Bridgeport pest control

We are Connecticut's top experts in wildlife and raccoon control. We are not a typical Bridgeport raccoon control or pest control company. We don't treat wild animals like insects, because they are not! You can't just use poison to get rid of them. You also can't just set a few traps on the ground and call it good. Each situation is unique. And remember, if you have raccoons living in your house, it is almost certainly a female with a litter of young inside. These juveniles must be removed by hand, or they will starve to death and die. And after they are gone, the entry holes into the house must be sealed with professional repairs. Unlike most Bridgeport pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas with professional grade steel
  • If in attic, we remove the baby raccoons by hand
  • Technical and human raccoon trapping appropriate to situation
  • When necessary, we clean raccoon droppings and replace insulation

Bridgeport Raccoon Control Tip: Tricks To Help Catch A Trap-Shy Raccoon
The practice of trapping and relocating raccoons is one that has been taking place for decades across the United States, and it is largely considered to be the most humane way of dealing with these nuisance animals. However, from time to time you may encounter a raccoon that has become more cautious of the traps, and may have memories of the last time they tried to take the food from a metal cage. This is known as being trap-shy, and there are several techniques that can be used to catch these raccoons.

Pre-Baiting And Varying The Bait Used
If one particular bait is not proving to be effective when you are trying to catch a trap-shy raccoon, then trying to vary the bait that you use, such as by switching from canned pet food to peanut butter or marshmallows may prove successful. Pre-baiting may require a little more effort, and involves laying out the bait in the same location several night running. Only once you start to see signs of the raccoon returning to that area each night should you then lay the trap with the bait inside.

Changing The Location Of Your Trap
Location is one of the most important factors when it comes to catching raccoons, and changing the location of the trap to another spot which also has signs of raccoon activity may make the trap more successful. If you are struggling with a problem raccoon, but you can see it uses the same hole in the fence each night, then you can place the trap near this particular part of your yard or garden, where it may be more likely to catch the trap-shy animal.

Washing And Cleaning Your Trap Before Placement
Another approach to dealing with a trap shy raccoon is to make sure that you give the cage a wash before placing it, as the raccoon may have learned to associate the smell of people with danger. When you are placing the trap, it is also worth wearing gloves to reduce the transference of scent from your bare hands on to the cage trap. When you are placing the trap, disguising it using leaves and other foliage around your garden can also help to make the trap appear to be a more natural part of the yard or garden that will help quieten the raccoon's natural instincts and caution.

Using Chicken Wire To Funnel The Animal Into The Trap
If you are really struggling to catch a particular raccoon that is evading your best trapping techniques, then using chicken wire can be a very helpful tool. This is particularly successful if you have a raccoon nesting under decking or a porch, or even if they are nesting in the chimney. Ultimately, use the chicken wire to create a tunnel or funnel that will force the raccoon into the trap when it is leaving the nest, rather than allowing it to go about its daily business.

Hiring A Professional To Catch A Problem Animal
Ultimately, if you have come across a trap-shy raccoon, it may be worth considering whether the work required in order to catch the animal will be worth the investment of time required to try the different tricks. At this stage, you may want to consider hiring an animal removal expert to catch and remove the raccoon on your behalf, to free up your time to deal with everything else around the home. An animal removal expert in an area where raccoons are common will often have the experience and their own range of tricks in order to deal with a trap-shy raccoon, so can be worth the fee to resolve the issue.
