For the majority of people, it is safer to call a professional or a pest control company to help you. It will ensure that the wildlife removal and relocation is taken care properly by a qualified person. Additionally, using a raccoon trap is another way to ensure that a raccoon is trapped safely. A trap also allows for a safe relocation. You will also need to take the time to decide where you are going to take the raccoon. Keep in mind that the animal will be under some mental distress while it is caught inside the trap. However, there should not be any physical distress at all.
Most traps that are made for catching a raccoon are made with a steel framework and a mesh wire. This type of trap is solid enough to make sure the raccoon is contained and makes it possible to transport the animal safely. Additionally, the mesh wire will enable you to see inside so that you know you have trapped the correct animal. The settings of the trap itself should be very simple also. If the trap is complicated at all, it will potentially cause more mistakes. Remember to add bait. When the raccoon tries to eat the bait, it should cause the trigger to close the door behind it, trapping it effectively.
