will definitely fight (and they can be vicious fighters), and they have very sharp teeth and claws.

Depending on what City you live in, you might be able to get them to set a trap for the raccoon.

If they don't provide this service, then the next best way would be to hire a professional "critter controller". They will have the expertise and equipment necessary to complete the job.
